    Ill be there before 8 to browse and shop, take some pics but my car is STILL not ready...:-( Handicaps are not always physical, been through that with a relative. How does the Jazzy run in grass? This event always has some soggy areas for some reason, broken sprinkler pipes? There is always an incapacitated man in a powered wheelchair that gets around there but he has some larger wheels. Its ALL GRASS 'cept the parking across the street. Has lots of shade.

    The Jazzy is ok on grass. It can be a jarring ride at times, but still beats trying to walk it.

      Excellent!

      I'll be there with my dart, gold with black fiberglass hood. Wearing an AHRA shirt.

      Ah, maybe not. I'm not going to pay $30 just so people can look at my car.

      I have no intention of entering a car show. No reason to drive it down there. The 405 is pretty rough in a few spots and my suspension is really stiff.

        We should schedule a FABO meet and greet at one of the tents (Glendora Dodge with GTXJohn?) at 10:00 or something. I'm usually back on the road home by 11:00

          The pre registrations are flying in now. About 8-10 a day now. Will ramp higher next few days.

          Swap is looking good… Lots of two (truck and trailer) and many big three swap space (truck and 2-car trailer/driven car for sale etc)

          should be epic! 18 months of backed up projects need to be completed or sold off!

            If your a seller and a FABO member, put a FABO sign on your transport window or something so we can meet and solicit your stuff. 5% FABO discount! :)

            Yeah, I’ll have a bunch of narrowed A body 8 3/4 rear ends there, possibly some large and small bolt disc brake setups, and a few other parts if they fit in my truck.

              Can’t wait. After the show I’ll be heading to IMM engines to pick up my motor, and dropping off a set of speedmaster heads for some work. :)

                We sent a fellow club member there (300mi round trip) and he just got back the machine work, balance, and other stuff from IMM.

                another club member is getting close to pulling the trigger.

                Brian should get a swap spot at the show.

                        Fall Fling 2021 pre-reg paid in advance numbers are already greater than last 2019 Fall Fling.


                        Swappers have a lot of parts stored up since there hasn’t been many shows. Talked to many people bringing Mopars for sale too. Don’t miss out on opportunity, bring plenty of cash


                        Weather looks great: 72 degrees, partly cloudy.


                        This looks to be a great show

                          I was gonna go. Family tradition deal since I was little. Parents will be out of state and I have a ton of plumbing to do on my car anyways. I just keep telling myself if I miss this one, I can bring the car to the next one.

                          The Pre Reg numbers for both swap meet and car show are now greater than the last 2019 Fall Fling. We cutoff pre reg tomorrow and we are getting 20-30 a day now. There’s been 4 this morning and it’s only 7:30 am.

                          It would make since being this is the first ‘Fling since 2019, that it might be between typical Spring Fling and Fall Fling size. Larger than past Fall shows.

                            Nice. Hopefully I can find a set of those blue anodized DC valve covers for a small block.
