    I guess I'm there with ya, I built this car to be driven, & to be able to see fellow Opel'ers, For the last 8 yrs, I have gone to the Carlisle, & Rout 66 shows and most gatherings in between, Charlotte last yr for Nationals, just give me excuse to get out of town for a few days. I'm game for any shows East of the Rockies. There is too big of a gap between these 2 shown. June-Aug. in Tennessee would be great.

    Nut Case? I resemble that remark . I have been to all but about 3 shows @ Carlisle, and to Charlotte for both nationals. I drove to OMC in 2005 w/ my '69 Kadett 1.1l w/ AT. I have also been to every Opel gathering @ Springfield.
    Last year I put ~8,500 mi on my Bitter w/ the tri-fecta of Carlisle, Charlotte, and Springfield.
    I have received a few awards, but mostly for distance or most needy. They don't have to be pretty, and you don't even have to bring an Opel. In 2012 I drove my new Miata and parked w/ the Opels.
    I like to drive, and mostly visiting w/ my Opel family( and drinking a few beers)
    The main thing is that I will try to make it to the nationals where ever it is.

    Looks as if OMC pulled off a great meet. Wish I had the time and money to have gone.

    But now that its over, guess its time to start thinking ahead, only 275 days

    ExclamationChange of plans!

    It looks like Carlisle has changed things up. The Import & Kit show has now been combined with the Performance & Style show and moved to May 20-22, 2016.

    I don't see any advantage other than to make things more crowded. And now I have to explain to my wife that she didn't have to persuade her bowling team to change their plans for the women's nationals after all.

    Politicians and diapers have one thing in common. They should both be changed regularly and for the same reason.

    I'm planning to make it this year but it's such a long drive I'm willing to waste $8 and wait to register just in case.

    Last year when I called the hotel to get a room Vinay asked me to reserve the room online. Is that the plan again this year?

    Reminder: Last Day to Get 20% off of Registration for Carlisle 2016

    Rates go up midnight tomorrow night. It's $32 right now vs. $40 full price. I do think there is a 10% discount available after tomorrow.
