Sorry I got on here late, Six AM is the time or before. Meeting at 6:45 will not work. I can hear the cars coming at 5:00 in the morning. Ya'll know this is a big deal. If you have never been just get there after 7:00 and think you might park close and you will walk a lot. The numbers for this event go up after each one. Car nuts from out of state come to this event. I freakin love this event more than chasing orange cones. Never know who you might meet or see. Let's have fun.

Yeah, I was going off what the Harper guy told me. We were through there at 6:15 and people were already arriving. If we do this again, we should be there at 6:15. It was really cool seeing that many nice cars together.

Harper's just posted the numbers if they are right it blew away last year.

Over 6000 cars?
10,000 spectators

It was unreal. I probably walked less than 25% of the area.

Ya know I got there a bit after parking spaces got gone and the car died in the middle of the row by our set up. Clutch res to master seal has been leaking and I forgot to check .Needed brake fluid and all leads turned blank. Walked past an old pop up VW camper three or four times and never thought to ask. He turned out to be the life saver of the day, had a bottle of class four and it got the clutch working with help of fellow club members. Cars and Coffee rocks!! PS saw neat stuff also. Thanks to all who helped.

Great to see everyone yesterday. Holy cow.... 6000 cars. Amazing.

Walked it twice and I know I didn't see everything. Tons of really cool sights.

Had I checked here, I would've known and parked with yins all at the start.
Good lunch too!
