This goes out to ANYONE and EVERYONE from ANYWHERE who would like to attend. Sorry for the late notice.
The Emerald Coast smart Car Club formally invites anyone who drives a smart or is interested in smarts to our October Meet & Greet. This one is going to be at a car show with a smart class as was mentioned before. What other car show have you seen that has a class especially for our smarts? This could be one of the first shows in the US to have a class devoted to smarts...if not the first. We'll have excellent shaded parking for entrants and non-entrants will be able to park VERY close to the show entrants (almost on the show field). Last year there was 290 cars total at this show - parking is limited (but not for smarts )
What makes this so special is that there is actually a lot to do as the show is held at the Air Force Armament Museum near Eglin Air Force Base, FL (Fort Walton Beach, FL) in the panhandle. The show is sponsored by Hurlburt Field, FL which is a Special Operations base.
Lots of neat things to see. 25 different aircraft to include the FIRST EVER production C-130 (which is now an AC-130 gunship), also a SR-71 plus plenty of other neat airframes. How about a picture of your smart next to the world's BIGGEST bomb? The MOAB - 21,000lbs, is maybe 100 feet from where the smarts will be parked - don't worry, it isn't live.
Once again, come on out. Hotels are plentiful and you can make a little vacation out of it as well. Destin, FL is about 15 miles from where the show is. Hopefully we'll have about around 20-30 of our club members attend plus whoever else wants to come. This is an informal get-together. Just a fun time for smart lovers - no obligation to enter the show if you don't want to.
