When I registered it included an assigned parking space so maybe if you call someone they can be sure to assign you two together.  Or maybe you would get that if you registered both at once.

Will be great to see both cars there!

This is going to be the best Cobra Jet re-union this year and possibly ever, so make sure you pre-register so you don't miss out!

Let's get the cars out!

Barn Finds, Unrestored cars, Project cars, Special Paint cars, 135 cars, Torinos, Cougars ,Rancheros, Fairlanes, Clones, 351CJ, 428CJ, 429CJ, the one of one cars, and of course the race cars!

just registered both W-code verts & they will be showed together under the tent with the feature cars. Also we are taking both cars to  Detroit Woodward the weekend before & going to northern MI. vacationing between the 2 shows. We will leave the 2 verts at georges place CDC  in northern detroit while traveling north then pick them up on the way to norwalk. Both cars will be back to Detroit for the first time 50 years later after they were built there when new.

There is the possibility of adding swap meet spots for Cobra Jet related parts if there is enough interest.
Will need 10 + vendors to commit.

I talked to some 135 car owners and think we are currently at 10!  I'd love to get 12+ to beat the number that was at the 40th.  Also trying to contact owners of cars that have not been publicly seen or rarely seen to get them out.

I'm going to try to get a pack of stick-on paper labels that we can use as name tags. Find me on site (I'll be wearing a name tag), get your name tag, write your name and your forum name, and stick it somewhere where people can see it.

Danny I don't know where your count is on "135" cars is but Carl Tasca told my dad the other day that 2 of the 10 first 50 CJ's that were shipped to Tasca will be there. The 135041 Super Stock car and the 135019 car they called Street Bertha. Both cars have spent some time on display at the dealership recently thanks to they're owners. The Tasca group is also staying at Sawmill and I'm looking forward to meeting some of you and talking with some of the CJ legends.

Anyone know who to call about a spot in the car show ?  I'm picking up a "barn find" Q code 70 Mach1 on Tuesday that I'm thinking of trailering out if there's any interest .....  The good- the car is a mostly original grabber green Q code mach1 with AC, AM/FM, Fold down, rear spoiler, tach, and space saver spare that was parked in an inner city garage  in 1989, The Bad ... it looks like the garage fell on it, the roof and hood are kinda dented ...

Think this is worth trailering out ?

I know they expect cars to register at the gate, but it won't include the VIP stuff (meals, etc.).  I would call the number on the pre-registration flyer to see if they can answer more clearly. Sweet purchase, I'd love to see it!
