Planning for the Spring/Summer Shows

By GoldenGirl

I love the new year! It means that winter has peaked and even though it will still hang around for a few months, the days are getting longer minute by minute. NASCAR and NHRA in just five weeks!

We're starting to plan out the schedule of car shows we'll go to this year. This is the first year we'll go to the Mecum Muscle Car Auction in Florida, January 22-24th. Sometimes in January we go to the DC Auto Show. Then in February we usually go to SC to celebrate the return of NASCAR and watch the Daytona race with our family in the warm temps there. (Yeah, we're just that car crazy, it's a family party event.) In March there's Mopars at the Rock (Rockingham NC) but we may pick something else this year. April is the Charlotte Auto Fair. Don't have anything planned for May yet but it will probably be down south somewhere. June starts the Carlisle shows in PA. In between all of these we go to various drag races too.

I usually pick all Mopar shows but we went to a Super Chevy show last year in Richmond that was great. The Myrtle Beach Rod Runs are a blast, too.

I'll keep checking out the Motortopia events list to see what everyone else is doing. Maybe I'll find some other awesome shows to go to this year. What's on your schedule?

The Car Show Schedule for Eastern Ontario is compiled at a Feb All- Club Meeting and published in April around this part of the world. We start planning which ones to attend in May!
Must be nice to live in a "warmer" climate!

Hi Cindy
Sounds like you are way ahead when it comes to planning. Mary and I are planning a trip to Calif. to see Jerry Jr.s new house soon. Oh, Christi is at home and doing ok. It will take some time but she is doing better every day.
I bought a used tire changer off Ebay and Jerry Jr. Picked it up for me this evening. I will have to buy a couple parts for it but I,m very happy with the purchase. It is pretty old and neat. Here is a link if you would care to take a look at it this is the Ebay item number if you just go to ebay and put the number in the search it should come up: 330294520914
Not much else planned for now.
