I hope to make it with my '40. But it seems every time I fix something another thing breaks... But even if my '40 does not make it I will be there.

Would love to go but alas, no way the old legs could make it. Have fun.

Ken pictures of the event and your 40's would be great, If a little closer I would have tried to get down for that. We are all ready to get out to some shows/swaps this spring...hopefully.

If you run in to "Awesome BILL" by all means get some pic's

50% chance of rain on Saturday and 40% on Sunday in Dawsonville. That stinks.

I'll be there, but not planning to bring my '40 this year. Ran out of time to get it ready.

I was there a couple of times and enjoyed it. Had my 40 Conv. and they are 40 Ford crazy down there. They love 40 Fords and so do I. Surprise it not canceled this year. Moonshine will kill the virus.

I recommend the Georgia Apple Pie Moonshine from the Dawsonville Distillery. That one is my favorite

Gets smaller and smaller every year. Still fun but not like it used to be when all the 40's parked around the city square. I did pick up some Merc parts at the swap meet today though

The ‘39 and ‘40s (Moonshine cars) got covered parking this year. I thought that was pretty cool. My daughter took some pics. I’ll post them up when I get a chance.

Found a couple parts at the swap meet and saw some nice cars. I was really regretting not having my ‘40 there. It would have been the only one in Cloud Mist Grey. Next year hopefully.

trying to figure out how to resize pictures.
I did it thru photobucket, but it cropped too much of the pic.
