Default 2013 Florida “Barner’s Bash” Plans

2013 Florida “Barner’s Bash” Plans

For the 2013 Florida “Barner’s Bash” we’re thinking about taking things a little further south of Tampa. Here are a few examples of things we’d like to do; there is an Antique Automobile Museum in Sarasota (approximately 100 miles south of Tampa) also, for the ladies, St. Armands Circle in Sarasota provides excellent shopping as well as a bunch of restaurants to choose from. I’ll start checking hotels in the area for availability and see if I can get a discount rate.

Steve (Steve46) has made initial contact with the Ruskin Drive-In and they are receptive to having a “car show”, reserving a row(s) for us on either Friday or Saturday night.

In Ft. Myers (a little further south) there is the Henry Ford winter retreat across the street from Thomas Edison’s home. Both are museums and would make an interesting stop.

We are thinking about having the “Bash” in early to mid March, but before we firm up any dates, I'd appreciate some input from those of you that would like to attend to enable us to accommodate the maximum number of “Barner’s”. We're looking forward to another Florida "Barner's Bash"

Vic, Do you remember the privet collection near Dade City, I had some pictures of it about a year ago. The guy's name is Tom Small, he's a great guy, and a ford guy to boot. If you want I'll try to get his phone number. I'm down here till Thanksgiving, NO HURRICANES down here! Let me know Chuck S.

Chuck, That would be excellent. If you get a chance, give me a call, the guys are most likely going to be here tomorrow to play, hopefully you'll be able to make it over to my place before you go back up north. Vic

Vic, sent you a pm on this. I like the idea of going further south. If we decided to go near Punta Gorda we could stop in and 'harass' G.M. and Skip some about Flathead cooling technology advancements .

Hi John, Punta Gorda is a place I'd like to stop at as well. I'll give GM & Skip a call (once we have confirmed the event dates) to see if we can set something up.

So this Bash would not involve any outside shows like we have done in the past? Not complaining, just asking - I do like the venue so far ....

Hi Tom, there may be another "show" at the Drive-In, as there are several local area car clubs that might want to participate. However, at this time nothing in conjunction with any other events has been planned. I can guarantee you perfect topless cruising weather though… Vic

Tom, depending on the Bash dates, there may be an opportunity to take in Billetproof, before or after the Bash, for those who wish to attend that show. I have no idea when Billetproof is scheduled for 2013. Maybe Google would know?

To my knowledge, the dates for the 2013 Billetproof Florida show have not been published yet however, I do think it will be in March. Vic

Vic, Any chance of scheduling the 2013 Florida Barner's Bash in mid to late February?? We'll be in Florida until March 2. Bringing our 42 Ford Woodie down from Illinois. Really like the idea doing the Barner's Bash in southwest Florida! I believe quite a few of us snowbirds are heading home by early March?

If you actually get down to the Punta Gorda or Ft. Myers area there are 2 stops you may want to make:


Muscle Car City has a display (indoor) of over 100 cars - mostly muscle vintage so lots of GM chrysler as well as Mustangs and a few oldies

www.musclecarcity.net

Monday nights in North Ft. Myers (Rt 41 at Rt 78) Merchants Crossing has a "cruise in" usually attended by 100 or more cars. All vintages.

Tom,
Thanks for the heads up. When we were down last year, we attended a cruise in at Muscle Car City one weekend and a swap meet another weekend with our 65 Impala Station Wagon which we drove down from Illinois. I sold the Chevy Wagon when we got home, so now we only have Fords! Coming down in mid December and plan to go Muscle Car City events and to the Merchants Crossing cruise ins on a regular basis. Trailering the 42 Woodie down, since we just have too much to haul down from home. Will hopefully see you there?
Steve

Steve, we haven't really started to get serious about the dates just yet... February sounds good to me and I want to accommodate as many "Barner's" as possible so we get the best turnout... I'll start getting serious about selecting the dates in a week or so. Vic

I'm in for mid to late February. Hopefully more of us 'Barner' snowbirds will chime in with their Florida schedules.

