Barrett-Jackson - Scottsdale

A few of us have been discussing meeting up at the Barrett-Jackson Auction, tentatively on Saturday, January 19.

So I thought I'd throw a thread up to see if anyone else might be interested in joining our motley little crew, which to date includes mcbear, Shane and myself.

I'd go but I'm a bit homophobic.




Do you think you could get McBear to stay home that day?

And you're not afraid it would turn into a brawl and then a collector car burning riot?

Dang, we were hoping you would have an empty reefer available to haul toys back East. Though frankly I don't think I have any more room.

And don't worry about the homophobic part, now anytime I go into a public restroom I yell in to ask if there are any Republican politicians in there first. So, we have a plan to keep you safe.

McBear,
Kentucky

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
