Reading 17 Signup List

Well, I want to see who's coming. May not be as large a group as in other years, but I'm sure it will be a good one! So I'm starting the list. As evidence of the continuing deep interest in the best looking car in the country, comments from those who can't or might not make it are welcome. As in, "will be there in spirit" or "hoping the gods of (repairs/money/time/whatever) let me attend".

'95 LSi, a stock, superb, polo green, "not a garage queen"; Miss May in the '09 calendar! Sold last year...
'63 Studebaker Avanti; almost 20 years later, "open hood, pour in money" but what a design!
'64 Studebaker Daytona, red w/rag top; part of the Presidential Parade (as in DC) & probably why my right ear rings
'71 Mercedes 280 SEL; a partial restoration that always rode like a limo
'72 Datsun 240Z; simply fun, and the #2 sports car of the '70s
'73 Plymouth Scamp w/a small V-8; cute, and the faster I drove, the better the MPG
'90 Acura Legend; the last year of the first sports sedan, terrific handling plus comfy touring

Re: Reading 17 Signup List

.

In the past, with 17 days to go, this list was a least 15 times as long. and the number of rooms reserved as well

I remember 40 rooms a night, sometimes more. I expected Reading to go on for many years; not wither at such an early age.

SERIOUSLY, three people and one reserved room??

Re: Reading 17 Signup List

Well, there's a few more! Hopefully a couple other day trippers will confirm. Since it looks like it will be a small one those going should post up some estimates of what time they will be there to decrease the likelihood of missing each other.

I won't arrive until the early afternoon and will stay into the evening if there are others around. I was also going to stop by on Friday since I have off work, but considering the confirmations I guess there is no point.

Re: Reading 17 Signup List

I'll be Subie-less but was planning to stop by Saturday afternoon. Folks near to me keep going to the hospital and/or dying lately though so I can't guarantee it.

Re: Reading 17 Signup List

Oh how plans change.

I currently have a new baby girl to take care of which is keeping me from attending. She is also why I have only driven the SVX maybe a handful of times since she was born.
