    I would like to go but I have no friends nearby to join in for the ride down. I've driven solo the last three years and it sucks.
    A buddy of mine that used to be my regular swap meet and car show buddy has been out of the game awhile and his back and knees are getting too beat up to walk at a pace faster than a snail. My brother in law moved away. When the Wife joins in, we have 3 dogs that have to be cared for when we are away.
    Son of a bitch.

      Yeah I'm not going either, we'll be at kid's volleyball tournament that Saturday. Aiming for the spring show though if the weather's nice!

            I always wanted to attend that show for my many years in CA; fall or spring show. I'm guessin at this point it'll never happen for me. Y'all have fun!

            You're still alive, man ! Nothing to stop you but yourself. You have the van to sleep in if the hotel sells out. It is the biggest Mopar show in the state!
            Seriously....Make it a point to get there next year. Spring Fling has a bunch of cool activities along WITH the show itself. You would enjoy yourself.....except for it being HERE in California!

            I had to work today so no Fling for me. But...driving into work on the 210 westbound near Myrtle ave in Monrovia I passed a beautiful orange 1973 Plymouth E body that was probably headed there. I tried to give the driver the thumbs up, but he was an older gentleman and had his eyes glued to the road. It was awesome to see.

              I always like going and have been for years, but today was nothing special. I went to sell parts and walked the show and swap meet in less than an hour. Not a lot of cars with some parts, spring is usually better with 2 days.

              There was one 4 door black Polara cop car that was pretty cool. I recognized a lot of b and e bodies from previous shows...

                I left work a little early and headed over to the park. Unfortunately by 2:15 most everyone had left or was leaving. I did see this beautiful 4-door which gave me ideas for ours. Nice car, whomever you are.
