While I've never been to one of the National events. I'm excited to go. This is the thread for NASSM 2013. The first post does show what hotel, how to register and what vendors are on board at this time. Since there is not as many days for the event as what seems to be from years past, some plan differently. In looking at previous threads for prior years, there are some that jump on it as early as August (10 months) before the event but a lot of the hype, whiz-bang shaboom doesn't come out until closer to the event. Four of our biggest vendors say they are going to show. I'm interested in door prizes, maybe auctions, raffles and goodies too. I'm sure commitments need to be made from the companies and they may not blast it all out at once to make build up for those going and those on the fence. Martin, any extra tidbits you can share?
I'm not running the show nor have any involvement making it happen but there are 46 registered (Martin says on FB) in January. Is that a bad statistic 5 months before the event? Several years seem to show more registration numbers closer to the event.
I for one will go and have a great time enjoying a really cool place to see and drive (there is a 7th natural wonder there), meeting people I talk to on the forum (but have no idea who they are), try to catch RacerX and Rob on a drive (yeah right, I'll need an upgraded turbo, hint hint), meet vendors I've purchased from (and not purchased from yet, hint hint) and if you don't go, I don't mind getting your goodie bags and door prizes. My car loves the extras.
I'd love to see if Norms Fiberglass comes and brings the widebody and coupe top work I see on the forum. Norm, are you going!!! Make a showcase Norm!!! 5 months away. Just bring the prototype if you have to. I want a debut in person. It's the biggest gathering of people directly at what you sell. Be there Norm.
Now I have to work on my custom taillights, solder the TS motion sensor relay and place the powdercoated valve cover. So much to do and so little time. See you there.
