In the past, DDM, Werks, Windrestrictor, ASAP Graphics, Martin Smith with GMR products were at many events. Windrestrictor is busy selling to other roadsters including Corvette and Mustang. They still support us too, thanks, but they have to spend time where the big numbers are.

DDM is going to be there, with their ever expanding product line which is great.

NS, now that you gave me the idea, maybe I will mosey to the Ozarks, Chop, chop!

I just read the 2016 Ozarks thread again, and while I think it is a great location, and be great to meet some of y'all on here I already know I won't be up to making the round trip drive. Now if we owned a truck and car hauler attending would be a no-brainer. What can I say I'm no longer young and dumb....edit that to just say no longer young. But if NAASM ever returns to Canton I'm in.

FWIW: The geographic point of the contiguous 48 states of the U.S. is Lebanon, Kansas (excludes Alaska & Hawaii). Its position as located in a 1918 survey is located at 3950′N 9835′W, about 2.6 miles (4.2 km) northwest of the center of Lebanon, Kansas, approximately 12 miles south of the Kansas-Nebraska border.

BTW Rob, hope to see some vids of your light show.

Spoken like someone with a lot of old cars

My insurance forbids.normal long distance driving

And I'm traveling with two women, all their luggage, multiple laser lights for the show, tools, spares, and misc stuff

Real men take care of their horses and their women

If you sold a couple of your Junkers you could get a used trailer
