Attention All: Upcoming Daytona Turkey Run (they dropped the "rod" several years ago) is, as always Thanksgiving Weekend,Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Saturday is the "Best" day, as everything/everyone is all set up and there, Friday everyone is trying to get over Thanksgiving dinner, and trying to get set up, Sunday everyone tends to start packing up early, that said heres an imprompto opportunity for fellow FTErs to get together and go, I, at least will be at the Denny's east of the track at 8am, I'll wear my FTE shirt, hope to see & meet some new friends!!! Rick
Hey Rick - Steve & I will be at the show on Saturday. Would love to meet you at Denny's at 8:00 am but will be unable to as we like to be at the gates at 8 when they open. I'll have my FTE shirt on also (Steve would wear it, but it's my turn.) We usually start out in the car/truck section and then end up spending the rest of the day in the swap meet section. Look in my gallery for the guy with the cowboy hat and that's Steve. The hat is pretty unique for Florida so he's easy to spot.
After the show, we always go to the Ale House for Wings & Beer.
Also know that Harry (The Wiz) plans on being there, just not sure of what day.
Carlene, Sounds like a plan.....may be I'll get to the gate by 8 as well, it seems as each year the show crowd gets larger, last year I got there at 10 am and walked 3 miles from where I parked to the gates.
Any other takers out there????
[updated:LAST EDITED ON 26-Nov-02 AT 00:52 AM (EST)]I'll be there too. I'll be looking for the FTE shirts. My truck reg # is 1795 our trucks will be parked over by the play ground area. Mine will be a black primed 47 Ford Truck with red trim. Hopefully I'll see you there.
Im gonna try and get up there friday night after work, and if not sometime early saturday morning. Ill look for the FTE shirts, since i dont have my own From what i hear, there isnt gonna be many trucks there? true?
Bad news looks like i'm gonna miss the fun this year slung a rod in my big mower yesterday.All the money i had saved for the Turkey Run now has to go towards repairs which means a new engine most likely.
I to was looking foward to meeting you and Steve.Having your own buisness can be tough sometimes.Looks like i'm going to be out about a grand for a new short block and i am having them go over the chassis as well.The only bright side of this is they are letting me use a loaner mower till mines ready sometime next week(gotta keep my customers happy).
We had a great time but discovered leg muscles I'd forgotten about.
Charles, sorry we didn't find you. By the time I figured out the map and what area you were in, we were all the way on the other side of the track. My feet wouldn't have handled the walk back to the area you were in. Way too much to look at. We spent the majority of the day in the parts section and came up with some pretty good finds for our '41.
