Default TROG, The Race of Gentleman, Pismo Beach, Ca, 10/15 & 16, 2016

Wondering who from Fordbarn may be planning to attend this?

This has been a big attraction here on the East Coast, Jersey Shores, for the last several years now, but will be a first for the West Coast this year. I'm thinking this show could become an even bigger deal on the West Coast because this is considered to be the birthplace of the type of Hot Rods this show normally attracts. Any other thoughts or opinions on this? http://theraceofgentlemen.com/

Cool! Did you get your ticket (s) on the website I mentioned above, or is there other/better sources for tickets?

No I have not yet John. Might be to late and if so, I just might bring this to putt around and get a feel of this for next year. Plus it still has a "A" motor but have a 38 flathead I am thinking about putting. Mark.

Being from the East, you always heard about Pismo beach on the other side in the 50's & 60's, Finally ended up there in 2011. it should be great venue for the race, although the beaches are not as nice as Cape Cod.

Good to hear that some Fordbarners are planning to attend. Hoping to see and meet some of you there. Just look for your typical East Coast Guy who appears to be lost in the crowd

I hate to sound like a,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,well,,, ,,,,,,,,,,,,a,,,,,,,,,Nerd?
But sounds like we need name tags or bright yellow speedos, or bright red flag on a stick so we can meet each other.

I'll be there.....

Waving the cars forward up to the starting line.

Thanks for posting and the support guys!!! If anyone has any questions about the event, let me know. I'll answer the best I can.

ZZLEGEND - That car looks great! Just an FYI - the race spots are all full. We can only run a limited number of cars so that each participant can make a few passes. There will be vintage parking out on the beach and you will be kicking yourself if you don't have your old tin to be cruising around town in. Can't wait to see it!

Will be there with my roadster. Obviously, #305. Plan to stop by Bakersfield for the EFV8 Club meet also. Maybe I can find a Detroit Lubricator carb. for the roadster at the swap meet there.
