Hotrodders.com car show?

I was thinking it would be cool to have a hotrodders.com sponsored event. Try to get a good majority of the people on the site to attend. I know there's members from all over the country though, so that can cause a problem. But what if we did one in the east and one in the west? Maybe Tennessee and Nevada?

Come on out to cal for the Hot rod Reunion in October. Badrat and wretchedratchet made it this year, we had a blast. Maybe we could swing a spot for the cars if enough guys show up.

My opinion...aint gonna work... North America is just too large and spread out for something like this. . A local car show might work in many different locals.

The best thing to do is have an online car show

My opinion anyways

Ever heard of Waterfest? Its a HUGE vag only event that people from all around the country go to. Here's the site: Waterfest: Audi & VW Car Show - The Volkswagen & Audi Car Show & Motorsport Event
If we did something like that but maybe not so race oriented.. It could be just a show, drag racing, dyno, and autocross. Put it on a long weekend and make it 2 or 3 days. I think it would be awesome.

The way to make that work is to just make a plan for oneof you to set up at some event and let people know you will be there so they know where and when to show up..Some of the guys have been meeting at Famoso for several years now..I have done that but it can be kinda hard as you may only get one or two the first year but then more come..Another event is Cascade cars and coffee in Portland Oregon which is held every Sat during season..Another way to do it is to find some small resturant with a parking lot and one of you be there without fail on the appointed day and guys will start coming..

The H.A.M.B.ers set up a tent at the NSRA Nationals. Something similar to that could be done.

Not to be a stick in the mud, but too put on a stand alone show would cost a arm and a leg. I know I would not put up the money for that. Too have it at the nats. means you have to join NSRA, that won't happin with many of us. Bentwings had the best Idea, meet at Btt50's, you don't have to join MSRA, just pay the entry fee, Lots of people do that, and they have room although that is getting smaller. That way we can show you the best and biggest car in the country.
