Yeah, I'm glad I went too! It was a great time meeting everyone and seeing all the TTA's together. I think about that weekend alot. Jim did a lot of work to bring us all together. IMO, we wont see that many cars again for a long time if ever. But looking forward, I think this summer will be a good event, however it plays out!
As for this year, looks like the TA Nats is the place to be.
I heard the host hotel is full, but may be just a rumor. If you google hotels near Presidential Drive in Fairborn, Oh a whole bunch are in the immediate area.
As for Tipp City, that is a lot of fun as well. Most people cruise up there Sat. evening.
I went to the reunion in that Jim set up and had a great time. Unfortunately, it was very hot and just pavement, so got a bit sick from the heat. Won't be able to make it this year and I really wish I could.
Go ahead and preregister - it's a better deal and helps with show planning. If you show up driving a different car than you registered, believe me, we'll handle it! The only thing it changes beforehand is the window card. While I'm looking forward to having a large turnout of TTA's, both of your '82s are incredibly intriguing to me. In my 23 years of involvement with the show, I don't ever recall seeing a base 3rd Gen (or 2nd for that matter).
w_mcvicker - thanks for registering!
The Holiday Inn is completely booked as of last Sunday - Nat's rooms and the regular rooms are all filled for Saturday night. The Holiday Inn staff is supposed to direct participants to the Homewood Suites next door (it shares the parking lot with the host hotel, so you're still right there at the show). The Homewood show rate is $4 more/night for a suite with a kitchen so it's actually a bit more for your money. If that blows the budget for some, there are several other hotels nearby at different price points.
I'm still hopeful that we can get at least a dozen TTA's in Dayton - get those registrations in! :yes:
