I have the same problem here with Stoneleigh, anyone would think it was sprung on us at a months notice.
I tried to explain to the president, the dean of the college, and esteemed members of the faculty, the importance of this event. They, unfortunately, were unsympathetic to my pleas.

Life, as it's said, gets in the way sometimes. I've hit the show every year for the past 12 years.. but this year I won't be doing my usual 3 day stint. Just Saturday, if it doesn't rain.

I'm planning on taking the Sebring down on Saturday.I have been daily driving it and its running pretty good. I just put new wheel bearings in it for the trip. That's one thing I dread having to fix on the road. almost every other problem you can patch to get you to the next town. Is my car going to have any other family members there? Where's the best place to park, or do they tell you where?

They'll tell you where to go after you register. You'll have to go in Gate 4 where the registration building is, then out to the field. You'll probably see other kits and buggies where you're supposed to be - just pick an open spot. Should be quite a few. Unfortunately yours may be the only one there. I'm out with still working on the exhaust, Fuzz had other plans that were unavoidable, I don't know what Warren's plan is yet (webmaster). We were talking about riding out together... either in my Vette or if he has one of his cars road legal, maybe his Cimbria. Try to get there early....

Default Likely be there

Rick and crew,

I just realized that Carlisle was this coming weekend! I have made zero progress on my kit since last years show when I swore that I'd have a lot of progress to report, maybe even a running car. Well, I do have a running car, it's just a donor that hasn't been disassembled yet. But I changed jobs to one that pays less but has more hours - not the kind of life change conducive to new projects. But I'm 110% happier than at my old job, so I'm not complaining. I'm about 50/50 as to if I can make it. If I do, I'll arrive at 8am and leave at 11am as I usually do - which means from DC to PA there is more time in the car than at the show. Rick - I'll gladly play freeway spotter if you need one (or was it someone else who asked for that?). I'm assuming Warren will make an appearance? He does live like 3 minutes away.

Haven't heard from Warren yet. I've got a text to him to see what his plans are for tomorrow. True to form, there's now a 50% chance of t-storms, so the field may likely be very sparse. I'll try to get there relatively early, so PM me with your cell number and I'll give you a ring when I get to the field.

Yep, just got back. Warren and I drove in together early this morning and found the two cars on the field which was nice - thanks for representing us today! It was (still is) hazy, hot and humid and the a/c on my car of choice today decided to take a leave of absence. We didn't stay long, just enough to chat with the owners for a bit and peruse the field for the weird and interesting....



Cool Alpine. Funky from the rear...



Brabus built Smart 2/4. Only available in the UK, this one was on loan from a museum in Kentucky..


New Alfa 4C... just gorgeous...


Fiat Monza Zagato Abarth


Lancia Scorpion


BMW Z1, and yes, the doors disappear downwards electrically...

Thanks for posting up a few pics Rick. I'm suprised Dave from Sterling wasn't there.
