Thats a good thing you got going there. That show has a good turn out. Been there a few times and not too many novers there so this should be good. Plus the GRD. up store is open at the time of the show..

Crappy store front, nice stuff though. I wish they had more of a "show room" kinda deal, more stuff to touch! I got my disk brake conversion kit from them, and some other things as well.
--Last time I was there a guy has just bought a hood for his Chevelle, and was trying to get it home on his Camry. That was pretty amusing.

They will have the trailer set up at the CSRA swap meet at Lake Compounce May 3. A lot more hands on stuff there.

I met these guys at the Charlotte show this weekend, didn't even realize that they existed. Right now July 12th looks good for me, hopefully I'll have my car at least running at that point. It's really not a looker right now, but that takes time, and I don't have that right now!

A non looker Nova beats a ricer any day!

Nice !!!

Really looking forward to this !! I would have to agree the showroom is a joke but they usually have what you want or can get it quick and they are priced much better then most and willing to deal sometimes which is cool I visit there way to often (moneywise)but do enjoy it!! And for those of you who don't live in the area or have not been around that area there is some good chow for lunch around the area including the Hooters that was on the list.:cool:

I am going to try to get there, have to put in a 700R4. There is no way I am going to listen to a powerglide groan like a tin windup car for 4 hours. :no:

Well good news!

Just about got the engine and the tranny back in the nova on Sunday since I was off from work. I have the next couple of Sundays off too so looks like the car might be back together for the show.

Let us know about a time and do we need to pre-register for the show?
