Ok...so heres the scoop. This year is a substantial change from 2015. We had 7 slots last time and this time...........we've got 3. Its not exactly ideal but we're still gonna knock it out of the park.

Furthermore, we will be sharing space with CMC (they get 3 cars) and the Vette club (6 cars). So we need to stand out and really separate ourselves from the crowd.

With that said, we've already got 2 cars locked in (will be revealed in time) so we're looking to secure our 3rd slot along with lock in 1-2 alternates.

This is open to members and friends of members. If you've got a good submission, post it up. TCG members will obviously get first consideration but we will look at everything.

Have at it!

I should add, we are not looking to replicate our lineup from last time. So if we used a specific make/model in 2015, we likely wont free up a slot for it this time. We need to go in fresh again. Thanks for understanding.

No fbodys we have decided (unless as a possible alternate). We had two of them in the show last time.

A big problem is we're going to be in a group of domestic cars (mustangs and vettes)....adding more domestic cars isnt going to help us stand out or grab the attention of passerbys. Keep that in mind.

We're not trying to alienate members or specific cars, I just want you guys to understand that.

R8 will be at the show via Audi, the capri is essentially a mustang and we're gonna be directly next to mustangs...Jim's viper, while sexy will be represented by dodge. We need to stand out, not blend in, if that make sense.

Nothing against those cars at all.

We brought cars to the show that you 100% could not see while there unless you came to our booth.

Sounds like you have a solid plan Mook.

Lame that the boring ass corvette club gets 6 spots though.

Load-in dates will likely be Feb 9 and 10. Then media days are Feb 11 and 12. Public days go from Feb 13-21 and the cars will need to be retrieved on the 21st at the end of the show - last year it was 7-8pm ish I think.

Are their any nice Subarus here? A nice STI or WRX wouldn't be bad.

Not sure if he's on here or not, think he's mostly on the Facebook groups, but have a buddy with a nice Galant VR4.



Anyone have a clean R32 skyline yet?
