Hershey Swap Meet April 22, anyone going?

Hey guys,
As a former 944 Turbo guy, I always planned to make the trip from Northern VA to Hershey for the annual swap meet, and usually had a couple friends caravan.

Anyone here planning to attend from Northern VA and interested in caravanning? Or at least meeting up at the show?

I am not, but wanted to compliment your interior, by far the nicest I've seen in red

Where did you get your steering wheel from?

Thank you, sir. I actually got the wheel from a company I met at Hershey last year. Exotic Car Gear. They took my stock wheel and modified it as you see.

I didn't know what that swap meet was but after looking it up I'm seriously thinking of going. It looks very interesting. Where are you in Northern Virginia?

Potomac Falls, can meet anywhere between Great Falls, Leesburg, or anywhere on the way up 15.

Truly, the Hershey meet is 100% worth the drive. There are tons of vendors and cars to ogle. I am going up Friday and staying overnight. If nothing else, come up Saturday morning, check the cars out and head home. From NoVA, it's under 2 hours.

You are literally right around the corner from me. I'm in the Lowe's Island neighborhood.

Not from Va but I'm planning on going. Weather has been looking good but a bit nippy for the AM. May have to put the top down Friday so I can drive top down early Saturday morning.

I will be up Friday afternoon. Staying at Quality Inn Hershey. I'm up for whatever. Had a great steak at the horseshoe casino last year and if nothing else materializes I will be enjoying that.

Ok, my sister lives in the area. Troegs brewery is a good spot if weather is nice. It would be good to see your mods. We can finalize something on Thursday.

I'll be there, but with my wife's X5 since both she and our son will be with me. If anyone needs something that a SpecBoxster doesn't have, let me know and I can bring it with me...seats, soft top, trim pieces, etc.
