HEADS UP! FREE CRUISE IN - DEVEREAUX- KAISER CAR MEET IN SARASOTA

Up to 2000 show cars attending with a large car corral. I haven't attended for the last couple years due to inclement weather, but hoping it will be nice this year. It's been held in Lakewood Ranch for the last few years, but it seems it's now been moved to Sarasota County Fairgrounds.

My friend in Bradenton tells me about it every year. Maybe this year I'll actually get off my ass and go.
He would tell me what a nice event it is. But again that's at the original venue.

Yeah, it's roughly a 3 hr drive for me...maybe a little less, depending on my speed. It's been awhile since I made that trip. If I recall, I would get off at the SR 70 exit.
I think the new location is a one or two exits south of that. Not much further, but further. First, we have to get to that weekend, and then we need palatable weather. The last two years, not so much.

No, probably my Oldsmobile. The Porsche hasn't been on a road trip in quite a few years...well... more than a few. I could take the wagon, though.

Yeah, I notice every time there's an event planned, the weather ends up turning to shit.
This year is no exception. It's had some of the screwiest weather that I can remember.