Vic, Another Meet going on around that time is the AACA Meet in Lakeland on February 21-23, 2013. Might be something that some of the 'Barners might be interested in. Also the Zephyrhills Show is usually around that time also. We'll be Florida January thru March...so any of the dates should work for us. Thanks, Pat

Just checked....The Zephyrhills Show/Auction/Swap Meet is February 21-24, 2013.

Pat, I'm aware of the other events going on in that time frame. The AACA Meet would be an excellent choice, Zephyrhills, on the other hand, has not provided very good hunting for Flathead pats in recent years. They do however have vintage dirt track racing as well as an auction but parking is poor. In the past we've always tied our event to another automotive related event and that has worked well however, in an attempt to expand our event, I thought it might be a nice change to do some touring in Sarasota, Ft. Myers and the surrounding area as there are automotive related venues to be enjoyed. As always, we’ll try to accommodate the wishes of the majority of attendees’, in scheduling the locations. Vic

Ok, we've narrowed it down to possibly two different weekend dates (the last weekend in February or the first weekend in March) however, we are waiting for conformation from the Drive-In as to their preferable date. We have also decided to schedule the "Bash" away from other events taking place in February & March in central Florida, to enable us to focus on and possibly expand our activities.

We are still in the early stages of setting things up so; we're open to suggestions from those of you that would plan to attend. I have it on good authority that Bill Wzorek may once again create one of his masterpieces’ for the "Miss Shelly Award", and we’re working on a few other venues of interest to visit. Let us know your thoughts and ideas, to make the 2013 Florida "Barner's Bash" the best one yet.

I've been to Tom's place and it is a must see! He is a great guy, and has unimaginable amount of v8 Fords ,signage and even some Chevys to fill in the empty spaces.
You could go there ten times and not see it all.

Chuck, where is Tom located? I have been working on scheduling this years "Bash" a little further south of Tampa and logistically it might not be possible to include (if Tom was up for it) a visit to see his collection. Also, the Billetproof show is on the 23rd of February at Don Garlits Museum in Ocala and, as I said in an earlier post, I'm trying to schedule the "Barner's Bash" away from other events for several reasons, not the least of which is; in the past, we've held it in conjunction with Billetproof, Zephyrhills, etc. so, this time I wanted to offer up some different venues and opportunities that would include some driving excursions. However, if the majority of people planning to attend the 2013 Florida "Barner's Bash" would prefer to do the same thing (Billetproof) this year, we can still change the plans; I'll just need to know the consensus as soon as possible. I'll make the "cut off" date (for making changes) December 15th. So, if anyone that is planning to attend would like to go to Billetproof again, let me know. Vic

Vic if you get down to Punta Gorda I will supply lunch or dinner at my place for all on the tour. Ken has the key to the "Gated Community" with a few motor home hook ups. I have enough room for 15 or 20 motor homes without hook ups also. You need to get dates nailed down soon so over night rooms can be reserved. They become hard to find in any resort areas in the winter season. G.M.

Hi George, thanks for the offer, we'll have to talk about possibly a Saturday afternoon and/or evening at your place. The dates are now "set in stone", they are March 22nd - 24th. I know that Billetproof is on the 23rd at Don Garlits but, we've included that event twice, and I thought it would be nice to see other sights of automotive interest in Florida this time.

We are still working out details for the Friday cruise to Sarasota, the antique auto museum and the Drive-In as well as the Saturday cruise to Ft. Myers to tour the Ford-Edison Estates and back to Punta Gorda to your place (thanks again). We may also try to have our traditional BBQ on Sunday at Fred Howard Park in Tarpon Springs. If all of this comes together it will include a lot of cruising in our Flatheads and, after all, that’s what it should be all about.

Vic,
Here is a link on mapquest that shows the area of Tom's place. He is on Parrish rd., off from Blanton rd., north west of Dade City. I don't have his phone number up here (NY), but I'll be coming back down after Xmas. He is a very nice guy with a ton of rare Fords. Lets get him on the list, Chuck S.

Sounds like a plan Chuck. He's a little North of where we were planning to be but hopefully we'll be able to include a stop at his place if he's willing.

Might not be able to make it to this one - I've got to see what's coming up on next years calendar as I'm thinking of making a run to Bonneville in the roadster. We will make a few stops inbetween and probably take 2-3 weeks when all is said and done ....

Sure - we can hook up at some point (maybe at your Mom's?) and run out from there. If you think I'm kidding, I'm not!! Be prepared for stops at Speedway, Daryl Starbird's museum, Fordbarn and HAMB folks, and other places of interest along the route .....

Tom, after going to Bonneville last August I am wanting to go back again. I loved being out on that salt with all those race cars. Four of us had a blast out there together. I am also thinking I would like to drive one of my cars out the next time I go. Won't be 2013 but possibly 2014. I talked to the Rolling Bones crew about possibly joining in with them somewhere along their route and they were receptive to that possibility. Who knows, maybe just another wild dream of mine, but then who really knows, just may happen.

Vic, your March date sounds like a go for me. The February date was a big question mark since we have a family trip to Orlando planned just before that date. Keep the plans rolling....lunch or dinner with George sounds good. It's always interesting to get up to date on what innovations he has going to make these Early V8's more drivable.

I talked to the Rolling Bones crew about possibly joining in with them somewhere along their route and they were receptive to that possibility. Who knows, maybe just another wild dream of mine, but then who really knows, just may happen.

A buddy of mine went with the Bones crew last year and he had a tough time keeping up with them and he was in a 32 Ford street rod - 85+ was the norm at certain points in the trip. Although he stopped at night at their same stays, he arrived (at times) usually an hour or more later than they did. After while he just ran at his own pace and enjoyed it alot more. Nothing says that that's a bad thing, just not what I would want to do.

To me, it's all about the ride and meeting folks from the 'Barn, HAMB and others, seeing the sites, cruising some portion of old Rt 66, and visiting a few car museums/private collections/Speedway Motors type vendors along the way - that's my kind of trip to Bonneville, the holy grail of hot rodding. I would probably devote a week to getting there and a week for the return (probably with one day built in each way for unscheduled "repair" stops), more or less a 20 day trip total. My present plan is to go in my roadster (avatar) but perhaps if my 40 p-up is done (non-flathead powered - sorry ), I might go in it.

We can talk more about this whenever you'd like John, and anyone else who might be interested. How about a 'Barner's Bonneville Run event - sound like a possibility?

And for those of you who are purists, I know little (in comparison to most) about Bonneville and its history but what I do know is that way back when, many, many guys brought out their bone stock rides, removed a few things, taped up others, and made a pass. I doubt my roadster would make it through safety but making a pass in any ride would be sweet!

A 2013"Barner's Bash" Update

Bill Wzorek has been working on tying the “Miss Shelly Award” to a charitable organization that will take donations from "Barner's" who want to support it. Bill is in the final stages of the negotiations and we'll let everyone know all the details as soon as everything is confirmed.

We are also looking into having a (limited number) of Commemorative Dash Plaques made. The plaques will be available to everyone (you don’t have to attend the 2013 “Barner’s Bash”) for a small fee. A portion of the fee will go to cover the cost, while the balance will be donated to the selected charity.

Stay tuned for further updates, and have a safe and Happy Holiday.

Dennis, we have been putting the event together and waiting for conformation from various venues before we post the actual itinerary however, the initial plan is to have the majority of events take place in the Sarasota and Ft. Myers area. As things are confirmed, I'll post them. If you need any additional information you can PM or email me at vicpiano@mizlou.tv. Hope you can join us for the Bash. Vic

Here is a sample of the proposed 2013 Florida "Barner's Bash" Dash Plaque. We will have a limited number of the magnetic Dash Plaques produced, most likely in an approximate 3X4 inch size. You don't have to attend the event to get a Dash Plaque, they will be made available to everyone for $5.00 each. A portion of each sale will be donated to the charity. If you wish to make a larger donation, you can do that as well. We'll be posting payment information as soon as it is confirmed.

