Trans am nationals 2016 !!
« on: October 30, 2015, 07:21:39 PM »
Hello every one and as we go into winter and one day before lovely Halloween it's time to start planing our 2016 car show trips and at the top of all of ours is the Trans am nationals...I just made my reservation as well as my dad made his at the host hotel. I am bringing my 1979 10th Trans am  W72 with as it sits in my garage 5,224 miles and my dads bringing his 1979 Trans am nocturne blue 15,467 mile W72 ...both cars are all stock and very well preserved condition with all documation even sitting on the factory uniroyal tires, we've got our 2015 Silverado"s and enclosed trailers ready...10 months to go !! Is any one else making plans to attend ?

Ps: the debate has been to bring my 1979 10th , 2002 collectors edition or 79 SE W72 which by that time will have just completed its frame off restoration ..well it'll be done March or April so not set in stone on brining the 10th anniversery car it just happens to be my favorite ... What do you all think ?

Well I suspect many people are already planning on attending. I'm planning, but have I made reservation yet... NO.
I want to do POCI next year, Firebird gathering and  The All Pontiac Show in Pontiac Ill. Along with doing other trips.

trailering from cincy to dayton should be illegal since its only a 45 minute drive.

First time I met you was several years (around 2008?) ago in Tipp City.  You had the SE there.  We talked, and you impressed me as a young man who loved these cars.  Judging by the list of cars in your signature, that love has grown over the past 6-7 years.   I'm kinda partial to that last 4-speed built, myself.  I sold my '79 400 4-speed SE a couple years ago- the engine had a date code of K237; November 23, 1977.  That Wednesday in 1977 was the very last day that 400 blocks were cast.  The next day was Thanksgiving Day and no 400's were cast after that.  I didn't have anywhere near the last 400 4-speed built, but I had one of the very last- if not the last- 400 blocks cast.   I vote for the SE, but as long as you have a car there, it's all good.  See you in Fairborn.

Mike,

Thank you for the kind words and yes it's been some time and over the past 7-8 years my passion has magnified and influenced me to work hard and make some good decisions in which it's helped me to purchase the cars I've currently got and have had(im really a car nut lol along side of the Trans Ams listed ive owned 4 Camaros and 5 corvettes one being a 2013 new at the time Z06 and 14 Stingray which I traded the Z06 for.... Cars have motivated me to do we'll and work hard... My SE is a very special car fully documented and I am doing a complete nut and bolt restoration however putting back on factory exhaust, tires, belts and hoses should look new once completed over the next 4-5 months, I haven't fully decided on which one yet guess when the SE is completed I'll have my mind made up :) best wishes and see you soon....

                As for me after 31 years I will not be at the Nats. this year.
I will be going to the Woodward Dream cruise next year . Part of my bucket list
As I will turn 70 in Jan. I need to finish up my list . There are show and places I have not been to yet
so I plan to go . My grand kids are growing up fast and I want to spend some
time on the road with them. So have fun enjoy yourselves and have a cold one for me.

Me and the wife are planning on driving out and it looks like she will fly back as she can't get that many days off. I have a couple of things to get changed out along with finishing up the cruise control. Looking forward to putting faces with names.

79SEW72,
My office is in West Chester. I'm surprised that I've not seen you at any of the local shows around Hamilton, West Chester or Lebanon. So how is it that Mike ( Waaayyy down in western KY) knows you and I don't?? We will have to meet up sometime. My wife and I ha e also been looking in Liberty Township. Just haven't found what we're looking for yet.

Nice small world, I have only attended two cruise inns this past year really busy with work as I typically work 27-28 days per month( I am at work as I type this)... my family always attends the shows and takes there cars and have sent me a pic or two this past year of a 10th Trans am bet it was yours.. Do you attend the Bridgewater falls show ?  I am planning to attend a lot in 2016, I actually met Mike 7 years ago when I was just getting into the hobby at the Trans am nationals with my 79 SE, Looking forward to meeting you soon...

My 79 SE is having a frame off restoration at a shop in Mason, Ohio called CW Restorations he specializes in Pontiac's ... If you ever need some work done to your Pontiac's

Sounds good looking forward to 2016 !! ... The dates I am not sure on however it's always been the last weekend of August so good chance it'll follow the same. I reserved a night at the host hotel and close estimate they told me was 134 a night and well worth it , if you've never attended it's worth the time to attend hope you can make it.

I downloaded PhotoBucket app on my phone.  then I just upload directly off my phone.  I find it pretty easy to get the img link from Photobucket and faster too.  Copy the img link and paste in TAC post.

I want to go, but wife said no long trips until I get the AC fixed, specially during the summer. I need to a find an AC shop here around Louisville that will convert the freon to the new stuff and check out the parts. I know any AC place can probably do it, but would rather have someone that has done older cars before. I just don;t know of any. Right now, the compressor turns so that might be OK, but have no idea.
Drive it like it's a rental.

Not sure yet if we are going. Would love to see everyone, it is has been many years but next year I turn 50 and my wife and I will have our 20th anniversary and we haven't solidified plans for those celebrations. The other challenge we might have is our daughter starts school in August so, we shall have to wait and see how that pans out. Would be great to bring the 'Bird up and see all ya'lls smiling faces.

Contact Robbie on here, usually in the 4th gen section. I bought mine sight unseen off of him and didn't regret it one bit.
30th's are still commanding some serious coin under 30k miles. I sold mine a year ago for 16,000 with 88k miles on it.

As far as I know we will be attending the NATS with the GTA.  I'm hoping to get a couple of items cleaned up and back to being show worthy.  Actually had good weather here last weekend and took it for a weekend cruise and added 300 miles to the ODO.  Showing 41,350ish now.  Too many miles, time to get rid of it. :lol:

I think we may try to do the show in Pontiac, Ill in 16 as POCI since its just one state north of us.  Looks like I need to get a second job for shows in 16 lol.

I believe they are adding another Firebird class to the event.  They are also looking for clubs or ? to help sponsor classes. The proceeds go to the museum, so they are looking for way to improve the bottom line.  Our POCI chapter is doing at least 1 class.

I have been sketching out a map of Car museums in the Midwest and I am thinking I might stay in the region for a while after the Nats to go a bunch more places.  There is a big even in Auburn that starts right after the Nats.
I want to be like Paul Kenny when I grow up

I want to go, but wife said no long trips until I get the AC fixed, specially during the summer. I need to a find an AC shop here around Louisville that will convert the freon to the new stuff and check out the parts. I know any AC place can probably do it, but would rather have someone that has done older cars before. I just don;t know of any. Right now, the compressor turns so that might be OK, but have no idea.

Mortons auto in New Albany did mine 3yr ago round $200
