University of MD College Park Car Show 4/26

Massive fundraising car show. $1 or a canned food item for entry. Basically everyone parks in a giant lot and it becomes a show. Lots of food, dyno, etc.

Mostly imports, but all makes and models are welcome. Definitely a Japanese dominance though. I'm going and would like some Euro support.

4/26 from noon to 8pm. Right off I-95/495.

If we get a group, we can request to park as a group (since last year they sorted by make). Need to know soon about that though.

I live right around the corner.........count me and the C55 in for the fun. If we don't get a big MB turn out, I can ask someone to drive the "other" car over as well (ML 500).

Actually in Kennett Square (just North of MD). Just did a mapquest and see that it is a bit further than I originally thought. For some reason I had it closer to Rising Sun than DC.

Mapquest isn't the greatest; do you estimate it at being the targeted 2 hr trip?

For me, 2 hours. And I'm about 30 min from you (Newark, DE), so about 2hr 30min for you.