As is the usual case, Bill Wzorek has outdone himself yet again with this years (2013) "Miss Shelly Award". In addition to the actual award (and only Bill knows what it will be), he has set up an opportunity for each of us (if we so choose) to make a donation in the name of the "Miss Shelly Award" to the Susan G. Komen foundation for breast cancer research to fine the cure. Click on the link below if you would like to donate or to fine out more information.

www.info-komen.org/goto/MissShellyAward2013

This adds another dimension to the Florida "Barner's Bash" and I hope it becomes a regular feature of the event as well as other "Barner's Bash" events in the future.

We hope you'll join us for the fun from March 22nd to 24th. And please consider making a donation.

Happy New Year.

The short answer is yes, we're working on that. I had posted previously that we were going to look at having T-shirts made however, in order to keep the cost (per shirt) down; we need to place a minimum order. We received a number of request for the T's however, not enough to enable us to sell the shirts at a reasonable cost (around $15 to $20. each). We will have dash plaques (rubberized magnetic) made (minimum order 100) and we will be making them available at $5.00 each plus postage. The dash plaques cost around $1.85 each. The $5.00 will cover the cost and the balance will go to the Susan G. Komen foundation for breast cancer research charity.
At this time I'll take T-Shirt request (orders) again to see if we can meet and/or surpass the minimum requirement. Send me an email at: vicpiano@mizlou.tv if you would like to be put on the list.

I forgot to mention, we'll also take request for the dash plaques. Not sure yet as to how we're going to set up payment for the T's or the plaques but we'll let you know as soon as we figure it out.

Can I come anyway?

Ok, I admit it, I don't have a flathead. I got my 36 5 window in 2006 (from a liar) in Mass. That was long before I discovered Fordbarn (joined in 2010) so I did a lot of things I now regret. Like building a hotrod instead of a restoration. Mea Culpa! But, I least I put a Ford motor (302) in it not some junky bow-tie small block.

Had I known the wealth of information and parts available I'd have gone the restoration route. What I have now is an all steel Henry body on top of my home built frame and Mustang II front end. When I die, somebody can plop the body back on an original frame and running gear. I'd do it now but I'm not in that financial position.

So, can I come to the "Bash" anyway and ogle/drool over the real ones?

They let Lee (my wife ) & I go and we show up with her Rice burner.
It's for the love of the hobbie / Friends that this is growing at the rate that it is.
Last year @ the BBQ I pulled my wifes car in line Popped the hood to show what I had.
Some how there was no interest ( GO FIGURE )

Tom, you are most welcome (and we'd love to see the '36) Like Bill said, the Florida "Barner's Bash" is all about enjoying the hobby and meeting new people with the same passion. There will be Flathead powered originals, hot rods, etc. at the event. There will also be modified Flathead era FoMoCo products and even the occasional Rice Rocket… The objective is to have fun related to our cars/trucks. We’re looking forward to meeting you in March. Keep checking here for updates on the event. Vic

This Just In


Steve (Steve's '46) has secured hotel accommodations for the 2013 Florida "Barner's Bash". Here's the information:

Sleep Inn
900 University Parkway
Sarasota, FL 34234
941) 359-8558
http://www.sleepinn.com/hotel-sarasota-florida-FL536

All you need to do (when making your reservation), is mention the Cigar City Flatheads and the room rate will be $115 plus tax per night. The hotel is in an excellent location, just minutes away from the "Cars of Yesteryear" Museum. I would highly recommend folks start making their reservations soon! The one catch is that, in the event anyone has to cancel a reservation, they must do so 2 weeks prior, to avoid any charges.

With regard to driving distance to the Ruskin Drive-In, it's about 32 miles north on US 41 so that should make for a fairly easy trip from the hotel.

