    Like any store, the "first come, first served" you also get the best choice of what might be there. Is it worth it? How bad does you friend need his parts? If not, he can go to MG, Triumph, Austin Healey, Sunbeam Tiger - Victoria British, Ltd.

    The number of vendors has been decreasing every year at Carlisle...a combination of E-bay and PA sales tax is killing off the vendor field...
    But if you turn up on the friday, it means you get 2 opportunities to bench race and kill brain cells at the "Opel Technical Discussions" held in the common room.....
    Politicians and diapers have one thing in common. They should both be changed regularly and for the same reason.

    BTW.. a "rule" is you have to bring beer from a regional or microbrew in your area to share

    Makes it more interesting than a room full of Bud and Miller

    Heck if it werent for the Beer and Old Friends I probably wouldnt come up this year..

    Charles,
    In all these years I don't remember seeing any Bud or Miller .
    It's like a big beer smorgasbord.
    I can't wait!!!!
