Re: Florida Newbie

Thank you.

Your El Camino looks nice, plus you picked the best year.

Is that you praying to the Chevelle gods at the NPD show?

Re: Florida Newbie

Going to go tomorrow to check on paint progress.

Its taking longer than originally planned but this guy is GOOD. Worth the wait.

Gonna be original code 71 Lemans Blue base coat/clear coat with black vinyl top and black SS stripes down the sides.

Off Topic, anyone going to the NPD/Silver springs show in October or Cruisin the Coast? Also in October.

Good color choice.

Have not seen any info on either show.

Do you have a link or info to the events?

How about Chevellabration next month?

You gonna make it?

Re: Florida Newbie

Here is the link for Cruisin the Coast
http://www.cruisinthecoast.com/

No info for the NPD show yet. Heres the link for last years show, keep checking back as they will update this page when registration starts.
http://shop.autocraftinvestments.com/pages/ss_gm.html

When and where is Chevellebration?

I work out of town 3 weeks on/3 weeks off so sometimes shows just dont match my schedule.

Good color choice? Naw, the BEST color choice

Re: Florida Newbie

Thanks for the info.

Chevellabration is the get together for ACES and this web site.

Also known as CB12.

Info is in the ACES magazine and on this web site.

Do a search of the threads on this website for CB12 or chebelebration

for more than enough pictures and info.

It's the first weekend of June, will be happy to caravan with you or

anybody heading North!

Re: Florida Newbie

Looks like I wont be able to make Chevelebration.

I'll be home from work but even if the paint is done, I wont have all the trim etc.. back on.

I would however not mind convoying to Missippi for the Cruisin the coast.

I will be trailering my car there. It looks like a really good show.

I already sent in my registration and have hotel res. at Holiday Inn Express in Ocean Spring.

The wheels are in the body shop for a frame off ordeal. I do come to look and dream from time to time at the cruise-ins.
