All, sorry I will not make this weekend but I did go to Oshawa this week and had a great meeting with Mike.. Remember when crossing the border to change to metric 80km on the 420 changing to 100km. traffic was moving a little slow around Toronto. I will be departing Niagara Falls tomorrow headed back to Virginia. Hope to pass some of the north bound Camaros. To all of my Canadian friends we had a GREAT Experience while in Canada the people are so nice. Thank You So Much......

Glad you had a great time Terry. Don't worry, I'll represent the Mid-Atlantic region for you at this event (especially since we both drive "Bumblebee" lookalikes).

That takes away all of the fun in the trip. We want to goto Niagara Falls since we are this close already.

There isn't many on-site venders. The one's that are participating (see sponsors on first post) are largely there to provide information and answer questions. Those sponsors won't have much in the way of cash-and-carry product. BUT, Nurse Chevy has stocked up their Camaro/Performance related accessories big time! They will have plent of GM and GM licensed accessories / products for sale as well as lots of Choko apparel. They accept major credit cards and the almighty cash.
