    I just got confirmation from Mr. 4 Speed himself, Herb McCandless, that he will be attending this years Moparfest.

    I went to his newly opened Museum in North Carolina during the HOTROD Power Tour in June and it was awesome.

    He told me then that he was thinking about coming back up to Moparfest after missing last year, and just confirmed via text that he will be in attendance.

    You must attend his performance seminar in the Hockey arena. He is one excellent story teller about the good old days of factory sponsored drag racing, and he also shares his extensive Mopar knowledge too.

    You won't be disappointed!

        I have yet to attend the performance clinic.
        Maybe I will remember this year.

        I won't show till Sunday. Saturday we are making the drive to the campground with the kids.

        I have not heard anything about the Weiner party.

        But we likely will have a fruity tray with a side of veggies
        We will also have a coleman camping grill/bbq thingy

        Good afternoon,
        Wanted to let you guys know that after spending 24 hours at the border, Layson's Restorations will not be able to attend Moparfest 2018 as previously planned due to the broker in Canada used not filing paperwork correctly. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, our crew will be back to home base by Wednesday so If you have any questions or concerns please wait till then contact them.

        Sincerely, Layson's Restorations

        It could be the rain that's keeping some people away. There is localized flooding here in Toronto

        As a spectator, the Valiant has turned into a can of worms

        ouch I know the feeling but in the end it will be right I'm sure . Nobody has responded about the shade tent or bbq yet so I guess I'll plan on bringing food sunday after we figure it out tomorrow .
        PS NO I didn't try to ship fresh Halibut again !

        The ride report from my buddies that drove down from Ottawa was bleak... monsoon rains from Perth to Guelph! That's a long way to be bailing out a leaky Valiant convertible! Felt bad for the guys.

        I'm sure all is forgotten now, weather there looks terrific for today. So jealous that I couldn't make it out... :(

        didn't take any haha ...................actually Steve {4spragtop} took some I'm going to take some tomorrow , slow start not a lot of cars in the morning but it filled out through the day and should be good tomorrow .I attended the Herb McCandless talk , it was interesting for what it was , they handed a small booklet out before he started and it was basically a recitation of that booklet , some real good general advice but no real insight into tuning or setting up the car , it was all about "use this oil , buy this plug wire set , etc.....
