The Fourth Annual All-GM Oktoberfest at the beautiful Silver Springs park in Ocala, Florida will be Saturday, October 3rd 2009. For those wanting to make a weekend out of it, Friday activities include a cruise from Ocala to Cedar Key Friday morning, a dyno day at NPD in the afternoon, plus NPD's 140-plus car collection will be open for viewing on Friday. The Don Garlits Museum of Drag Racing is about 10 miles south off I-75 if you need even more car stuff before heading home on Sunday.

The 3rd annual show saw 637 cars and trucks enter the park for a sunny Saturday with temps in the mid 80s. 35 cars joined us for the first-ever Friday cruise from Ocala to Cedar Key.

Just for some background, NPD has also held a Mustang and Fords show in January at Silver Springs, a nature theme park in Ocala, Florida, for the past 15 years. We've always experienced great turnouts for this show (close to 1,100 cars and trucks made an appearance in 2009 from over 1,500 pre-registered), and besides all the rides to check out there is the attraction of having other things to do besides check out the cars, such as glass-bottom boats to check out the natural springs, a kids petting zoo, and more. Check out www.silversprings.com for more on the park and all its attractions. We will also have a few select manufacturers in attendance to display their latest products and answer questions.

The first 500 cars to pre-register by a certain date (usually 1-2 weeks before the show date) will receive free entry into the park for car, driver and one passenger on Saturday. Any entry registering after that date, the day of show or beyond the 500-car threshold may purchase the show package for a reduced rate versus the normal park fee, and that still includes passes into the park for car, driver and one passenger on Saturday October 3rd. PLEASE NOTE: If you are planning to attend but not show a car, you'll be subject to the standard park entrance fees ($33.99/general, $24.99 for children ages 3-10 as of January 1st 2009).

Registration is available for all GM models early or late, as well as all GM-powered street rods and exotics. Everything from bone stock to highly modified is welcome!

The registration form will be up on our website, www.npdlink.com, shortly.

High Performance Pontiac, Super Chevy and Chevy High Performance will in attendance at this event as well.

Shoot me an e-mail at [email protected] if you have any questions. I'll be posting more details as they become available.

Okay, an update:

The details on the All-GM Oktoberfest Show:

The first 500 cars to pre-register by September 26th 2009 receive free entry into the park for car, driver and one passenger. Any entry registering after September 26th, the day of show or beyond the 500-car threshold may purchase the show package for $21.00 per car, which still includes passes for driver and one passenger. PLEASE NOTE: If you are planning to attend but not show a car, you'll be subject to the standard park entrance fee of $34.99/general, $24.99 for children ages 3-10.

Registration is available for all GM models early or late, as well as all GM-powered street rods and exotics.

Also, be aware that this show is held inside the Silver Springs park. “Coming and going” with your car during show hours is neither practical nor allowed. Registration closes at 10 AM sharp, and awards will be presented at 4 PM. Don’t be late, as you will not be permitted to enter the park with your car after 10 AM.

Friday activities:

We will host a cruise and dyno day for the second time at this year’s GM show. The cruise will leave NPD between 9:30-9:45 AM. Cars begin assembling at 8 AM. Please arrive at NPD’s parking-lot fueled-up, and ready to go. Upon our return to NPD from Cedar Key (we typically have lunch on the water at Cedar Key), the opportunity to tour/browse NPD’s extensive private car and truck collection will be available, and VMP Tuning will be on-hand with their mobile Dynojet chassis dyno. Participants can make two pulls with A/F ratio for $60. The highest pull will receive a goodie bag from NPD.

The registration form is on our website www.npdlink.com
Go to www.npdlink.com/modules.php?name=Silver_Springs and click the "Annual All GM" banner for a pdf version of the registration form.

Shoot me a PM if you have any questions!

I sent in my registration today. Only bad thing is i'm not taking a Nova. I'll be in my brothers 55 pickup.



There should be a couple of us from the St. Pete area there. No Nova's with them either.

A little over a week away, and we have over 850 pre-registered. If you want to get pre-registered, send me an e-mail or PM before Monday the 28th (but you can also register the day of the show for the same $21 price that gets car, driver and one passenger into the park).

I'll have my Nova at the show for the first time since 2006 and it's 2-year overhaul. Hope to see a bunch of X-body brothers there!
