    I was wondering who is going? Showing their car? Getting Judged?

    I went last year- lots of rain, but still fun.

    Today is the last day to register for the Concours judging- at least that's what the site says.

    Is it worth it to put a normal 308 QV (well driven) through the judging?
    I think I might as well, could be fun.

    Here is the site for registration:

    Hopefully will see and meet some of you there.

    last year stunk with all the torrential rain. the year before was GREAT though.

    i'm keeping my fingers crossed we'll get good weather.

    i'm planning to be there and planning to bring the 550, but i'm not going to be judged. in fact, i'm thinking i might let it get REALLY filthy and then put a sign in the window

    Dear Wackos: Just drive the damn thing!

    :)

    I'll be there as well. But without an Italian car to display. I'm thinking of hanging out on Newbury St as well to take pictures of the cars on Saturday night. I love these cars!

    EDIT>> actually that looks like a big weekend for local (and non-local) events: the MOT, Vintage Celebration at NHIS, the New England 1000 begins Sunday (I think), F1 is at Monaco. And my company is racing at Mt Tremblant, but that's a different forum.

    how about YOU wear an fchat name tag and we'll all find you. yeah, that's the ticket!

    :) :)

    as we get closer, let's set up a meeting place and time like we tried to do last year.

    doody.

    PS: too bad our lazy-ass host hasn't gotten his t-shirt/polo-shirt act together or we could have all bought one of those and worn them! ;)

    I'll be there - but as with others here it seems foolish to have a 2004 CS judged, its not like 43 yrs of TLC have been lavished on it to keep it in as new condition... so I'm in display only.

    As Doody says fingers crossed for good weather.

    fwiw, the long-term forecast suggests rain on thursday the 20th, with clouds clearing overnight and then clear-sailing through sunday the 23rd.

    so let's keep our fingers crossed!

    i've got some good bug splatters going! i'm thinking of taking her out today if/when it rains so i can get some mud splashes going and general yuckiness. with all this pollen floating about a few hours outside should do the old girl wonders!

    Chris,

    Where is it located? Maybe I can follow you there, I live on Plainfield Pike in Cranston R.I. The only problem is that I dont have a ferrari (yet). Am I allowed to take a corvette?

    anybody is welcome, vinny. in fact the parking lot and the street fill up with all sorts of non-F cars (and F-cars that don't want to be on the lawn for whatever reason). you don't have to have a ferrari to go. i'd wager than well less than half the attendants own an f-car. it's a public event that generates revenue for the non-profit museum of transportation in brookline massachusetts.

    hope to see you there!

    Vinny,

    You probably want to go up Rt 95.

    I'm all the way out west on the CT edge of Foster, so I'm going up Rt 395 to the Mass Pike and heading east.

    If you want to run Mapquest for the Larz Anderson Auto Museum the address is 15 Newton St, Brookline, MA 02445.

    Kind Regards, Chris

    Just checked the long range forecast, and................. it doesn't look pretty folks. I hope Doody fires up his big huge forecast computer and comes up with something different. Sat. looks tentative, and Sun showers. I am very disappointed. I just can't see standing in a field in the rain at a car show. I have no problem getting the car wet, I am more worried about getting a sniffle!
