When I saw the 1500 it was next to the food court and bathroom trailers..lol

Gorgeous condition. My brother thought the rear seat would fit an adult better than the back seats in his Porsche..

So, quick question about RMMR....

Who's bringing the "Hello, My Name Is [ fill-in-the-blank ]" chest labels?

I'll certainly recognize a few people but.... :lol:

But seriously, gonna have to make the rounds fast to meet everyone! "Hi, my name's Mic, that's my car over there. What's yours? OK, bye."

haha I would consider this... but this might be easier!... I am pretty sure Ive seen you with a similar pic!

Image

I probably wont be by my car though too much, but Im leaving my phone number on my car so that when people see the car and want to BS they can just reach out...

Can I park on the infield on Friday and leave it there all weekend? I know they were saying that overnight parking on the infield is at my own risk... which Im fine with.

Hey all, i'm going to try and do another last minute trip up to this show if I can. Most likely leaving Sat morning 4-6am from LA. PM me if you have spare room for the night or a camp spot you can share. I've got my own tent and will pay of course. Cheers.

Look for the valet guy.
Image
Why no, the corral doesn't have valet parking but don't worry, give the scruffy guy your keys anyways. He'll treat your car right. Why, he even inspired a scene in a movie....

Image
Please don't tell me you don't know this classic scene.... :lol:


Or just look for my car, "Shannon's near twin" (but with racing stripes that make it go fast!) Hahahaha.

We're there Sunday only - can't miss the parade!!

Cheers and see you there!

Trailered it down, was passed by a white roadster with a Bring a Trailer license plate frame on the I280 who gave me a wave!

Simon: John and I are leaving tomorrow about 2:00 pm. We'll stop in Barstow for the night and then need to drop an engine for rebuild in Fullerton early Friday morning and then heading up north. We'll be staying at the Courtyard Marriot. We'll be parking in the corral.
