How many out there are planning on going? I'm making plans to be there with my Squire. Just gotta figure out where to park my trailer and truck during the show. Anyone know of any spots available close to the show?

I've never been there so I have no idea where the Sears is at lol. How far of a walking distance are we talking? And the car will probably not be street legal so I would have to be close enough to sneak in without getting caught by California's finest  8)

Questions: Are we still meeting Sunday morning at Carrows? Also, what about bag stuffing? There was no interest in it last year, and I have fun doing it.

Well, I sent off my registration form, finally! LOL Almost forgot to do it. So excited about going that I figured I was already registered! LOL I also reserved my room at the Knott's Hotel.

We have purchased the parts for Nellie, but have yet to put them on her. She is still in the garage awaiting her parts. LOL I think Bob plans on doing it this week sometime. No matter what though, she will be done in time to go. :D

Someone usually makes a head count for breakfast at Carrows which is about 3 blocks from knotts on Beach blvd. If you think you'll be coming even to support the Pinto without your ride. Let the forum know. We have good time. Even looking at 800 mustangs with mod. motors. Wow.   :o

I would like to, but with gas prices sky-high, I'd have to spend the night up there to do it.

Ill be there!
 Ok, we are all set for Carrows in the morning. We can figure out where to meet after the day of. There are a lot of nice places so it iwll depend on who wants do go.
On Sunday we should all try to get to the restaurant by 7:00. It takes about 1 hour to get through breakfast and the other things we do at breakfast.
                 
Sunday: 7:00 am meet at Carrows for breakfast and fun and games/give aways.
              8:30 am caravan to the show.
              3:00 pm show is over.
              3:30-45 Any ideas?
Here is a link for the mapquest map to where Carrows is.

Carrows
8650 Beach Boulevard
Buena Park, CA 90620-3954
(714) 826-4280

Wait till about 10:30 then go to the operations tent and tell them a emergency came and need to leave, they will give you a couple people to escort your car out the nearest exit. I've never done it myself but, have seen it work that way. Don't think it's going to be a big deal. They just need to set a rule so everyone doesn't start leaving after lunch and get someone hit, California land of lawsuits. Ha Ha. see you there.

It shall be done!  And as an aside, I'm looking forward to seeing that blue monster of yours again.  It's been missed this last few years...
