Hey everyone, I have some great news. My friend runs an online car show coverage site. He has been doing this for 5+ years now and has alot of traffic to his site of people checking out past shows. My wife and I have even gone to shows he couldn't make it to and taken photos. He has agreed to post photo coverage of our meet!! :D He has even posted up the info about our show on his site, (I have to get back to him on the cut and paste error). This would be huge to getting the site name out to all of the mini-truck clubs and custom car fans. Check out his site at http://www.xclusive-images.com So everyone lets break out the car wax and tire shine and bring a good turnout!!

Ryan, if you can't drive yourself, maybe you could hitch a ride w/ Dave Cunningham, Britt, or somebody else coming down through Mebane.

Alright, guys! Things are starting to take shape now! Our agenda is not completely etched in stone, but this is what we have so far,

--March 15th, 2008
--meeting in the parking lot between Bass Pro Shop and Circuit City, Concord, NC
--time:about 12 noon or so(My son and I will probably be there a little earlier)
--bring parts to swap if you wish to, but please confine them to our vehicles
--we'll have time to meet and greet each other, and tell stories about our trucks
--after a while, if anyone wishes, they can drift off to the Bass Pro Shop, or other shops in the mall.
--later at about 4:00-4:30 we'll all meet up at a to-be-determined place to eat, possibly a steak house buffet so we can beat the huge dinner crowd.
--we will have some great door prizes
--and I'm having a limited quantity of t-shirts made up
--and whatever else we can come up with
--and best of all....I'm letting the cat out of the bag....

Jack (Joe Isuzu) himself has committed to be there as well as the famous Jerry Lemond :) :!: :) :!:
If you've been merely thinking of coming, well now is your chance to meet our heroes! You'd better go ahead and come!!
Comments or suggestions, please PM me. Thanks to VendPro (Alan) for his help planning as well.
Andy

Anyone planning to attend, please send an email to southeast-pupmeet@isuzupup.com
Jack has created this address so we can better plan our event in March.
Thanks,
Andy
