Mecum

NHRA Gatornationals

Daytona Turkey Rod Run

I like the LS races in Bradenton as well as the U S Street Nationals

I've done Gatornationals that was a wicked experience. I'll have to make it out to Mecum, love looking at these auction series on TV.

I am surprised you didn't put "Big Daddy" Don Garlits Drag Racing Museum on the list. Granted it is open nearly year round rather than an annual event.

I did visit it Frosty but not the blockbuster I was expecting. There is a muscle car collection/museum down south of Ringo thats pretty badass. It used to be an old Walmart location and its just filled with muscle cars in #1+ condition.

I'd love to pay Don a personal visit. He and I haven't had a good long conversation since Eric White's funeral. The problem is the wife would expect to come along too! And she wouldn't want to leave either.

Are you going to say "Hi" to our pals at Gold Eagle for JUSTA and me?

I've not signed up on Gold Eagle since they flipped the site. Didn't think there was enough room over there for Chris plus anyone else? lol. Carl got ahold of me via text and asked If I wanted these.

Neither has JUSTA or I, nor has anyone bothered to call us. I submitted a write-up to them regarding the Charleston WV show back in October. It has not been posted to the new website either. Not sure what's going these days.

Of course if you see Bruce "Mr. Mow-It-All" Kaufman there, tell him we said "Hi".

I didnt recognize anyone there last year, all college kid jobbers. I went and introduced myself and told them I was part of the forums and they could have cared less.

So how much did the Jim Wangers' Edition GTO go for? I'm guessing six figures since its a one-of-one.

Love the 'Dandy' Dick Landy car. Brings back memories.

Thanks for the pictures BTW.
