Title: Anyone going to Fall Fling Oct. 30?
Post by: Snotty on October 27, 2010, 10:09:29 AM
Jerry and I will be there, as might "Little Chris" from Wasco.  Won't have any of our cars though.

I WAS going....

Blew every last dime I had on the van. So, unless somebody buys my road grader in the next day or two. I'll be shooting for Spring Fling. It's the 25th anniversary show so it should be a real big deal.

I will be there as usual. I won't be selling but might be buying if I find some deals.

Well Chris, Rob won't be there so who will you buy from?  Ha!
 
I believe I have your phone number on my cell - I'll call you on Saturday.  I will be looking for some C parts for a friend in Canada.

Yes I do have your number. What parts are you looking for? If I have any of them I can bring them with me. Looking forward to seeing you again.

I plan on being there with the 300 as long as it isn't raining.

Same here Chris. 
 
The main thing he is looking for is a fan shroud for a '69-'71 C Body.  He has a '71 Newport with a broken shroud.  I told him I had seen one there for a real good price once.  He's also looking for seat backs and some other interior goodies.  I need to write him to get a complete wish list.
 
By the way, Rob, sorry you can't be there.

You may scoff. My feelings will remain intact <sniffle>.

actually, there's been plenty of interest in the grader....but when they find out it weighs 22k and won't fit on their Sea-Doo trailer they kinda lose interest real quick LOL!

there's now two guys here in town that want it and have the means to move it. We're playing phone tag.

Scrap? um......no. She's got good bones, just needs some TLC and she's ready to start working again. To many of her Sisters got turned into cheap Chinese consumer goods. I'll let her sit and become yard art before I let the scrappers torch her.

Chris, Brian's car is a '70 Newport, not a '71.  It has a '71 grill on it so it confuses me.
 
He needs seat backs and the lower seat mouldings that wrap arond the seat bottom.  So do I! (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif)  He needs black; me white.  Also a console lid and the rear arm rests - all in black.
 
Oh, an AM/FM radio with the dash face plate.  I told him the latter will be tough.
 
These things plus the fan shroud.  If you have any on this list please let me know.
 
See you tomorrow!

Bad news:NWS is saying 40% chance of showers Friday night after 11pm and an 80% chance of showers before 11am. I'm guessing if the roads are wet Saturday morning most won't show. Such crap! The only 12 hour period of the week it is supposed to rain.

Well you have nothing to worry about.  Drive the Grader! (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley2.gif) (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley2.gif) (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley2.gif)
 
If the roads wash out, you can make a new one (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif)

If I drove the grader, I would have had to leave last week!

We are going anyway.  I've been there twice while it rained and once when it rained on us going home.  Since we're not taking a car it won't be so bad.

Yeah, if it's wet when I wake up I won't be going as I don't drive my cars in the rain.  If so, I'll have to wait until the Spring Fling.

Still steadily raining in San Gabriel.  See you guys at the Spring Fling.

So how was it?

No rain at all at the show.  Had a good time seeing Chris again.  Not nearly as many people/vendors/cars as in previous years, but the rain may have kept a number away.
 
The "Withching Hour" came quickly though.  People started leaving en masse at 1:00 p.m.  That was a bummer.
