    Huntington Beach Cruise-In April 29, 2017

    Factory Five shows that the Huntington Beach Cruise-In is scheduled for April 29, 2017.

    Have the entry forms been posted anywhere?

    Thanks,

    No it's usually just up in the store at Factoryfive.com but not yet. Are you coming from Charlotte?

    Hi Eric,

    I plan to. My understanding is that Pandora will be ready in plenty of time. So yes (with conviction) we'll be there.

    Thanks for the response. I'll check the F5 website from time to time to look for the entry forms.

    Thanks,

    Mike

    Erik,
    Sure you don't want to rephrase that? Every day is a good day when Sally is on the other end of the line.

    Can I trailer my unfinished roadster to the show? No engine or trans installed, but an unpainted body installed

    In the past there has been awards for " best under construction " . A couple of years ago there were two or three 818's in go cart phase some Running some not.

    I guess my only concern is getting the car to the show spot. Do I unload it near where it gets parked or somewhere else and push it into the show?

    My understanding is, they check people in before the show starts giving you time to unload your trailer and get situated. Then they close the streets and the show starts. At the end of the show the reverse happens then the streets are reopened for traffic. Hopefully someone can verify that this is true.

    If they let me trailer it to the area where I will park, that would be great. I really don't want to unload it a block or more away and then push the damn thing into,the show area

    Bill, you'll be able to unload near your spot for the show. The longest push I've seen is maybe 150-ft

    Thanks Ray. Is there a spot reserved to park tow vehicles?

    Trailers will be parked on main street a couple of blocks inland. I'll be shuttling folks back from there in my Excursion. Details to come...
