I'll be at Ponies in the Park in Beaumont, Texas April 19,20,21st.
Anybody know what's the difference between Pony Corral and Display only at a MCA event. Also what's Conservator Class?

The pony corral is most often where the cars for sale go. Display only is for the nonmember cars and those that do not wish to be judged. Non members can also go in Judges choice class but is for two years old and newer cars. Conservator class is for cars that have received enough gold or silver points to get their grill medalion. At that point they can decide to keep being judged or go in to this kind of retirement class where they get in to the show for half price and are honored with being parked together on the front row or inside if that is available and they are no longer judged.
Last weekend Tari and I went to Warshington DC to meet with a company called Motosho who is designing a online registration process that will include a intuitive classifaction. After you have found your class and checked out you will recive a email conformation with a QR code that you will carry with you to the show. When you arrive at the the QR code is scanned with a smart phone and all of you information will go wirelessly to Tari's show data base. Cool uh no more long waits at classifaction / registration. We will be testing the process this season.
See you at Beaumont
Marty

Lisa, I'll be at Fab Fords this year. Not sure if I'll drive the Bronco out or just come sans vehicle, but I'll be there.

Sorry, I won't be able to make it this year. I will be in TX at a family reunion. Maybe I can make it to the show in Beaumont on Sunday.

HP numbers are good and all, but they're like asking someone how much they can bench. What difference does it make, if I can still kick your ass.

I'm going to try to be there, if everything goes well ... I was really trying to have my car ready and painted for this show but the body/paint shop I had in mind was sold and a new owner and a different crew took over ... oh well, hopefully I can find another decent place here soon ...

Let me know if you're coming. We could meet at our usual place (Starbucks on Beach) and drive in together.

Fabulous Fords Forever - Knotts, 2013

I had a good time. Learned a lot. Met Marty and met up with Arlie and two other California Special owners. There was family showing their 1966 HCS that had a J code just like mine in a town close to me. Click image for larger version
