i plan on going at this point. chime in as you make plans. would love to caravan with the ATL folks.

I plan to go. I still need heads to move forward on my engine. So I don't think I will have my car ready.

That might be an excellent weekend for me. Who knows if I will even have a replacement car by then.

What is the nature of this show? Do you think they will have any vendors selling air-cooled cars?

it is honestly one of the best shows i've attended. GREAT cars of many makes. all great quality. great location. great show organization. lots of other activites (autocrossing, BMW test track, etc). the promoter has been bugging us for a couple of years to bring more quality VWs to the show. he LOVED the GL cars last time. they typically only have 4-8 VWs out of about 300-400 cars in the show normally (best guess). check the galleries for one or two shows i took shots of a few years back.

Thanks Zen. If I can make it, I'll definately drive my VW down for the event. It's currently the best vehicle I got, so it gets driven everywhere except the trash dump.

The Triumph *MIGHT* make it as far as Greensboro, and my kidneys likely couldn't stand a ride in the Toyota for that long...
