    quote:The way gas prices are headed it'll be $4.00 a pop by the time summer rolls around. That is going to cramp my style as far as travel anywhere goes. At 14 mpg it is spendy. So I'll not be attending any of these Nationals. Kinda makes me wonder about this old car hobby. Put all that money in the durn thing and then can't enjoy it anyway.


    Wagone,

    I believe you're looking at this Old Car hobby wrong. Driving a old car is about the experience and running into people with similar interests. Of course everybody has ton of Questions about your car and it is a long cry cheaper to drive a Studebaker at 13 MPG than jetting around in motorboat for a weekend! Even at 13 MPG and $4.00 a gallon the utils of entertainment value exceeds the cost.

        Ditto, Studebaker-r2-4me, besides, When you know this far in advance where they are going to be, if you really wanted to, you could Plan ahead and save up, or make a budget to take the trip.

        I am glad that next year it is in Iowa, only about four hours from my home. Due to time restraints and my job situation, I am afraid that is going to be my first time to be able to go to the national. I am still going to try to make it this year if events play out in my favor.

                        For my part, I'm really looking forward to the International meet being in Springfield in 2011. From the mid 70s into the 80s I was able to go to almost all the Internationals and had a fine time.
                        Family, job changes and the like have conspired to keep me from going to one since Estes Park. Thank goodness there are local chapters, smaller meets that are closer, and the FORUM that can keep the spirit alive![]
                        Of course, none of us knows what the next few years will bring, but I look forward to meeting some of the forum members in person.
