I know someone who reserved a room at The Sawmill Resort but will not be able to attend the show so the room is available.

PM me if interested & I will put you in touch.

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 ?
