Hmm.
I am clueless.... The only one I can think of is the B96 car show and well.... 96BonnevilleL67, I and about 6 of his friends attended it last year...... GHETTO!!! Not worth it.
Other than that the only big show I can think of in June is Back To The 50'* at the Minnesota State Fair Grounds..... no post-1970 Pontiac Grand Am'* will get in there. I believe 1970 or somewhere right around there is the cutoff point to be eligable for showing.

just found out which one it is

Minneapolis, MN
Dates: June 13-15, 2008
Satuday there is a Car show at the Perfect 10 Car Wash (Asphalt Draggins`18th annual night car show from 5-9pm) that we will be attending

So far there are 5 possible ga guys going (this includes me)

What we're planning.

Leave on friday morning, hit up lunch in Fargo, get into the hotel and make plans for the night.
So that gives us pretty much up until 3:30pm to do what we want, gotta touch up the cars b4 the show. *based on the hours given above*

Hotel is about $67.00 a night per room. (that'* $33.59 per person with 4 ppl in the room for 2 nights.) So it'* gunna be an inexpensive way to get away

I thought about getting my C3 in the B96 show one year. I don't listen to the music much, but any chance to show off the whip.

Remind us when you hea down. I'm sure we can a few locals together to meet up with you.

The June shows that I know about are the "ALL GM Show" at the fairgrounds on June 8th. The Back To The 50'* Show is the second largest show in North America with over 11,500 cars last year alone, but it is open to 1964 and older cars only. It is June 20-22. Then there is the Car Craft Summer Nationals at the fairground. I think it is about 3-4 thousand cars and might be around July 17th or so.
