This Weekend! - Pontiac Southern Nationals

Howdy everyone,

Just a reminder that this weekend is the Pontiac Southern Nationals. It's going to be on the grounds of the Cavanaugh Flight Museum in Addison (Dallas) Texas. The cars are going to be mingled with the WWII vintage airplanes, some of which will be available for flights (for a price of course).

I even heard rumors of an actual race between a GTO and a P-40 Warhawk. There might even be video of the result showing at the event

I was down at Keller's in Dallas Saturday night and met some of the DAPA members who told me about the show. It looks like a blast and I'm trying to re-arrange my work schedule to see if I can make it at least on Saturday.

Hope to see y'all!

WWII warbirds and musclecars.....what a great combination. If I were anywhere close to local, I'd attend that one for sure. Looking forward to pics/vids!!

I hope so too, but at least there'll be plenty of shade inside the hangars, huge fans, and other spots readily available with a/c.

Here's a teaser video, shot from a looong distance
There was a WFAA videographer there covering it as well, and -supposedly- they're going to run the spot -sometime- on the news today.

EDIT: Mrs. Bear called me and said they DID air it on the midday news today Hopefully it will be on tonight too.

They ran the video today at noon on the local news channel. I had to work to copy it and transform it into a file I could upload, but maybe "someone" has the technology to get a better quality copy.

Anyway, here it is:
