just been looking on the various cheap flight sites as after checking the rota and finding those days free it would be a little rude of me if i didn't investigate the possibilty of going!! :D

i'd have to fly out on the 27th after 12pm here and fly back on the evening of the 1st so i'd have 1 day to see the show and 1 day to have a look around indianapolis before heading back to the airport to arrive home the next day. flight is about £370 which doesn't sound to bad and i have just completely paid off the credit card and will get 3 days overtime this month so i feel it might be fate that i should go! :wink:

yo eddy, are you gonna go? or just thinking about it? i never have any trouble going to places like this on my own but it would be cool to meet up with a fellow retrobiker for a cold beer or 6 during or after the show! :D


let's say 90% sure, when do youhave to decide for sure? I'm quit flexible with my time... will stay a few days extra to visit Rody's shop in Ohio (close by).... 6beers will do :D

I can only imagine that going to this would be dangerous for the same reasons I drive past the Ferrari dealership everyday and don't stop :lol:

@ yoeddy,

when i looked at flights last night it looks like i'd have to make the descision quite quickley othewise the flight price will go up. i could stay longer but i'd have to take some time off not that that isn't an issue but i'm trying to save those days if i can. it is money i don't need to spend but i'd just be interested to see it all, just for fun really. :D
