    Always a great show. If you have never been, make sure you take time to walk the ship and sub. That is some serious American muscle. You can go from the battery at the bottom to nearly the top.

    We make it over there every year. Most likely again this year. I've seen it better in the past but it always makes for a good day to enjoy some really fine Mopars.

    one year they had two or three new vendors there, and picked up a lot of new stuff for the dart. haven't seen em since. usually there's mostly old b body junk there. I tried to get some mopar vendors interested in cruising the coast, but I guess it's not worth their time.

    Absolutely, you cannot find anything for a MOPAR at Cruising the Coast. I once found a set of 70 Dart bumpers in the bumper vendor rack, my car is a 71 so no good for me. He wanted 1800.00 for those bumpers. He probably still has them.

    A question for aaadave and 67dart_drop_top. Since the towns we live in are so close together, just wondering if we have ever crossed paths at one point or another. I go to cruise in's in Pascagoula and always in Ocean Springs driving the highway. Just wondering, sure would like to introduce myself if we ever do. The orange dart is everywhere for sure.

    I actually live up in hurley, so don't get down to pas or the coast for that matter all that much. in the dart that is. i'll be at the battle ship, but depending on time, I don't know if i'll take the dart. 38 dodge lives in your neck of the woods over in woolmarket, if he's still there. haven't heard from him in awhile. will be hanging around with tom ( easy rider) with his black 65 dart convert. look us up. dave.

    I'll probably drive down for the day. Trying to figure out if I'm going to take any swap meet stuff. Took some a couple of years ago and didn't have much luck. I guess you just have to have something that someone is looking for at that particular time. Mine stuff is mostly small block, A body.

    I would like to come but every year I attend a Men's Night Out at a friends lodge. All the crawfish, extra large shrimp, catfish fillets and all the trimmings with all kinds of desserts all furnished by my friend and no cost to the 250 plus men that attend. It is always the last Fri night in April. Maybe one event will change dates one year so I can come down, Joe

    tell you what. It is the best meal and person can find. I have been knowing Doyle since 7th grade. He was just a good ole country boy that happened to do very well for himself but he never forgot where he came from. He has been doing this for several years. I will just have to wait for Cruizin'thecoast

    Hey Moe, I am not big on The Cruise Ins around here. I do not know why. I think it is that I am usually super busy with my kids on Fridays. I have four of them around high school age, and they all play/played multiple sports.

    I did stop in once when we were making a run to the store, but I was not in one of my old cars. If I talked with you, it would have been about a brake issue that I had problems troubleshooting.

    We will eventually cross paths. I will look for the Orange Dart!!!

    It was a good day at the Battle Ship. Weather was good until it was over. Went through a storm on our way home. Good test, the top didn't leak!

    I was there! I took my daughter and my youngest son. I wanted them to see some nice cars and boy did we! Lots of beautiful cars. I saw your car as well it is very very nice and best of all my family enjoyed seeing classic Mopars.

    Thanks 67fbcuda, it was a fun day. Sorry I missed you. I sure talked to a lot of people about that car. One of my favorite shows. I hope they don't ruin it with all those new cars that you can go to the Dodge dealer to see.

    Yeah it was my first time to go and I really didn't expect to see all of the newer cars there. It didn't really bother me though, I will go again next year and I will look you up. Maybe you could put a sign up saying "FABO member here" I'm sure most members would certainly like to meet and talk.