OK, it's Official, the 2013 Florida "Barner's Bash" Dash Plaques have been ordered and should be delivered to us in short order. And, speaking of short orders... we only purchased a total of 100 of the Dash Plaques so... if you want one (and you're not going to be able to attend the event), you can buy them for $5.00 each plus $1.00 for S&H for a total of $6.00. (a portion of the $6.00 will cover the cost of the plaque(s) and shipping while the remainder will be donated to the charity). We have opted not to go the route of opening a specific bank account so; you'll just have to trust me with your $6.00. You can send a check for $6.00 (for each plaque, limit two per person), made payable to Vic Piano at; 18501 Council Crest Dr., Odessa, FL 33556.



Why not be the first kid on your block to display the plaque on your Flathead's dash?

Order yours today!

Tom, that 1/4 inch reel to reel brings back memories... That's when we used to edit audio with a razor blade and scotch tape... Glad you enjoy my postings.

Chuck, you know I wouldn't do that for just anybody... But for you... OK. Looking forward to seeing you in the Sunshine State. As for the T-Shirts, I still don't have enough interest to be able to keep the cost per shirt down around $20.00. If more people express a real interest, I'll place an order for the T-Shirts and let everyone know.

Dash Plaques are in
I got home last night (from a business trip) and found a box filled with the 2013 Florida "Barner's Bash" Dash Plaques along with a special gift for me... (see the photos)



I know Bill Wzorek had everything to do with that. Thanks Bill for all you continue to do for the Florida "Barner's Bash" and the "Miss Shelly Award".

I’ll be sending Dash Plaques, to all that have ordered them, in the next day or two. Dash Plaques are still available so, if you would like one (or two), send your check made payable to Vic Piano, to 18501 Council Crest Dr., Odessa, FL 33556. Don’t forget to include your mailing address.

I received another mail box full of orders for the Cigar City Flatheads Florida "Barner's Bash" Dash Plaques today... Just about half the Dash Plaques we ordered are gone already... So, if you like one (or two), you've got to act fast! Send your check for $6.00 or $12.00 made payable to Vic Piano to 18501 Council Crest Dr., Odessa, FL 33556. I've got a pile of orders that I'll be sending out this weekend. Thanks to everyone for your support, we appreciate it. Vic

As in years past, we have asked for (and received) donations of parts and/or services from FordBarner's, to use as raffle prizes at the Florida "Barner's Bash" BBQ. I want to again thank those that have contributed and brazenly ask again for contributions for the 2013 event. If you would like to participate, please PM or email me at: vicpiano@mizlou.tv. Thanks, Vic

For those of you that will be attending the Florida "Barner's Bash", here is an up-date. The possibility of an impromptu meeting on Thursday evening at the hotel has been suggested. If you are planning to arrive the evening of Thursday, the 21st, let us know. We’re looking forward to seeing everyone. Vic

T-Shirt Request

We've still got in the neighborhood of thirty (30) Dash Plaques available and now, I'm starting to get inquiries about the proposed Cigar City Flatheads T-Shirts. Previously we received a dozen or so request however, as I've mentioned in other post, we have to order a minimum number of T-Shirts and the up front (out of pocket) cost is $300.00+ so, I don't want to commit money until we have sufficient orders (cash in hand).

Here is what I suggest; at the minimum order number, the price for the T-Shirts can be set at right around $20.00. That price includes packaging & shipping. If you would like one or more T-Shirts, send a check in the appropriate amount, made payable to Vic Piano, 18501 Council Crest Dr., Odessa, FL 33556. We will hold all the checks until we have sufficient orders to have the T-Shirts made. Don't forget to include the T-Shirt size(s) you want as well as your return address.

The T-Shirts will have a large Cigar City Flatheads logo on the back and a small logo on the left front. All T-Shirts are white, as in "you can have any color you want, as long as its white"...

