    I was going to TRY to do my engine swap before the meet, but some dumbass gave my engine away...

    Oh well. I can always throw some of the old electronics back in and call it a mod. In a way, this is good, because my car is missing over 7,000 Watts of stereo and a siren at the moment and it is simply barbaric to get along without these...

    If you even think about jumping out of a cake, I'll personally slap you silly.

    Well, they COULD, but that's a crapload of dough.


    Fine fine fine. God damn. LOL



    Friday:
    Afternoon:
    1. Perhaps meet up at a Cadillac dealership. See if we can convince them to let us test drive a V. (I wish). Gift shops are always cool at those places though.
    2. Group lunch somewhere before heading out to the show.
    3. Evening of course will be mostly dominated by the car show. We'll see what happens with seating arrangements based on how many attend/can cram into the wagon, or what Craig ends up renting for the weekend.

    Saturday: EMPTY. I demand suggestions. Key West is quite a haul, so I'm not sure I'd want to do that (it's almost a 5 hour drive, that alone would eat up much of the prime beach time.)

    Sunday: For those who are interested, scrapyard trip. I know I'm going.
    Otherwise, everyone leaves. Hopefully no more fuel pump issues.

    Key West is definitely a haul, but Key Largo looks doable from WPB. What about Miami? Here's a couple ideas.

    http://www.gcrm.org/ (Rob could steal a new whistle for Branwen!)

    http://www.miami.com/dauer-classic-car-museum

    Here's one in Fort Lauderdale.

    OK, the Cali boy has done his share. How about something from the Floridians? It is your state.

    I was looking and saw that Packard museum, but then I had to go to work. Chillax, I'm working on it.

    There's a muscle car museum in my home town, FYI We might combine that in with Sunday if we find a bigger one down south (in other words -I'm going regardless, don't know about you folk. )

    Yes Craig, if it exists, I can steal it. Especially if it involves Steam Engines. I have a talent for that. Funny story about train-whistles on Branwen though, but that is for another time.

    Car museum sounds cool, whichever we end up going to. There is one a bit North of me (Nowhere near WPB) but it has vintage Hearses, so it is is automatically the best one by about a billion miles.

    Scrapyard sounds fun. No one break any windows, because, being Irish, they automatically blame me.

    Car show was cool last year and was not really far from where we were, so we can always take multiple cars there if we have to. Be warned, my car is big, but not meant for holding THAT kind of passengers (though the back was clearly meant for hauling Giants from Michigan) and the more of us who go, the more likely it sounds for us to have a Caddy-Convoy. The closest we got last year was Rental DTS followed by Roo Wagon (it's an honourary Cadillac in my book), followed by Karli's CTS, followed by Josiah's Torque Factory and Branwen taking up the rear.

    The Car show led to many Shenanigans, I recall, so Sting is trying to bring it back this year. What you may have missed includes, but is not limited to.

    Craig learning what "Street Legal" really means.
    Matt Learning what Fire Ants are.
    Fake-Diamond-studded Plexiglass windows in hoods.
    Orange Socks in engine bays.
    The Rise of THE HORSEPOWERS.
    Carbon Fabric, the latest trend and source of The Horsepowers and laughs for countless ages to come.
    Mysterious Fedora Antics, clearly the work of of everyone's favourite Forum troll, MrSinatra.
    Sting's Dream Wagon.
    Counterfeit versions of your favourite forum members.

    So if you can only make it for one event, I think THIS is the event to make an appearance for.

    Yeah, the show was the craziest fun for sure.

    Bump. Thanks to Sal, I'm going to look into Clematis street and see what it offers for fun. Sounds like it's definitely a great place for food though.

    Ooh! Is that where we are camping? Wherever we camp out, I can bring a grille, and music, television, videogames, bagpipes...you know, whatever disrupts the serene quiet of Sal's neighbourhood the best.
