Fortunately for us this will be one of the closest national events we can make. We are from Tiskilwa, Il. @ 145 miles north west of Springfield.

From what I've been told is that the Galaxies are to be the leed group for the cruise, on crurse night. It is to form at the Illinos Dept. of Trans. office and work to the downtown to the capital area. For a much more detailed information you could contact the president of our culb Midwest Galxie Club. Her name is Beverly Wake at [email protected] the last time to talked to her she was hoping to have maybr close to 100 Galaxies to show up.

Sat. Registration opens at 9am-noon-show 11am-9pm
Sunday - reg-9am-noon-Show11am-3pm. Cars may not leave early unless an emergency because of the crowd. Police must escort vehicles out and cannot return. Sat. will be a long day, but they will keep us entertained I'm sure.

Not sure when 63ford406/Richard and Cliff will arrive since they are driving there from the Los Angeles area. Heck not even sure of 63ford's car color now! I think he told me it was finally all one color of primer rather than his trademark one or two fenders primer the rest paint
63 wagon whatever color it is now and Cliff's is a Red '67 w/white ragtop 7 litre. Guess the CA plates will help identify if you wanted to say howdy.

Beverly Wake told me all the Gals will be together at the show, unlike everyone else mixed up. Very nice.

I have a question is it still possible to get in the show? My car isn't that good looking but I won't have another opportunity to do somethinkg like this for a few years after I go off to college, but I also don't want to feel like an idiot and have the only primered car there. I'm about 100miles aways in O'fallon, MO.
If I go though I'll sand off the red overspray and put some more primer over the bondo and stuff.
