I'm booked. See you there. Don't we have some Caprice people in Georgia and Mississippi?

Come on, Bob...."old" or is it something else? My birthday was March 21, and I was born in 1951--I think I'm a little bit ahead of you, and over the past 3 weeks I've driven/rode along from ATL to San Diego (in a Honda Element with bad motor mounts), spent my birthday away from home, and drove back (alone) 2200 miles by myself (not in a Honda) in 3 days over the Easter weekend. Yes, I like to drive....I even made it from El Paso to Shreveport in a single day, 800+ miles. Not my single biggest day of driving, ever, but the speed limits on I-20 in TX do help reach my destination sooner!

Unless something changes, I don't expect to make the Extravaganza either, as I need to drive back to San Diego at about the same time frame. I'd like to be there, but it doesn't look good for this year.

The Impala SS ISSCA Nationals is going to be in NOLA this year, and the Caprice has a place with that organization, as does the SS sedan.....

It's another opportunity for Caprice PPV owners to gather and participate.

Bob--has your Caprice ever been out of Texas since you've owned it?

I use to belong to that group when I had a '95 PPV. I think that's the forum that had a few people that made "New Caprice" owners unwelcome. Maybe I"m thinking of another group.

I'd be more open to a Chicago event; Still got young kids

Hopefully it's another group. There are several here that are or were active over there. I know I still am, and haven't seen anything disparaging toward new Caprice owners. They'll flip off the FWD crowd, but I haven't seen anything bad towards just about anything RWD.

So I wanted to make sure I'm not missing something. Do I need to register for this event somehow or do I just show up? I already have reservations at the hotel and I will not arrive in time to partake in the bowling. I don't use facebook either.
