    L A county Arboretum car show - serpants in the garden

    This years event was to be Cat's in the garden but is weak on entrants. I NEED more cars, ANY FFR. The event is on Sat Oct. 7th NO cost but is all day long. Los Angeles County Arboretum. Your car will be in the garden, by itself (not all lined up). I need 10 to 15 cars. Those of you who came in the past, you know who you are, are welcome. Tell your friends.

    Please PM with interest.

    Details, We gather at 7:30am and enter the garden just before 8am. We can not move during the day (the cars) you can come and go. Around 4:30 we parade back out. There is no cost to participate. You can buy food in the garden or bring your own. I will forward more details to those interested.

    Thanks
    Dan Ziol

    I'm not getting gray, I'm adding chrome....

    Dan,

    Need more info .. . what time to be there for early parking and when is the cut-off time for arrival? What time is quitting time?

    If I can make it, I'll have to leave mighty early in the morning . . . and then a long drive home. (But, I used to live in SoCal and a stones throw from the Arboretum).

    Talking to Dan, earlier in the week, he would really like a car in go-cart form. You interested?

    The email notification to Dan was delayed for a bit due to Dan's email provider not liking our email server. He should have it now.

    Neither would be required but you have a few weeks if you'd like to get them finished.

    bummer, I have one - and only one - thing planned from now until literally past the new year.

    It just so happens to be on this day.

    It's been a while since I've seen everyone, and I'd love to meet some new people.
