Ghost States: Anyone Home?

Am I to correctly assume that the New England area has barely any support for Impalas via car shows, meets, track days, and the likes?

It's awfully quiet 'round these parts ...

I think it may be time to go get a car wash and clean, and register for the "All-American Sunday" event. Would be nice to see how my Impala does on the Autocross.

ACK!! We are going to the Saturday event. I know we won't make Sunday! That sucks! It does sound like a great weekend thing to do! Maybe I'll plan it better next year....

It's alright. I was too late to register for the All-American Sunday, so more then likely Ann and I will just go to see the cars on Saturday. Still have to do a little convincing to her because it's about a two hour drive.

I showed up on Saturday and couldn't find parking. Literally was told that there were no parking spots left, and I wasn't going to pay an arm and a leg to park at the closest spot. I missed out on this event, but I'm glad to see that maybe there's a bit of interest in New England.
