If I get  a chance to go, it won't be official. Meaning I will drive up there and check it out as a spectator. Not sure if I will drive the TA or not as there are a few more things I need to check prior to taking it for a long drive. On the flip side, where better to break down then at TA Nationals. I really want to go to see what parts are for sale and to buy things I don;t need. =)
Drive it like it's a rental.

I and the misses will be there again this year! The car has not been there yet and won't again this year! I have 3:42's to replace the 4:10's but they won't get swapped till winter. Oh and i'm awaiting Daves ( PTFB ) lower control arms so I can install the coilovers! But i'm not going to miss walking around and drooling over all the T/A and firebird porn!  :lol:

Will be there on Saturday and Sunday, vendor booth and delivering lots of bezels and picking some up as well...back to coaching High School football so Friday is out until retirement from the coaching and teaching profession...talking with the vendor registration guy, he said they had more vendor registrations this time around than in years past...

This will be FIVE years gone by, Trans Am-less and not attending. The 10 years I did go were the fastest three days of the year. Had a blast every year, met way too many people to remember them all. Times have changed. I still felt the small twinge come August about getting the car ready for the Nats. You guys going, have a great time!

Had a great time this year.  I missed Jeff somehow; looked for you a couple of times.  I never did see Rick either.  I feel blessed to have met so many great people through the Nats.

I saw you from a distance once Joe but got sidetracked talking with others. It was a great weekend for my group .My buddy Danny took second at Tipp City and I took home a Concours Gold Unrestored with my 79 W72 Formula.
