    Dan,

    If you are referring to the Meeker days festival that is held at the same place, yes it is still going on. The show moved because the festival moved, hoping to get a little better weather and not conflict with Father's Day weekend. See you there!

    Chris,
    Is it going to be in the same parking lot as last year?

    Sergeant Major, we'll be in the same location. The Meeker Days Festival people seem to re-configure the layout every year, so I understand that there will be a few changes regarding the streets and lots that we actually park in.

    I can't wait to see your Wildcat!

    I was there in the monsoon :pray: last year with the Cat, parked next to Roy`s. The 1st time the Cat has been in the rain for 30 years and it only got a little water in the trunk, the only bad thing was the yahoo who changed the windshield didnt get the wipers on correct and now I got a scratch in the windshield as I use them seldom. So I better get there early. And I hope to see a lot of 63-64 full size models to swap stories with.
    By the way there will be a lot of booths selling everything from soup to nuts, so if you have a wife like mine that doesnt know a skylark from a honda there is something for them to do.
    I`d like to meet some of you folks I have seen on the board and swap BS stories
    Til the 21st

    I have money set a side for this so as of right now I am planning on being there, since the weather is suppose to be nice. But if it changes day of show, I may not be there.

    Now are we parking in one location or is it spread all over?

    I had a tri-tone paint job last year (paint, primer, and rust) on my Cat. There was also someone that had a Special? that had a nicely crumpled front quarter panel. So bring it!!

    The show is not at all spread all over. The Buicks are all right together, and, if the weather's nice, we expect as many as 175 Buicks. Obviously, we cover a bit of real estate with that many cars, but the layout keeps all of us quite close to one another.

    Because of the Meeker Days Festival, I recommend accessing downtown Puyallup via the Pioneer Ave. exit from Highway 512.

    For those traveling north on Interstate 5 to attend the show, take exit 127, then go east on Highway 512 to Puyallup. After several miles on 512, you will see a sign stating "Puyallup, next 4 exits". The third exit is the Pioneer Ave. exit.

    At the exit, go west on Pioneer right into the heart of downtown Puyallup. You'll turn right on 3rd Ave., then take the first left. There will be signage at 3rd to direct you to the show.

    Unfortunately, due to a family issue that has come up, I won't be able to attend Pyallup this year with the Electra... while I was there last year as a spectator, I was looking forward to being there with a car this year! Oh well, there's always next year! Hope you guys have a great day!
