Most of the folks that went together last year that own an LX just went to hang out, check out the event and participate in the evening cruises.

Mopar Nats is picky about which late model cars they will allow in the car show. If the car is not 1980 or older, it has to be a special edition, performance version or modified. (i.e. SRT, SuperBee, Daytona, etc.)

We had a great time last year, and it was a LOT of fun to see so much Mopar horsepower. It will be nice to see a lot more Modern Mopar in attendence. I just got my tix and pass in the mail today and plan to be there the whole weekend.

I am in the show again this year. I plan to park in the show area on Friday and then move over where everyone else is parked on Friday after judging is done. I have a LOT of stuff to get to the painter within the next few weeks but she will be ready to show off by August. :D

I'll be there for my 18th year in a row, but not bringing my Charger. I have my tickets and I'm ready to go. This year I'm staying in a friend's rv instead of going to the hotel. I do have reservations at the LaQuinta Inn on Brice road that I'm not using this year. I would give it up to someone else, I just want to keep my name on their list for following years in case this rv stuff sucks. Otherwise I will just cancel the reservation. I heard lots of good stuff about the town of Heath at night instead on Brice rd. This year I will try Heath for the night time festivities, and our campground is just North of the raceway near Heath.

18yrs in a row? WoW!!! :bowdown:

I thought Heath (Saturday night) was way more fun than Brice Road (Friday Night). The flow of traffic was better, more burnouts, and the crowd was ridiculous. Both nights were fun but I think Heath has the better cruise of the weekend. Regardless, I plan to be at both and will get plenty of pics and video.

Going Saturday for sure, maybe going Friday night and staying at a friends in Columbus. By myself this year. Planned on going to Heath. Will be there at 5:30 at the restaurant.

Heath is much better. I have been to the Nats since 86. The early years were four day events for me, entering the show and cruising EVERYWHERE!

Now it's a one day event, coming home by midnight or so.
