    I'm in. As I understand it, to park together, you have to arrive together. 7am meet at Krispy Kreme and caravan down the street? Hopefully the weather channel is wrong and we get some decent weather for a good turnout.

    Clint, looks like you've got a couple decent stand-ins if your oil problem doesn't get worked out. 'course, you'd have to park at the end of the line...:D

    I've been here a few months. The one thing I've learned is that the weather forecasters have absolutely no clue what they're talking about.

    So, assuming Maltby finishes my car I absolutely will be driving up on the 18th. It'd be great for all of us to park together, so lets meet. Krispy Kreme is perfect since I have a fondness for doughnuts. All food, really. I'm looking forward to it. Have been for a long time!

    I plan to drive there from Bremerton. I also like the stop at Krispy Kreme, so I can meet at 7:00 in the morning. I think it takes me about 1:15 from here, so I will be leaving early. Anyone else from over here that is going to the show?

    I remember that last year we had a pretty good turnout and arrived in a caravan. I also remember driving home in a driving rainstorm after owning my Viper for 1 month. It was an interesting education.

    Rich, Not sure if you realize who I am... I met you for the first time at one of the XXX Drive-In shows, then again earlier this year at Bremerton Motorsports Park. I'm down near Gig Harbor and would enjoy driving up with you. Finally!

    Hey Nathan, I've been here almost 37 years and have yet to figure that one out. The only time they're right is when they stick thier head out the window and look up - even then it's hit or miss.:rolaugh: And Krispy Kreme is not food, its a roundish sugar/fat blob with brown food coloring. If you don't belive me, just try eating one cold.

    Nathan, I sent you a private post with my email address and phone numbers. I wasn't sure if I am supposed to post them, so I usewd a private post. Hopefully we can figure out a place to meet and travel to Issaquah on Sunday. The weather people are guessing it will be a nice top down day.

    Absolutely. If Maltby finishes my car by then I'm there. I've been waiting for this forever, so I hope they are. Cam is probably tired of me calling.

    Anyone else want to drive over with us? Tacoma and Renton are on the way...

    I called XXX. They're expecting a large turnout and recommend showing up between 6 and 7am. Registration is $15. Prizes awarded.

    I'm planning on going as well, but I'm just 3 miles up the road. Not much of a drive. But after a rainy track day today (Park Place day at PR), I'll need to really spent some time cleaning up The Beast. See ya'all at Krispy Kreme!

    So, is that a 6 a.m. meet/asemble/cruise then? I'll be getting the prize for the most rock chips for certain.

    Yeah, it'd be great if we can all park together. I'm willing to do whatever it takes. The last time I went there were several Vipers parked all over the place.

    Last year was my first time there and I remember that Krispy Kreme doesn't open on Sunday till 7:00, in case someone needs a donut fix.

    By the way be sure that if you get a box of donuts to share with others you should not sit it on the ground near your car. Last year I had nearly a dozen donuts in a box and I wound up sharing them with about a zillion little ants. Oh well, the thought was nice.

    Let me know what time I need to arrive there.

    I kinda wanted to do this one, but with the weather so nice, I would rather be cruzing than being stuck at a car show all day. Hope you all have fun, might stop by the show for a quick look!:drive:

    Well, that raises the question - once in, can we leave whenever we want, or are we effectively stuck for the day?

    I called again. They have parking attendants helping people leave when necessary. They start giving out the awards around 2 or 3pm.

    The address is 6210 E. Lake Sammamish Parkway Issaquah, 98029. It is on the other side of the freeway from the show and I think we just drove a couple of blocks from there to the show last year.

    Does anyone have a concrete time to meet at the place yet? I think we had quite a few cars there last year, but somebody led the group to the show so they could park us together. Last year we met around 7:00 and I tihnk it was about 7:15 when we headed to the show.

    I will show up whenever they set a time.

    Rich, I'd like to caravan over with you. I'm picking up my car in a few hours! Do you want to meet in Gig Harbor like I mentioned?

    Everyone else:

    I'm completely guessing about this, but I say we all meet at Krispy Kreme at 6:15am so that we're sure to get a parking space at the restaurant(or at LEAST more likely to...).

    The later we show up the more of a chance there is we don't get a spot at the drive-in. When I've called XXX they say we should be there as early as possible. The 2nd guy said "around 6". So...

    6:15am @ Krispy Kreme?

    Well, I had a fun time. It ended up being me, Rich, and Reidesign. Christian drove by later. Some other guy whose name I do not remember also showed up. He had a viper tattoo on his left arm.

    There was also a Ford GT, which was nice.

    Nathan,

    Iam the guy with the tattoo, Brian is the name. wanted to stay around longer to meet the others, but needed to go. I might do the Mopar Spring Roundup if the rain stays away. I know you are going to VOI 10, take your Viper if you can, I didnt take mine to VOI 9, much more fun with your own car. Take care,

    Out of three Vipers and a Huge crowd, two of us (not me) won a raffle prize. All in all a fun event.
