April is so freakin' early! I never have my wish-list of mods done that early in the year. (Though really I should say "that early in the decade".)

I'll consider coming to spectate & socialize, though.

For those who haven't gone - there are tons of interesting vehicles to see, many of them owned by members here. It's a great chance to put faces to the usernames.

Thanks, man!

I couldn't find the price of registration on the site, does anybody know offhand what it runs? Since I'll be driving up from sunny Florida, I'll be staying overnight on Thursday and I need to see what this trip will cost so I can run it by my accountant (wife).

Kind of a bummer about the 50 psi max tire pressure, but then again I'm so lazy about filling them up since I put the moon discs on that half the time I'm at 50 psi anyway. Since I just aired them up a week ago, If I don't air them up again between now and April they should be just about right!

***edit***

Found the price, FYI it's a hundred bucks which covers driver and navigator. It's kind of in fine print on the actual registration form.

I registered just now, so count me in this year!

I'll definitely be there. Maybe as a competitor this time. I'm thinking about entering with my parents' 2008 Prius.

In the past, Bob has offered a bit of a break on the registration fee for EcoModder members. If people want, I can ask if that offer still stands.

Sure, if you don't mind! Won't hurt my feelings to save a couple of bucks.
