          Hey everyone , I went last year and drove my truck but if the weather holds up I'd like to drive my Duster but I don't want to park in general parking . Is there special place to park our cars ?

          Yeah,
          when you come in buy a pass for the fun field.
          You get 2 passes and you park with the rest of the show cars.
          You must go thru gate A and it's going to cost about $80 for the weekend.
          It's cheaper if you pre register.

          I have one extra three day pass pass I would sell for $30 if anyone is going that needs one. I will be staying in Buckeye Lake arriving Thursday late afternoon.

              Stop by our tent located in rows R and S in spaces 17 through 32 for a wide assortment of reproduction restoration parts. We will have a huge assortment of weatherstripping including the Top Catwhiskers, washer bottles, battery cables, package trays, etc.

              This year, Bob Baker of ABC Moparts will be setting up with us and will have a large assortment of dash pads and arm rest pads. So if your looking for the best quality reproduction dash pads, stop by and see what he has to offer. Do not forget your dash pad cores.

              Even if you should not need anything, there is always chairs available and cold water to refresh yourself while walking the grounds. Everyone have safe travels.

                  Thankfully nobody was hurt from the reports that I have heard from the track and the staff of the Nationals. Numerous tents, were blown down by 60 MPH plus winds and heavy rain. The HDK tent went down along with the Legendary tent and ours.

                  I want to thank all of the people who helped to pickup, sort out and help us salvage the inventory. We will try to make the best of the weekend and be thankful that noboby was hurt.

                  Still not out of the woods as some heavy storms are still West of the track.

                  Here are two pictures of the remains of our space. The tent was 40 by 120 and was no small EzUp stake tent, so you can only imagine the amount of wind to pick up the tent or the bins which can weigh over 600 pounds each.

                  Down but not out. We did a head count then started to pick up the pieces. I think The Nats is going to get us a small tent to keep Butch and company out of the sun and it looks like most everyone is staying. Got a large dent on the hood of the Flash along with a few small dings on the silver Duster. The Missiles appear to escaped unharmed which was good news. We will be back early tomorrow for more fun.

                    Thanks for checking in Denny. Sounds like it could have been a lot worse. Good to hear all of you are ok.

                    Dang, hopefully you can put things back together and make the weekend productive. It sounds like the weather the rest of the weekend will be nice.
