Planning to be there with this one
Wow -- nice. Is that a Monte Carlo SS?
LOL! Yep only one with the W30 option ever built!
I won't be able to make it. Finally getting to do a celebration of life for my Father in Illinois. He passed away in March after he turned 95. If your want the prop adapter and all the grade 8 bolts let me know. I'll try to get them there for you. I'm also having some health issues, so I haven't got the car street ready, YET. It's only about 15 miles from my house.
First some answers to questions, and then some questions...
Fernando, we're staying at the Comfort Inn, Lakeland North. 3520 North Highway 98, Lakeland, Fl, 33809. Steve, aka Briz, is staying there too.
Cliff, I will pass on your information to my son, Alex. He's the one wanting airboat parts.
Mike, So sorry to hear about your Father passing. 95 years old, WOW!!! I will pass on your information to my son, Alex
QUESTIONS... A few of you said you'd like to go out to dinner after the show. I'm all for that! If I could get a rough head count, (we're bringing 7 people), I'd be happy to call some restaurants in the area to see if they can accommodate us. I know a lot of restaurants don't want a bunch of people sitting together. So if you're planning on going to dinner afterwards give a shout and a head count and I'll do the leg work. Can't wait to see you all!
Looking forward to meeting you, Darren! We never did get to meet up at Bowling Green a couple of years ago.
There's alot of places to eat around I-4 and 98. Longhorns,Hooters,etc. Wish I could make it.
Have you ever been to Smokin Joes BBQ. They got really good reviews on yelp and they're right in Auburndale.
No. There was a place called People's BBQ that was good. I don't get to Auburndale that much.
John that should be about 3 of us, counting my Olds friend and his wife. Mine is not aloud in my car she makes too big of a mess......lol
Im down wit that
Sounds good Steve. That gets us up to 10 right now. Hector? Ft. Lauderdale Steve? Docgsx? Cliff? Anyone else???
I’m not gonna commit to dinner at this point. We will be driving over from Sarasota. I’ll have my daughter with me and we don’t plan to stay the night. Looking forward to hanging out with you guys and putting some faces with the names!
I am not willing to go to restaurants.
Thanks for the reply Ft. Lauderdale Steve!
The BBQ place I was mentioning is: Peebles BBQ, open Thursday, Friday, Saturday 11 am to 9 pm. You might want to check them out.
Put me down for 2 people.
Got you Phil
I called Peebles BBQ, as Mike had suggested, yesterday. Their website said they're open, but when I talked to them they said take out only.
Next I called Smokey Joes BBQ. Their website says they have outside seating. Talked with a nice young lady that said she'd have the manager call me at 7PM when they slowed down. He didn't call me.
I'll call both of them back Tuesday when they open. Both have real good ratings. My question for them...
Peebles... can we get take out and eat in the parking lot?
Smokin Joes... can we reserve their outside tables so we're all together.
If you have any thoughts feel free to express them, otherwise I'll proceed as stated. Have a GREAT Sunday!!! I'm getting ready to go to a little car show.
If ya get enough people why not have it catered at the hotel? I'll chip in. Already booked a second night so I'll be there. The hotel has a big lobby, a breakfast dining area and huge parking lot where the cars could be grouped together.
That is an idea Steve. I will look into it.
