That's all we have is 11 Boss cars coming. You guys that miss this will kick yourself later. I did an event like this in 07 and we all wondered if it would be any good. Everyone that came said it was so much fun just being with others. Some of us still talk about it. The best time they ever had. Most everyone goes to these car shows and the competition and trophies. An event like this is relaxing and just time to hang out. Any weekend you can just talk  about and look at Boss Mustangs is a great weekend. I know the rooms are booked but there are always ways.

Another note to others coming. Over the years Boss 302 stuff is in all kinds of things. There is die cast, pictures,Posters, cups, glasses,calendars and all kinds of things. I collect all kinds of things with Boss 302 on it. If you have anything else you collect bring it along. The cars are really cool but kind of fun to see what kinds of things the Boss 302 name has generated. Kinda like show and tell. No not "you show me yours and I'll show you mine". I plan on bringing a few things and also my R/C cars. anyone want to race?

Paul,
We are going to have fun.

Yes we will and I have been to car shows, and anniversaries and such before. A gathering gives you time to hang out and talk to others so that is why I said to others, you will miss a good time. Oh yes Bob and I are coming together. Anyone from California want to travel together?

John,  I wish I could make it, but you already know who's not a happy camper next week,  Only 11 cars huh, well I've been to shows with 300+, 2000+ and you know what?? I usually end out hanging out with 10 of my best friends who share the same interests as me.  Sometimes there are big turnouts and you say "man I wish I saw that one car", this time you'll see, touch and smell each car in attendance.  This will be a great gathering, a fantastic time will be had by all and a lifetime of memories!  Have fun, I'll be there in spirit!

Pizza is a great idea. Leave it to Melody. It will be like the parking lots we hung out in back in the day.

Well my 69 Acapulco Blue is looking better that it will be there. The engine is back in! Yahoo!
Flange up the tranny, on with the driveshaft and then put on the new exhaust system and then sort out the car.
Its looking better every day.

I’ll be there hanging out with all my friends and hopefully allot of new ones. Unfortunately, I will not be able to have my car there but very much looking forward to seeing everyone’s cars that are there.

Good morning John -

It looks like Paul (prjohnson3) and I are caravanning from the Central CA together (trailering....but that's another story), and will be arriving in Medford Early afternoon Friday.   Can you provide any guidance in terms of where you want us to park the B302's, after we download the cars?

Any other direction is appreciated - see you on Friday!   BTW, my son is coming down from Seattle to be with us - it will be great for you to meet him. 

Thanks,

Bob

Bob, Paul (and anyone else?)

We'll be heading out from Sacramento Friday morning (original point of origin is LA). What part of Central Ca are you from?
Want to meet up?

Hi Gary -

Our plan is to leave Paso Robles (Paul), and Monterey (me), at some reasonable time  on Thursday morning - and drive up to Redding and spend the night.    We're planning on leaving Redding on Friday morning (timing TBD) and get up to Medford early-mid afternoon.  When are you leaving Sac on Friday morning?

We could meet up in Redding and the three of us take the balance of the trip.  This is awesome....

Will be on the look out for individuals and small groups as we make our way north. Will be driving a rental :(  but will be there anyway.  If a car drops in behind you and sticks there - might just be us

At a reasonable time. ;)

It's about a 2-1/2 hr drive from Sacto to Redding. Maybe our "reasonables" can align.

I think John sent you my phone number. Why don't we all PM w phone numbers and see what we can put together.
