Since nobody has posted up above the show i figured i would might aswell start it up. Got my new motor in and most of the bugs fixed so i cant wait to put some miles on it! Should be a great weekend and coming up with a group of Canadians and staying at the Marriott. See everyone there!

I sent my money in last week, coming in on Sat. and leaving after the award show Sunday. Not sure if I want to take my Nitrous bottle out to get in the 93-97 Heavy modified section or leave it in and be in Super Street?

Keep it in the car and see how your competition stacks up then decide to take the bottle out LOL. Seen your car many times at the show and it shows top notch! My car will likely need be that mint!

Anyone still go out to Quakerstate just outside of Dayton on the Fridays night still? Awesome food and car memorabelia! I know over the years the number of birds coming out is getting smaller and i wasnt able to make last years show :(

Thanks, I've been there 4-5 times but never stayed for the award show but once that was when they had all the 93-2002 in the same class. I let my car looks go the last few years but still like it, Since its a vert it doesn't show well and I have a new top but never put it up at the show unless it rains, I'm sure that cost me major points but I just want to look around and meet other people and have all my trophies in boxes so getting one up there is not a big deal, not sure how I would even get it home cause I have a toneau cover I'm bringing, lol, I like the tipp city cruise-in and that's why I come up, Wasn't going to stay for Sunday but GF is coming this time for her first time so I thought I would make a nice trip for her and stay. I'll stop by and say hi.

If you can be at the Mcdonalds in Covington, KY by 9am sat morning, you can cruise up with my car club. We will be taking some backroads through Ohio to avoid the construction on I-75.

I had the same choice...said to heck with it and left it in. I dont have an OHIO tag so I wont win anything anyway. (OMG did I go there....YES I DID!!! LMAO)

We are about to leave headed up now, we should get there around lunch Friday.

One thing I didn't like this year was the condition of some of the cars mixed in with the show cars, peeling paint, damaged body panels/bumpers , etc. I noticed it mainly on the 3rd gen cars.

Anybody hear the total number of Birds? I only went Saturday, but used to go all 3 days from 1997 to 2005. On Sunday they used to announce how many Birds were in the show and from how many different states. Thanks!

Thanks it was fun hanging out with the big boys and heres some pics we took of super street and last is of our bay.We had a few people looking at and one comment that I thought was funny was "Its like a easter egg hunt I keep finding different things done" This was our first year (so close to Pontiac nats in Norwalk in which we race)but making plans to be back for next year!!!

Great time had by all! It was a great weekend untill we had to leave Monday morning and had nothing but problems all the way home back across the border. I guess you just cant have it that easy and win a trophy and not have to fix your car. We picked up a 1st place Heavy Modified 93-97 and my friend won 2nd place in Heavy Custom 93-97.

See you all next year and some of you in the Winners Circle!
