    As of right now, I plan on going.

    Also, there is a show at CJ Ponyparts next weekend July 10th. It's usually a pretty nice show. Last year had about 300 Stangs, free food (hotdogs & soda) & door prizes. It's free to enter your car. Anyone else going?

    CJ's is about hour form here Its 7o miles. Its exit 78 off of Rt81 I think. Its really in hershey.

    I think the show ends at 5...? Not sure couldnt find anything on the website.



    Fords at the Mall is 2 hrs from allentown,
    Its worth the drive I like the show!! and the auto Cross it great because you can learn if its your first time and its got different classes, Fords run for time against Fords and then other cars are as ususal SCCA classes but they are relaxed for that race its more to have FUN!

    How many cars show up, and how many of those cars are mustangs?
    I'm thinking of going, but i'm not sure yet. Its a somewhat long drive. Every show, race, event is always like 2 hours or more from me. It doesn't matter where it is, its always that far away...LOL

    Ang is driving the Mini and ill be taking the 66. The Pacer with the chin and the side exhaust isnt Cone friendly :(
    the 66 was Fun to play with last year and its doesnt get to go out to the shows much. That show is its time to have Fun rather than sit in the garage.. I really HOPE it doesnt rain... you know my leaking problem...

    From NE pa its probably the same drive time as me. Its a nice show I ve been going for 4 yrs and the people who run it are very nice and its a Great Club. the NEPA Scca is Great too!! Lots of nice people.

    Yes its mostly Mustangs but there are other Fords too late modles and older cars and there are Trucks too but all in all mustangs are the majority there are about 300 autos that enter the show. The auto cross is maybe about 40 -45 cars with the Ford only class with Prizes!! and the other classes for the other cars that are there. The placks are for the Ford cars though, at least they had prizes last year.. not positve for this year, so dont hold me to it.

    For those who are not familiar with that area and Williamsport watch your speed on on I-180/220 I got pulled over twice on that stretch within a mile of each other, on different days. they like to sit in the median. Luckily the State Police were very cool and let me off with warnings both times :nice:. Be careful after the turbotville exit to the exit for the mall which is the Hall Pennsdale exit thats where they like to sit. For entertainment purposes other than the show, they have an off track betting place on the other side of sears. IF you go to Williamsport they have a Red lobster, TGIF, Olive Garden, Hoss's(steak house), and Chinese Buffet among others. THey have a couple good clubs/bars The Cell Block (a former county prison) on 3rd street, Club America at one of the hotels it is the second hotel away from Wegmens, the Pub on 4th st near Lycoming College and for those who like micro brews the Bull Frog on 4th st. Just my opinion but stay away from the Rainbow room, the Shamrock, and the Tap Room if it is still open all on west 4th about a 2 or 3 blocks from Bull Frog. The 3 bars i just mentioned are in a bad section of town so to speak. Also the Rainbow Room is, well, Rainbow it says it all. I wish i could get there but weather permitting i will be going to a test and tune at a track about an hour and a half away (beaver springs).

    No i don't live there but I use to go to college up there Penn College. Where did you go to College. There are a couple of hotels on rt 15 they are very close to the Little League Museum. I think there is 2 bigger ones and a smaller one. South side is a nice area. Also right outside of Montoursville there is a Super 8 hotel there and if you take the 3rd street exit Williamsport off of I-180/220 there is an econo lodge as well both have fair rates. At the TGIF there is a hotel.

    For adult entertainment there is a strip club behind the Super 8 called Club Fred. It was 18 to get in BYOB and a $10 cover.

    Is anything going on for Friday or is it Just SAT and SUN
