Sounds like fun but that date of 2017 is in the past......    Sorry Aaron couldn't help myself.  I noticed this while I was pulling info off your post for the next newsletter.  Please let me know if the days of the 20th through the 23rd is correct because I did use those days figuring you only made a mistake on the year.

Am now officially Registered & Room booked for the event.  :yay:

They were right saying how Internet Explorer does not work well for this On-Line Registration.  I tried 4 times and kept asking me to provide info for 2nd Car (which I don't have) :doh:

So changed to Firefox and it was a SNAP....................... :)

Very nice shot of the valley Aaron.  Such a picturesque place.  Looking forward to it more each time I check on this.

Darren, I wonder if a 72 Monte got #72.  That would be kind of neat for the 3 of us to be side by side in the show.

You don't have that car you had at the last show anymore?  The all original one except for 1 fan belt and the tires?

6 months to go!

Already more than half of the 850 spots at Peach City Beach Cruise are full. If you plan to have your car in the show I suggest you register as soon as you can.

Also get your hotel booked if you have not already done so as rooms are limited in the area. If you can't get a room let me know and I will see if I can find one for you near the official hotel.

We will have a great variety of Monte Carlos at this meet. Works in progress, a convertible, LS conversions, an 11,000 mile original, 4-speeds, SS454s, 72 Customs, and many other great rides.
