    If you should be wanting to check out the judged show car, it is Friday only. So plan accordingly. If your only able to attend the event for one day, I would say that Friday is the best day. Saturday will draw those who will drive in on Friday evening or Saturday morning. The larger vendors will set up on Thursday, but you will see guys pulling in on Saturday morning with parts that they are looking to sell from their garage collection.

    Well be there! I have my Duster registered but I’ll have to see if I can get it and my truck ready by then.

    Well this was not what I was hoping to have to do right before the Nats! My 2003 Ram's limited slip decided to break a couple of the clutch pack clips. The truck only has 80k miles on it and I was just changing diff fluid as a preventative maintenance when I noticed 2 clips were broken and sitting in the bottom of the diff on the magnet. Hoping to get it rebuilt and back together by Friday so I have a few days to drive it around before hooking up a trailer and hauling my car 1600 miles with it.

      How sweet is it to have your own lift? ! I just installed one a few months ago in my garage and what a difference when it comes to wrenching!

        I love it! Kinda got spoiled though. If we've got one of the cars on the lift and say I need to do an oil change on a different one... will I do it on the floor on ramps now? Heck no, I'll wait for the lift to open up in a few days :D

          We need to meet at Denny's tent some particular time. There's usually a bunch of FABO folks around there.

                    Well I live in columbus so I'll likely be around at some point. Probably not in the Duster though, I still haven't replaced the transmission pan yet, been lazy.

                        @HemiDenny , If we stop over to see you guys and meet up with other members, what would be a good time. It sounds like Saturday would be the day.

                            If you’re staying or planning to stay at the Days Inn near Brice Rd, you may want to make a call. It’s currently burning (on fire). The exits from I70 E&W to Brice Rd are currently closed.

                            Made it up there just at the rain stopped. Still debating whether to go back up tomorrow and buy some parts I came across. Center console for $90, and decent shape pair of '72 duster bucket seats with tracks for $450. I just have so many projects right now and I know if I buy them it could be a year or more before I do anything with them.

                            The drag strip was a bit disappointing, just too many Rams new Chargers. And a durango. I did not take my Duster, it was not meant to be. Replaced my trans pan, drove a few blocks and suddenly my front wheel bends/twists/dents and rubbed my caliper. Didn't hit a hole or nothing, just driving la-de-da-grind-grind-grind! Local shop said they've had poor luck straightening Weld racing wheels and wouldn't do it. Then my muffler fell of my Ram and my shift pedal on my bike snapped off. All in a single day! *rant over*

                            MY 02 quadcab had 168,000 on it when I traded it. The book said to go to synthetic oil in the rear for towing, I did and never had a problem. Mopar wanted $36 a qt for it back then , I bought a qt. at oriellies for $16 bucks, and topped it off w/ the orig fluid from the drain, (truck was fairly new) .

                            I thoroughly enjoyed looking at the detail of your GTS. The standard that all others will be judged. Thanks.
                            Check out the tail light detail from the inside, right down to the wire labels. 68 gts int trunk 1.jpg 69 gts int trunk 2.jpg
