Findlay 2019

Post by Jeeps4Brains » Fri Apr 12, 2019 10:03 am

Anyone else going to Findlay this year?

I went last year and had a great time. I saw a full page add in one of the MV magazines. It looks like the flamethrowers will be back as well as the Huey rides.

Anyone else know how it is shaping up?

I will head out tomorrow on my 10 hour drive. I am looking forward to taking time off, looking at OD stuff and talking with other folks that have OD fever.

I need this, work has been driving me crazy of late. :roll:

I had a great time as well!

Oh, forgot one of the funny things I saw at the show. The first day, Friday I was there early.

Side note: (The guy collecting money at the gate said park where ever you want in the grass, the, I will call him the grumpy Lieutenant, came by on a golf cart and pointed me to park out in the middle of no where! I must have made some face cause he relented and said go part near the camping folks closer to the show.)

Back to the funny, who ever brought the weasel jumped in early on Friday and tore off at high speed across the show to the front. This got the two ladies organizing the show pissed and they tore off in hot pursuit in a golf cart waving their arms and yelling at the top of their lungs. I just laughed.

I just wondered if the Lieutenant put the weasel driver on report. :lol:
