    Default Turkey Run car show in Daytona FL Nov 28-30-2013 ---- Roll Call

    Any Florida members attending the Turkey Run Show and Swap meet this year? I'll be in Orlando for Thanksgiving week(Disney) and picking up a few parts from some members and maybe a car too. Planning on going on Saturday the 30th to check things out. I'd like to meet you local Buick guys if you are there.

    No reason to delay going. We start on the beach side the weekend before T day in the Publix parking lot and go straight through the weekend after Thanksgiving. The parling lot event is more fun than the race track.

    Jim please PM me with the info on this lot... I'll have to take a pass and check things out if I have time. We will get in the Orlando area on the 23rd. I already have a yard pass for part shopping/gathering. But a car has now became available that I may be bringing back home as well.

    Couple of questions for you guys that have been there before.

    Do they separate cars by make/model or are you free park anywhere(mixed makes)?

    What's the best day to dig around in the swap meet?

    I'll be there Saturday (without a car - this restoration thing is taking SO long!)

    I asked a while ago on one of the FaceBook pages and Curtis Stanley says there is a group of 12 +/- that will be there and parked together. Hopefully he'll chime in on this thread soon.

    Often they are segregated by car clubs or just random.

    Bel Air Paza at Daytona Beach on the Island is the place to be from the weekend before T day until the weekend after. Once the track opens Tursday the cars all come to Bel Air by 4 pm. The Plaza runs 24 hours a day for a week. People from all over the world attend. Out houses are supplied and Ruby Tuesdays sits in the middle of the fish bowl.

    Please keep me updated on the location. I will make every attempt to meet up with you all. Would it be possible to print the V8 Buick logo and put it under any of you members windshield wiper blades so members are easily identified? Especially by myself.

    Todd,

    I usually go on Friday because it's easier to walk the swap meet. On Sat it's so full It's almost impossible to walk. Are you still planning to come to the St Pete/Clearwater area?

    Do we have T-shirts?

    Phil,
    Yes I'm still planning on being in the Tampa area on Monday the 25th to pick up a hood from Tom. And drop of a carb to another member. I'd love to check out everyone in the area while I'm there if time permits. When's the major traffic into and out of Tampa from Orlando area.

    Currently had Monday the 25th and Saturday the 30th ok'd with the wife to go parts gathering and hunting. But it now appears I may also be securing a car to a trailer for the return trip home so I'll have to figure out when and if that will happen.


    Shirts?? What shirts??

    Sounds like you have a busy trip planned especially you have a car to pick-up. If you get into Pinellas County my shop is 4 miles off the interstate on one of the main roads. 10820 75th St N, Largo(or Seminole) 33777. I'll be there on the 25th.

    Disregard the earlier post. I will be making a pass thru Daytona Friday morning. I'll be on the look out for some of you guys while I am there. Hope I can meet some of you.

    Curtis,
    Sorry we were unable to get together this week. My plans changed and we left for home on Saturday. So I took the ride to Daytona on Friday. Met a few other guys you hang around with. Saw a few Buicks and about another 1000 cars. There's no way one can see everything in one day. Hell one would have trouble seeing everything in a week. Looks like I'll be planning a trip there for the whole week in the future.

    Had a great time at Mickey Mouse World, Picked up a 66 GS hood from a member and a 66 Skylark from another member.

    Worst part was the 11hr drive back home all the way. Sucks being the only one that can pull a trailer

    But I dont know how to squeeze 2 days of baby sitting out of the wife
    Im consider myself lucky I get one full day LOL

    And to give a better idea to those who've never been.. here's an aerial shot
