I'd be interested. Was going to go to the Rudy's show but might be postponed because of the much needed rain (not complaining).

There is one in Killeen on the 19th that I was thinking of attending, but not entering. www.ctmotorsports.net.

That would be it for the month of September for me.

Amazing! Would love to attend just one of those car shows! If anyone is in the area there is a monthly car meet coming up (September 26, 2009) at Classic BMW of Plano, TX. Although its not an actual show, you would be very hard pressed not to appreciated such an amazing gathering. It's from 8am-12pm and last time there were only two saleens there (mine and a twin-turbo S7). Hoping to have at least 5 there this time as Ferrari/Porsche practically outnumber everyone. Below is the vid and website. Thanks

Hey SaleenCobra,

welcome to the forums! Yes, its a monthly meet held (well I guess you know where by now) at Classic BMW from 8am-11am. We would really love for you to come as we already have confirmed about 5 (S197 Saleens including a PJ), 1 (S7 Twin-turbo although he appears to be at most) and 1 (95-S351). We will all be parking together (minus the S7 TT who will park w/Ferrari) Please PM me your email address and I will keep you in the loop. Next show is Sept 26th.

Thanks, Jarred

Wasn't planning on even trying to make it down for the event Joe. Got tthe family coming in town to try and help me prep the house for putting it up for sale. Might have an opportunity to have JDM tune my truck though so I am now going to try my darnedest to make it down there...

Time to see how understanding my family REALLY is. "Hey, come paint and clean and do yardwork on my house while I go play with my truck..." Still unlikely that I will be able to make it BUT I AM SURE AS HELL GONNA TRY!

I don't know why they wouldn't go for that!
(and darn the timing....we just bought a house for our daughter in CS...doh!)
GREAT opportunity to have JDM lay their magic hands on your truck.
Be sure to look me up and I'll hook you up with some refreshments!
