First Post for Auto Fair

Happy new Year Guys just thought I give everyone a heads up for the 2008 Charlotte, North Carolina, Auto Fair April 5 the fair of course is the 3rd thru the 6th but we just do the Saturday Show on the 5th. I you haven't been to the Auto Fair or wonder what it is about check out www.charlotte-autofair.com. We will probably have 15 slots again but if we need more we may be able to get them, if we ask early.

Remember if you show your car any condition from a sparkling show car to a I'm really working on it is cool, you get a prime parking area and free tickets to roam the field. So let us know if your coming.

Rick

THE COUNT:

Thndrckn and 2 people
Trunk Monkey 2 people

Hey Rick, I have attended the autofair for several years spring and fall and plan to again this year. The schedule does show different dates from the ones you posted unless I am looking at it wrong, which is entirely possible. I had it all screwed up last year when I told my buddies but they were quick to show me the error of my ways. We got it right and enjoyed it and spent some more money on some more stuff that we will probably have to build another shop to store it in. It seems to be a viscous cycle when you love cars and mechanical things.

Looking forward to it Mikey!

Kevin-Just hoping to have it swapped in time. I may get the new rims/tires before then but I doubt it.

Sitting in the meeting right now and guess what-We're finally in the infield!!!!

I'm going to spam people to find out who else is in. We've got 15 slots and 30 passes.

For now let's get posting to get an accurate count.

Gate opens at 6:30am so we need to meet @ 6am... Sonic or do you guys want to meet on the other side of the street?

BTW-anyone have a problem with me taking over as NC chapter director?

I had hoped to make it down for this one but its not going to happen. With the new job I can't get the time off yet.

Seems like its always something for this and the SCCOA Shootout meet in September that keeps me from going.

I used to be everywhere, but not anymore.

Maybe one day. I know I've been promising Rick and Harriet to make it to one of these for a while now.

Everyone have fun and I look forward to the pics!!!!!!
