I am still in the air about going. Hotels are super expensive if not sold out at the good places

Wish I could help you out, but I have a full house. When my Dad passed away in 2009, my Mom moved in with us. You could pitch a tent in my backyard.

I'm taking Friday off from work to check everything out. Going to start with the swap meet at 7am. From there I'll head downtown to see the car's that are competing for the Barrett-Jackson cup and take in the big boy's toy store. Then over to the GSR to see the Adam's Polish booth and the Chevrolet ride and drive. From there I'm going to the convention center for the Barrett-Jackson auction.
Drive over the hill tomorrow and join me!

Heard you stopped by when I was away at lunch, the DJ said you asked if someone had a G8.
Anyway, sorry I missed you hope you had fun at the event.

I wish I would have seen this sooner! It would've been nice to see a couple of G8s from/in Reno since there doesn't seem to be very many.
