I will take plenty of pictures but most of my time will be spent in the swap meet area. I bought a new utility trailer so I can bring back parts.

Frosty -- hopefully Coy and Mike from West Virginia is there if he can keep the TH400 in the car this time.

I'd love to catch up with those good ol' boys. Of course, like Pro hints, I won't hold my breath. I am stilling waiting for GE to catch up with me when I am in WV !!!

With a new trailer, sounds like we need to make another run to NPD soon. We should start mapping out our winter/spring swap meet sessions too. In a few more weeks, I hope to be well enough to start wrenching again.

Perhaps Pro can come back down in June and we can really cruise Woodard. Of course we also need to map out any August Woodward Dream Cruise plans by spring.

Already booked off august for Woodward and Jenn is trying to figure out what to bring this year for the buffet. We should be back from Nashville the 16th or 17th if you wanted to do an NPD run/BS session/beer we can on the following weekend. I should have the Vibe back by then to make the NPD run worth my while.

Pro -- I was betting with Mike's Chevelle that the 10 bolt would have blown by now.

Frosty -- I promise if I ever finish this damn thing my next project will be a Pontiac. Maybe a Lemans wagon.

As for a wagon .... how about a nice 6000?

Pro - that almost sounds like a contradiction in terms. :lol2:

I really liked the old 6000 STEs sedans back in the day. Good luck trying to find one today. I don't think I have seen one in at least 10 years.

Notallthere - any non-Korean built Lemans would definitely be cool! Heck, a supercharged Vibe would be cool. A turbocharged Pontiac 301-V8 powered T1000 (a.k.a. the Pontiac version of the Chevette or the Pontiac Acadian in Canada) would be cool.

It is...I've been going for years. They have had all sorts of GM one off cars there before, plus the late John Sawruk use to come and talk. Once even Mac McKellar (the famous Pontiac engine engineer) showed up. I am trying to convince Notallthere to bring the Vibe this year. I

The car show is less than a month from now. I just sent in my $15 registration. It's always a good time.

I was informed that the late Mac McKellar was a member of the Widetrackers, so they are having a special memorable award in his honor this year only, in addition to the the John Sawruk memorial award and Best of Show. Later this summer will be an all-Pontiac car show in Mac's honor as well. I heard it will be held at the senior citizen home he was living at when he passed away. I guess that was somewhere in Waterford. More on that soon.

I just checked the Widetracker's website. Seems that Milt Schornack is going to be there!!!!!

For those of you who have not heard of Milt. He is essentially Mr. Royal Pontiac. He worked for Royal Pontiac back in the day when Royal Pontiac was putting out their supercars, called Royal Bobcats! Milt was the mechanic at the dealership who either worked on the super cars, or oversaw the cars. Milt is the one who prepped the GTOs for the famous Road and Track testing (they were ringers). Milt oversaw the racing Royal Pontiac cars as well.

Milt now markets his own "Ultimate Bobcat". He will restore and tune any Pontiac to your specifications. Milt is another living legend within the Widetrack/GTO years. I am excited! He is another Pontiac legend you need to get to know.

I hope that Tim Horton's coffee will ease the beating for me going to a Chevy meet.

Bring sour cream and chocolate Timbits with the coffee and creamer. Then your public flogging will be eased.

I will post pictures of the show in a few days.
