I am going to be there as a 'spectator/dreamer/surrogate owner" ( my son owns the car.

How far is it from the park/Travelodge to the quality inn where the evening festivities will be held.
?
Don't yet know where I will be staying. May have to walk or UBER or whatever to get from one place to another.

Packing my trailer this weekend and heading south on the 18th for much goodness. I hope to "come on down" on the 22nd at The Price is Right, but just to see the taping will be fun. See you all in 2 weeks!

I will be there but after reading a bit moreI have a couple of questions.
I will not have a Corvair. I may have my wife! Will I be required to register?
Is the Friday night gathering at the same Quality Inn as is the Host hotel? Lastly, I think, will shirts be available for purchase @ the venue?
Thanks!

Less than 2 weeks till the 41st Great Western Fan Belt Toss & Swap Meet.

We still have RV spaces and vendor spaces but time is running out!

Buy your raffle tickets for Gift Certificate's from Clark's Corvair, Rafee Corvair, California Corvair. 3 different gift certificates total value of certificates is $2000.00

Winner need not be present at the Toss.

Tee shirts please pre-order. No second run.

Banquet tickets $35 each. We must cut off tickets 72 hours in advance. Meal is Italian and excellent! My better half is Sacilian, Anita approved this food after taste test.

Local teen service group will bus tables as a fundraiser for tips. So keep them in mind.
