you definitely dont need to stand next to your car all day. its a pretty safe atmosphere and there are enough of us working the show where it isnt a problem. Police also petrol the lot.

Looks like my miata MIGHT be back together for the show. I pulled the motor on saturday and took it all apart. It is going back in thursday night.

Do you guys wanna meet and go get breakfast or meet and be ready to go?
Probably enter the cars right....its only $10 right? I wouldn't stand next to the car the whole time, just prop the hood up a little and then walk around and see all the rich kids cars . I'm down for breakfast or to just head out. If we leave that truck stop at 9, we'd be there by 10ish, Dave how quickly will the lot fill up?

Do we wanna hook up with these guys on our way up? Might make us look like more of a crew, lol. Otherwise it may just be you and I Nick. I'm sure Chris will drive up with us, but I heard he was having a few issues with his car that he was sorting out....so he will probably be miataless.

Hmmmmm yeaaaahhhh... How about no! They are a bunch of **** and dorks from m.net, they tryed to make me go to their house for a club meet to eat hotdogs and wash cars.... I think he just wanted to see me getting wet and hot while eating a hotdog? And I don't even know what kind of hotdogs he was talking about... Although it would be fun to smoke them on the highway and toy around with their shitty cars, but then again I got your shitty car to toy around with

I'll be coming, but not in the miata. I haven't touched it since its been smoking, so **** it. lol

I figured I would still come down and check out the cars and take the gf out for a nice day.

Nick last time I saw your car it was wayy different, it'll be cool to see how far its come. Also looking forward to checking out cspense's and fastcolt's rides.

Also a big +1 to the nutmeg crew. Not at all the same kind of enthusiasts. Not to be a dick or anything, just sayin. lol