We're Gettin' Close


... to the 2013 Florida "Barner's Bash" so I'd like some input from those who are planning on attending. If you've been to a "Barner's Bash" before, you know about our Sunday BBQ at Fred Howard Park in Tarpon Springs, FL. This year we are holding the Friday & Saturday events in Sarasota, Ruskin and Ft. Myers. Fred Howard Park is a little over 100 miles from the host hotel in Sarasota so, before we book a pavilion at the park and figure out how much food we'll need, I want a consensus.

If we don’t get enough votes (so to speak) we'll have to come up with Plan "B"...

Please let us know what you'd like to do by posting here or sending me a PM or an email to: vicpiano@mizlou.tv. As always, thanks for your support, we're looking forward to seeing you in the sunshine state.

If you haven't participated before, and would like to contribute, please let me know via a PM or email to: vicpiano@mizlou.tv. Thanks, we appreciate your support. Vic

Sure would be helpful to have an itinerary, like:

Friday March 22 breakfast at Joe blows, 123 main st, Redon, fl
lunch..................
2:00 at XYZ museum
5:00 cruise to Tampa, meet at billy bobs 12 nostreet
overnight at ................
Saturday etc, etc, etc
Sunday etc, etc

I'm gonna' be there I just don't know which venue(s)

That would hep us all plan on when and where we can actually make it to and then we can let you have a real "roll call"

Tom, I'm looking forward to meeting you. I've posted the itinerary a number of times but I'll be happy to do it again for those who might have missed it;

Thursday, March 21st, check in at the hotel, we may arrange an impromptu diner (restaurant to be announced) on Thursday evening.

Sleep Inn
900 University Parkway
Sarasota, FL 34234
941) 359-8558
http://www.sleepinn.com/hotel-sarasota-florida-FL536

All you need to do (when making your reservation), is mention the Cigar City Flatheads and the room rate will be $115 plus tax per night. The hotel is in an excellent location, just minutes away from the "Cars of Yesteryear" Museum. I would highly recommend folks start making their reservations soon! The one catch is that, in the event anyone has to cancel a reservation, they must do so 2 weeks prior, to avoid any charges.


Friday. March 22nd, 9:00am Meet at hotel lobby and go for breakfast (restaurant to be announced). After breakfast we’ll cruise over to the "Cars of Yesteryear" Museum in Sarasota. We can get a group rate of $7.50 per person if there are 10 or more people in the group. For lunch we’ll cruise to St. Armands Circle in Sarasota for lunch at the Columbia restaurant and, if you’re so inclined, do some window shopping and people watching…! Sarasota provides excellent shopping as well as a bunch of restaurants to choose from.

Friday evening we cruise to the Ruskin Drive-In, it's about 32 miles north on US 41, a fairly easy trip from the hotel. Another option for Friday night is to attend the Friday night cruise-in at the Dairy Queen in Riverview.

Saturday, March23rd, Meet at hotel at 8:00am, go to breakfast and cruise down to Ft. Myers to tour the Henry Ford & Thomas Edison “winter estates”. On the return trip to Sarasota we may stop in Punta Gorda to visit with G.M. & “Skip” Haney (I’ll try to confirm that with George this week, but we do need a head count to give them an idea as to how many of us there will be in our group.)

Saturday evening, return to hotel…

Sunday, March 24th, 8:00am (check out of hotel) Meet at hotel lobby and go for breakfast. After breakfast cruise north to Tarpon Springs (Fred Howard Park) for our traditional Florida “Barner’s Bash” BBQ, etc.

This is our proposed itinerary for the 2013 Florida “Barner’s Bash”. We still have some “Dash Plaques” available at $6.00 each and we are looking for donations of parts and/or services to give away in the raffle on Sunday. If you would like to donate to the raffle please PM or email me at vicpiano@mizlou.tv.

