Drumseven, bring your build album with you.  You got any snow down there?

It isn't enough to want a Lambo, you have to want to BUILD A CAR.

Door Prize: None scheduled at this time but we will see what can be had.  Stay tuned.  (I like to rib Chris the wrong way as he is so busy between work, family, forum, etc.)  Just attending and talking with "the guys" is amazingly informative and rewarding.  The ingenuity that each of us has put into our builds is awesome to see in person.

Oh how I hope I have something worth bringing and showing this year!
My interior is done, I have to do finish bodywork before primer and paint.
I would like to have my chassis with its drivetrain back in if not everything else finished.
I will be there anyway.  Jim has candy.

Dude,

Too bad, Chris.  The "door prize" this year is going to be a LP-670 body kit.  I wish the graduate the best, though.   ::thumbup ::thumbup ::thumbup

Door Prize? Please elaborate!!!!

I am trying to get mine together so I can have something to show, I have a LONG way to go but I think this might energize me to move forward a bit faster, but either way I am planning to have mine there.

So anyone else in the VA Beach area wanna tag along let me know

That's ok, I have a preference for the LP640 anyhow.  :D  I had a two week business trip in California that I had to cancel also and that one really hurt.

I'm sure there will be plenty of pictures to show everyone what we missed.  :'(

Daughters graduation this year around this time so I won't be attending this year.  I encourage anyone who hasn't been to one of these to attend at least one show.  There have been less Kit Cars attend given the recession impacts however they combined the show with the imports and you'll see everything from replicas to Ferrari's to Volvo's.  :D

Great opportunity to put faces with names, see some cool cars and even pick up parts.

It's that time of year to start thinking about the Nationals at Carlisle, PA. May 16-18.  There is a discount price if the $35 3-day pass is purchased.  This includes admission for two people & car for the three day event.  If I remember correctly, parking for your transport trailer etc. is extra.  Come out for a great time.  Meet fellow builders and do some bench building.  We all need support in our hobby.  "FREE" Lamboclone business cards!!  YES, that's right, FREE!!  and maybe some candy.  Friday is a good day but most of the crowd shows up on Saturday.   If you can only come for one day, make it Saturday.  See you there.  ::wave ::thumbup ::headbang
