Charlotte Spring Auto Fair 2007

It's that time, the start of a new year, racing, shows, and meets. The Charlotte Spring Auto Fair Show Dates are April 14th and 15th. This one is huge something like the 4th largest in the country, lots of stuff for sale, thousands of show cars, and lots of fun. We of course will have the cook-out and plenty of Shop talk in the garage. ha

We have 10 slots and I am asking for 15 will ask for more if I get some early responses. Also if you need Hotel rooms let me know in advance I mean like SOON and I will call around and get a block. Most everyone has my e-mail address if not contact me through TCCOA.

Sure hope we can make it down for it this year. I wanna say yes but I'll just have to see how it plays out between now and then.

It would be great seeing you both again and the Carolina gang. The 1MTNCAT is just itching for a long road trip anyway.

So yeah that whole banning thing makes it hard to stay in touch. FIANCE?!?!?!?!?! I take it that you are referring to Nina? Anywho congrats with that. I'm guessing we're not going seeing as how we no longer have birds. Hopefully we'll get to see ya again before we move in 2008.

I know this sounds really dumb. But, I've never been to the show before.

Tell me more. I'd assume that to get a spot or slot means you're showing your car. Not just finding a place in the parking lot to park next to each other. I'd like to meet everyone in the Charlotte area and this sounds like the place and time.

Details please.

Mods? Yea, I got mods ...
Air silencer delete, warp drive, dilithium crystals, flux capacitor, Slingshot Rubber band power adder, Moonshine & Gas, Leaf Blower Supercharger, Hamster Wheel & Hamster, Energizer Bunny generating 1.21 gigawatts, Mr. Fusion® Home Energy Reactor, hover conversion and a sextant celestial navigation system (The original GPS)
Best 1/4: 1,320 nanoseconds @ 670,616,629.2 miles per hour

Yep spot is a place to show your car. We will probably be in the grassy area out side the gate, not in the parking lot. There are some rules so if your interested let me know and it is the place to meet the best people. We meet at sonic at 7am park, play, leave at 4pm to our place for a Burger, and Beverage. Some folks come by Friday night to clean their cars.

Robert P congrads talk to you later. We've ordered the heads.

Kodiak we could do a little body make over and engine swap so your car would look and run like a bird. If your not into that, you know your still welcomed.

DO you have a hotel the club is staying at? also THUNDRCKN what are these rules you were talking about? Sorry so many questions but this sounds like a great time and don't want to miss any details to cause me to miss out.

There is no extra charge for showing the car.

By telling him you are coming you are preregistering.

There are many hotels in the area and if you are looking to get one you should let Dad, THNDRCKN, know asap.

Best bet would be to email him through the site, or he may post up the rules.

Dad is there enough room for Myself and Frank at the house? If not I need to look into a hotel room too.

Cougardoc, we wont let ya miss out.

Here is the list as I have it so far.

1. THNDRCKN
2. 1MNTCAT-?
3. Wayne
4. Wayne's Friend
5. Hotrod88lsc
6. Kwkslvr96
7. Page
8. MadMikey
9. 94Tbirdv8
10. 94tbirdv8's dad
11. Syphosis
12. RobertP
13. TrunkMonkey
14. Ox
15. CougarDoc.


Just trying to help ya out THNDRCKN.

I do go on lincolnsonline every now and then (lscinpa) but most of the time on thelincolnmarkVII club.org also lscinpa. I will have to bring one of my marks. If we are going to be the only marks there it might be better if I bring my Gold 86 base model, two white ones might get overlooked.
