quick question... how strict are you with that 6pm deadline??? Cause remember last year??? Not just me... Like the John & the Missouri guys. Remember that?

Also.. are you sure it's 1/4 not 1/8.. I remember for HIN this year, from what I heard from the Scion Evolution Club. They said it's 1/8....

for you ron i'll make an exception for the 6pm deadline and as for the gas thing its 1/4 or less tank of gas. i remember cuz i talked to the fire marshall for like 2 hours before everyone started showing up.

so ron don't have a repeat of last year and put gas in your car before the show.

Dude.. it'll get worst... I'm sorry to announce that my ACen Supra is out of commision as well due to mechanical failure... I just been too busy with "side gigs" with Scion, Wrestling, YoumaCon, my work,and other stuff.... I could of let my guys at work repair it for me.. but I'm not willing to pay the extra $$$ for it.. And, I'm going to make a Car for YoumaCon... and I'm saving up for that as well...

Since I can't bring the Supra at the condition that it's in... Is it okay / possible for me to replace it with my friend's "Asian Monte Carlo" you know which one I'm talking about...

Also, I "might" have a tC that might want into the car show...... He was at HIN last Saturday, and I told him about it.. but I can't trust his word if he'll do it or not...
Here's a pic of it...

I'm prolly too late...

But I have a 2005 Mazda RX-8, with JDM clearcorners, and a MazdaSpeed cat-back.

Grey wheels.

Don't know if it's show quality, but it's my race car, so if you wanna see a car with racing experience...

That's about it.

I heard someone threw ice at one of the cars (or interior) and the owner of the car got pissed about it and wanted to pull his car out of the exhibit hall. The news passed all the way down to the basement of the con.
I was in the parking lot from the false fire alarm in '12.
I overcame the ACen rapture in '11.
I survived the ACen fire in '10.
I dodged the H1N1 outbreak in '09.
I was denied ice cream at the ACen 10th Anniversary ice cream social in '07.

i can honestly say that never happened cuz i would have definitely heard about it and probably seen it to and if that did happend whoever threw ice at the car would have had there badge pulled and thrown out of the con.

Yeah if it did happen, that wouldn't have been cool at all. Effing around with someone's car will get you shot. I had to ask because I wasn't sure and I remembered seeing an empty slot on the floor and wondered if it did happen or not.

I'm pretty sure it stayed 3 empty spots for the whole con (sorry that i couldn't bring the car due to major mechanical failure). No car was pulled out during the con...

there were like 5 empty spots because cars couldn't make it on time or forgot about the 1/4 tank of gas rule.
