It's never too early to make plans to join us in beautiful Carthage, Missouri on Saturday, October 21 for the Maple Leaf Car Show. It's a competitive car show with a small admission fee, but many years ago I decided Fluffy deserved to be there just like all the other classic cars. Over the years other cars have joined her, so now the Unicorn Squad (Whitetop, Geo4theWin, WillmRush, Toaster Cat, and Scoobs) are regular attendees. Last year a new forum member from Oklahoma joined us, as well.

Carthage is in SW Missouri, but close enough to SE Kansas, NW Arkansas, and NE Oklahoma that it is not a long drive. We usually meet at Hardee's for breakfast and then assemble at the meet around eight in the morning. We adjourn to my house in Joplin for a cookout in the afternoon, and then we will camp somewhere for the night. We finish up with breakfast the next morning. The campsite has not been selected for this year yet, but more information will be coming.

There will be hundreds of cool cars at the event as well as food tents and a swap meet. You can find out more information and sign up at mapleleafcarshow.com

Tentatively count me in. But by then I'll have my '97 going and there's no way it's eligible to be a show car :hiding .

Don't fear the competition. We are there not to win but to prove a point. LOL the more cars on the field the better. It's more about hanging out together than anything else. It only costs ten bucks to register early or around fifteen at the show. You have to pay to get on the field and park together. You'd be surprised how many people want to come look at the GEOs.

If all goes well Tim and I should be able to attend. The ole Turbo Sprint should have a few more road trips left in it.

Wow! I guarantee you that car will be a big hit. That is exciting news for sure. More details will be coming. Right now I'm trying to nail down the campsite, but there are motels around, too.

This is turning into a full-on get together! I wish I had a farm where everyone could stay, but we will for sure feed everyone at our house after we leave the car show and I will arrange for someplace for us to camp nearby. How much fun is this!?
