Last year we met at the Starbucks off Gilman in Issaquah Commons around 11:30, grabbed a coffee/pastry and cruised to XXX. It's just a few blocks down the road.

Let's plan on the same this year. And bring any toys you can donate. I'll be there unless it's raining heavy or snowing.

I attended last year without Freddie, but she's running plenty well enough now that I intend to attend WITH Freddie this year!

Hmmmm road trip for the Van?? She is running good, but no heater yet?

11-06-2012, 01:58 AM
Heater??? You have the best heater of all between your seats!

Yeah - I'll try to be there too - weather being considered.

There sure are a lot of weather-related responses here..... I'm in the same boat :rain: with the additional consideration that I hope to have my car back together by then. The front end will be receiving some new components along with the disk brake setup purchased from another member.

Did you hear that whip too?

Keeping an eye on the Weather Channel and Sunday doesn't look very good for going to a show. Keeping a watch on it, but right now looks like :rain:

I'm definitely not making it to this one. My parts aren't all here yet and then I have to set up an appointment for a front-end alignment. RATS!

Deb and I are going to go to the Cruise... without the Falcon... just for lunch and to support Toys for Tots. Our daughter and son-in-law live pretty close, so we'll stop off and visit our new granddaughter on the way home!

Well, the forecast has gone from 70% chance of rain to 90%. Not looking good for a dry show so far... :rain:

An hour ago it was looking hopeful. Now it looks like crap. :rain:

See you next year:3g:

Sadly the weather was down-right dreadful this weekend. I seriously doubt any cars made it to the show. I didn't even try. Now if it was snowing, that would have been an adventure!

I went... without Freddie. Had a nice lunch. Took a toy; got a dash plaque.
There were a few cars braving the rain, but lots of gearheads inside! Most, probably like me, came in their "daily" cars to have lunch and to see what DID show up!
Would have been a nice way just to get together!

That sucks that the weather didn't cooperate. I hope at least people brought by toys if nothing else.
I had a pretty sunny weekend over here??? "Blue Hole" was in effect.

I ended up helping a friend scope out a car that was made available to her; namely, a 93 Saturn 2-door coupe, which had new brakes, tires, and alternator and a mere 65,000 miles on it... all for only $300. She was very much in need of a reliable car, so I did my civic duty by helping her out.

I will put toys in a tots drive bin a before the season is over. Glad a few made it out in the non-blue hole we had over here.
