WELCOME to the first National Hemi Owners Association Reunion and National Meet of the 21st Century! As you read this, some events remain tentative but will be updated here the moment they are finalized.
This is a gathering primarily of former members of the National Hemi Owners Association but open to anyone with a 426 Hemi-powered vehicle (or their 1950s counterparts). Gen 3 hemis will NOT be allowed to register for the event but are invited to attend as our guests, and will not be able to participate in the Hemicar Show at IRP for trophies.

Each participant, upon signing the registration form, acknowledges they have proper and currently valid insurance coverage and releases ME from any form of litigation blah blah blah... Basically, you wreck it, you pay for it. DRIVE CAREFULLY and RESPONSIBLY!
(Don't worry. A much more legally-worded paragraph, with all the therefores and herewithalls, will appear on each registration sign-in forms)
HOTEL INFORMATION:
Each participant is responsible for their own room. The list is not in any particular order
1. Hampton Inn & Suites, 41 Maplehurst Drive, Brownsburg. 317-852-5800 hilton.com (advertised rate: $157)
2. Quality Inn, 31 Maplehurst Drive, Brownsburg. 317-852-5353. choicehotels.com (advertised rate: $70)

Agree with @HEMI-ITIS.
wish it were closer.
I did get to Indy for the 100th
running of the Five Hundred.
Quite the experience.
 
That’s happening the same time as the last days of Mecum Indy auction.
I usually make a day trip down there to see the auction.
Maybe I’ll go down Friday, stay overnight and check out the show Saturday before heading home.
Or I could buy a hemi car at the auction and take it to the event nearby before hauling it home!
 
I'll drive the other car... :lol: I'm really good at spending other peoples money.... Mine? Not so much....
 
Being a former member of NHOA from "Back in the Day" I would love to attend. Not sure if I will be able to make the date in May though.
 
An update.
Event is to be held in conjunction with the NDRL meet at IRP

Makes it less expensive for those involved.

Well RC is recently retired as well... So you have that in common... But you clearly have a sense of adventure... Whereas RC is acting like a homebody...
 
I was a member of NHOA way back. Didn't even know it still existed. I have a Hemi. Can I come too. Just wish it were closer.
 
I own nothing with a hemi despite the fact that has been an aspiration since I was a teenager. But I was wondering something, is the show restricted to stock original hemi cars or is anything with a first or second gen hemi welcome? Some local friends have hemi clones and a prostreet type custom cuda with Ray Barton hemi are a few that come to mind and I was going to tell them about this event if their cars are eligible.
