Hey Howard, I think I want to hit this show but I am not registered. Will this be a problem? If not I will cruise down with you.

I don't remember if they allowed it last time or not. I am thinking so but here is the link for the show: http://www.greenwood-phinney.com/pages/special_events/carshow.asp . They have contact info on that page. I still have not gotten anything back from them myself, but my check has cleared so I need to get a hold of them myself.

OK, Doug. Here is what I found out. You can register at the event. They start placing at 6:30am but they will put us in 3 lines based on last name and whether or not we are preregistered. After we go through the line we can park together as a group.

It sounds like they are doing things a little different from previous years. I know that when I got there in the past by 6 the cars were lined up half way to the U district and once I got through registration I had to park out in BFE to get a spot by myself because the local (Greenwood-Phinney neighborhood) club cars all get in there the night before and just stay there.

Let me know if you want to meet up and we can go in together. It is a big show (very similar to Colby only without the cruise) and it looks like it will be nice weather for it this year.

So does this mean you want to meet up? We can meet at my place and I can have some coffee ready. Just let me know so I can bring home some of the good stuff from work tomorrow.

Howard, If I get home early enough to get the car washed I will be at your house in the morning. Post up your address for me. I think I remember but want to be sure.

Today an all electric ricer that apparently runs 12's will be there. Someone at husbands work knew the guy so he stopped by with it - knowing gov't workers would rather be driving alt sources but its RICE!

which means I'd like a picture of it... ;)

Figured as much Doug but I didn't want to make any assumptions.

Does this mean we can now use it to take cold water and snacks for the dog to the park in it? :lol:

Yeah, I spent most of the day down at Doug's car (after I found him). They had me parked all the way at the end by 90th and Doug was clear on the other end. I did not realize how big the show was until I went back to my car at 3 and felt like I was walking half way to Ballard.

I saw the other SS. Dude needs to clean that thing up a bit. Not just dirt but making the engine bay a bit more tidy. Not knocking him or his ride, it looked tough; but it just needed some attention to details ... which just comes after time. But if you are going to put the kind of coin into a car like that why not do it up right?

My goal is to post pictures up before the end of the weekend. I have had a long day and I have a bit more to do before I go to bed for the next show tomorrow.