One more time! I need to establish a "head count" to be able to effectively arrange several of the events we have planed for this years "Barner's Bash", not the least of which is the Sunday BBQ at Fred Howard Park in Tarpon Springs. At this point I don't know if we'll be able to get the preferred pavilion as in past years. I also need to have an idea of how many of you will be going to Ft. Myers with us before I can talk to GM about stopping to visit with him and Skip on the way back from Ft. Myers. So, please respond here or via a PM or email to: vicpiano@mizlou.tv Thanks. Vic

P.S. I'd also like to know how many of you will be checking in to the hotel Thursday evening as we would like to have dinner with everyone.

Judy and I will meet up with you at the Henry Ford place in Ft. Myers. If the Punta Gorda visit does NOT work out - then your all invited to stop at my place in North Fort Myers and I'll cook out burgers and dogs for lunch or later if you want to make it dinner. If Punta Gorda does work out I'll be there! I will need an address.

Weekend parking at the Henry Ford place can get very crowded. There's a huge parking lot just before the museum If you want to all meet there.

I've requested warm temps and sunshine for the weekend but there is a 30 to 40% chance of some liquid sunshine... I've decided to drive the '51 F-1 because, I know if I take a Convertible it will rain. See you Friday

Sorry I'm going to miss this one this year - hopefully next year and maybe, just maybe, I can stay a bit longer and join the boys in Vic's garage and have some pizza on a Sat garage fun day - oh yeah, and fix a few old cars as well!

Fort Myers is a neat place to see, plus after the tour you can motor over to Sanibel and enjoy the fantastic beaches, and eateries.

Looks like I'll be a "no show" for this years Bash in Florida. I hate missing out on all the fun! Maybe I will make the Moonshine Festival in Dawsonville, GA this October and meet up with the Cigar City Flathead's there.

On the way. In Danbury CT for the night. Didn't beat the storm. We will see what the morning brings. The last 20 miles were more of a pinched ass ride instead of white knuckles. Can't wait to get to the sunshine state. Vic, you better have the heat on.

Hey Chuck, 41ford1, great to see you and Karen are on the road. Looking forward to meeting on Wednesday. Looks like the low on Tuesday will be 28 so you will have to get further south before you get any relief.

I'm bummed. Was hoping to see you down here.

Hey Denise, I didn't know you were planning to attend. Are you on a business trip in that area or are you driving one of your cars down? Sorry to miss you! I looked for you at the Jalopy Showdown last year but you were nowhere to be found .

Chuck, the heat is on... Should be in the mid 70's when you get here. There is a slight chance of some liquid sunshine but that's always a possibility.

Hey Vic, do you have a place to meet up for breakfast yet? I'll be diving down on Friday and don't know how the fog and traffic will be. I plan on meeting up at the motel, but if I don't make it, the restrant would be good to know. Thanks Chuck S.

Hi Chuck, the short answer is no... I don't know the area and Steve (Steve's '46) had been looking for a place. PM me if you don't have my cell phone # and I'll give it to you so we can communicate on Friday morning. See you in Sarasota. Vic

I am not too familiar with the area as well however when I was getting the hotel established, I did notice there was an IHOP located a couple of miles south of the hotel. The address is 1199 N Washington Blvd. Steve

John, as of now, the revised plan is for everyone to meet at my house/garage at around 10:00am on Sunday the 24th. We will hang out for a bit (maybe we’ll announce the winner of the "Miss Shelly" award) after that we'll cruise over to Lake Tarpon and have lunch, possibly at the Tarpon Turtle. I did not reserve the pavilion at Fred Howard Park (as in years past), for several reasons, not the least of which was a very limited response from my numerous requests for a "head count". Anyway, that's the plan.

Liquid sunshine is good!! The Courier needs a real good rinse after the brine and salt road treatment it's seen in the last couple of days. Hope to give it abath before getting to the train. See you definitely Friday if not Thursday evening.

Hey Chuck, Maybe we can do the bath at Dad's place on Wednesday morning. We've got all it would take to get 'er cleaned up and it's about fifteen minutes from your hotel!

I have your cell#, if I get lost in the fog, traffic, or road rage drivers, I'll give you a shout. If I totally miss you the next stop is at GM's? Wish me luck Chuck S.
