Update! The event has been postponed to July 19th due to scheduling conflicts! I've PM'd Cliff to try to change the thread title, but until then just ignore the original date in the thread title!

It's that time of year again, Minnesota Fieros Forever will be having their annual Summer Drive-In Show n' Shine!

This year's Show n' Shine Event will be held Saturday, June 28th July 19th starting at 9am at Wagner's Drive-In. This is a show and shine event, no competition, just a gathering of Fieros and friends! So dust off your Fiero, clean out the cob webs, and come join us for some good times.

We're planning to eat lunch at Wagner's before taking off and cruising up to check out the Car Craft Summer Nationals at the Minnesota State Fair grounds.

Details are also posted on the MFF events page

Hope to see you there!

Yes, the event is on the 28th. I notified those with the power to change and the calendar has now been updated. Thanks for pointing that out and sorry for the discrepancy.

Perfect, then it'll be all ready to bring to the show n' shine.

Yes, I really did just wait two days to respond to your comment for the sole purpose of bumping this thread as soon as it hit page 2.

Wow, did he have trouble because it's so low?

If anything, Fieros are not required to show up and hang out... I can think of at least 3 people that will be doing that this year.

a little issues with the car being as low as it is. we had to slot the upper ball joints (control arm) a little more, and adjusting the rear toe was difficult, since the rods were frozen. everything is now in spec though.

Yeah, I'm actually hoping to go to that this year. Perhaps we should eat lunch at Wagner's and cruise up there instead?

I'm so glad I didn't miss this event. My car was still in a lot of pieces for the first date. Now it has about 34 miles of mostly trouble free driving, LOL, so I plan to be there. Looking forward to meeting some of the MN Fiero Forever club members and seeing their cars. Hopefully it will draw other Fiero owners to have a look.

I've never actually been to Car Craft, is it typically only nice cars that enter? I think my car might be a little out of place, especially with a different color rear fascia right now.

you can bring anything into Car Craft. really, you see everything, from projects, to beaters, to 200,000 show cars. its a lot of fun. Jon, your car would be just fine, especially with the motor swap!

Just an FYI for those considering showing your car at Car Craft Nationals 2014:

http://registration.familye...bsite/ccsn%20faq.pdf

(specifically, on-site registration is $65, granted it's for the whole weekend, and includes a "co-pilot" and any children under 15).


Also, for those who want to just go attend the nationals, 1-day gate tickets are $15 for ages 11 and older ($26 for 2-day, or $39 for 3-day).

Hate that I'm going to miss this... I planned my whole summer vacation around Minnesota but this show fell outside the window.
