Re: All Firebird Lawn Show 2011 Better than Ever! Get In Here!

Rick,

It's funny you mention that. I have been comtemplateing the judge issue. I will not be participating this year as a contestant. I will only be showing the car as "Display Only". Haven't made my mind up yet, but I will let Tom know if my final decision is yes.

I know you participated in the judging process. You know, I think I remember at the Saratoga party back in October when the idea came up for the new class for the prior year's winners, I believe I already said yes to helping out for that class. Tom may not remember that. I have to email him on that. At any rate, I think if I did any judging it would be for the 2nd gen. 1977-1981 stock class since that is what I know the best.

Can't wait to see your car. Are you putting on all rally II's or all honeycomb rims when she is done?

Jim
