I will likely be there unless some unexpected family issue/emergency dictates otherwise. Depending on exactly when the show date is set. If it is for the last weekend of March I may be in Europe.

We should be there. Love getting away from the cold weather and spending some time with friends. Hated to miss it this year, but wanted to be home for Easter.

How about taking photos of people next to their cars. I can't make it to any of these since I live so far away and would like to see the faces of who I chat with in here. Most of the time, we just see the cars and people ask "who's car is that?"

That show was at its best when Frank and Mariana ran it as a direct result of their hard work and even though I just sold my IMSA I will be there.

I'm always interested, but that time of year is usually busy for me. Sure would like to get back out there again, though.

Frank, glad to see you putting on the show again, I will be there for sure, and hopefully with my new 3800 swap If you would like some help with anything, please let me know.

Now, please forgive me, I have to get this off my chest:

To those above saying to the effect "The show was so much better when Frank ran it".... I am sorry to say, but this is downright disrespectful!

A bit of a back story:

A few months before the 2015 Daytona Show, Frank posted that there would be no Daytona show, as he just no longer had the time to do it. I can understand this 100%, as he ran the show very successfully, for many years, and spent a LOT of time and effort in planning it. Everyone owes him a HUGE thank you to both his and his wife for spending countless hours over the years making the show the success that it has been.

When the show was not to be, Chuck from Central Florida Fiero's and I decided to do our best to put the show on. Patrick Roof, stepped up as well. I posted a thread, and created a professional web site, of which Chuck paid for the domain and hosting out of his pocket personally. The site had all of the locations, forms to register for the show, maps, calendar, interactive maps, schedule, hotel information, meeting times and locations and even a few contact numbers for people to call with questions. I had talked with Frank, who was gracious enough to take the time to offer ideas and advice to do the show.

I spent around 50 hours working on the website. If this were one of my billable sites for a client, I would have charged at least $3,500 for it. I created an email list and asked EVERYONE on that list for help with the planning of the show and volunteers. I also begged on the web page for volunteers. 2 people volunteered to be judges, none of which are the ones complaining in this thread above, as they did nothing what so ever to help, just complain that the show was not up to their standards.

I had emailed each and every person that was coming to the show, and those interested to please.....PLEASE just fill out the registration form on the website. These numbers are important for making reservations for the evening dinners, and for the cruise. If you reserve a space for 40 people at a restaurant for dinner, we are SOL if 96 show up. It is not fair to the rest of the group, or to the restaurant.

Only 1 or 2 people took the time to do this over the course of begging and pleading over the coming weeks in numerous emails. People only registered after they were sent an email saying they would not be able to go on the dinner cruise, as accurate numbers were needed, and saying that door prizes would only be given to those that registered. After all this, even then, only around 50% registered out of those that showed up for the show. Seems like everyone wants to go to the show, but filling out a simple form was just too much trouble.

In the weeks that we had to try to make a decent show, myself and Patrick worked tirelessly to get donations for raffles and door prizes. In the end, we had around $2,000 in raffle items, and around $1,500 in door prizes. A gift bag was made for each person that registered for the show. Custom judging sheets were made up for the judges, Each car has a customized paper for the dash for judging, showing the owners name and information, a custom logo was designed for the show, that Frank was able to get a local embroider to do up shirts with. The trophies were something new and unique, and of very high quality. Dash plaques were made up as well.

Throughout the weekend we had a VERY nice cruise visiting 2 different state parks, springs and lakes. We did laps around the New Smyrna NASCAR track warming up the crowd for the Saturday race (See the video below), We had breakfast at the Sugar Mill, Go Karts, a dinner cruise (Unfortunately rained out), we had dinners planned as a group in each night. The host hotel made available a car wash station with buckets, soap, and even 2 huge tubs of towels to dry off the cars.

Friday we had a sponsored (FREE) lunch on the 12th floor overlooking the ocean. Right after lunch we took the cars down on the beach, and a professional photo was taken of each car, and made available in 2 formats, a "post card" style photo, and the original photo.

At the end if the weekend we had around $300 cash from the raffle, after paying for the trophies, the $300 was donated to Todd Mulinax's wife shortly after his passing.

I am sorry that all of this was not good enough for some people. We did do our very best to try and make it a good Fiero gathering.

Here are some of the pages from the website from 2015:

Here is an interactive map that had clickable links to all events to show addresses and phone numbers for all things planned for the weekend. The stars marked the city that each person each person was coming from to attend the show.



The elusive registration form


Here was the schedule breaking down each days activities, with clickable links to a map and information for each item.


Lastly, here is a video of us taking to the New Smyrna NASCAR track on Saturday night. It was compiled from a bandstand camera, and multiple dash and hand held cameras:

On lap 5 , I lapped the pace car, you will not spin if you keep your foot in it. I had lots of fun running on a circle track again. I ran carts when I was younger. I have spun a cart out a few times, wee.
