Ed

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!

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.

The dinner is Friday evening, and yes the VIP gets you into the show and races.
