Anyone planning on heading down to Mrytle Beach 2005 this year? It's July 25-31st...at least I think those are the dates..I know it is the last week in July. Just curious. I am going as it stands now..so, wondered if anyone else would be there. Probably caravan down with a few other Cobra's from Maryland!

Oh I imagine I will be there. I've been the past two years. Maybe if we can get enough SCMC members to go we can setup a booth to recruit folks?? :thumbsup: :D

I am going with my girlfriend. We will probably be following some other Cobra owners from the area down on the 23/24th and return the 31st. Not sure where we are staying but, those that decide to go let me know..we can pass cell phone numbers so, we can perhaps meet up one night...

im getting a discount on a hotel room from another website, but not too sure about the "quality" of the rooms...im not picky, but my wife is ;) ...I imagine if we can get enough definite interest we can coordinate something with a hotel down there...by they way, i plan on heading down after work on the 27th, so we'll have thurs, fri, sat, and sun.

I made my reservations for here http://www.holidaysandssouth.com/

It is 4 miles from the host hotel..on the strip where all the stangs cruise and right on the beach!

Call and ask for Jeff..you can get a 10% discount. It's only $672.00 for the week for a 1 bedroom effiecency with oceanview. That's awesome!

1-800-448-4439!!

See you there!

Sounds like that there will be a AutoX held the same day as the car show. Both will be done at the Convention Center. The AutoX will be held in the section of the parking lot where some of the the folks were doing doughnuts at last year's event.

Beerkat..a question...I hope the answer is good...how is the Holiday Sands South Hotel...is this place okay?

Cobra330 Most of the hotels are OK. I have not stayed in any of them so I have no first hand knowelgde of them. I live on the other end of the beach, North end vs, South end form where you are talking about. If you want ot be close to the Convention Center there is a La Quinta on 21st ave N that or if you want to stay up on the north end ther is a Holiday Inn Express and a Fairfield ( I think that what it is). the Holiday Inn is in resturant row and the Fairfield is near the Hooters @ Colonial Mall. That where some of the cruise in where last year.

Sorry I could not be of more help.

2411 South Ocean Blvd...

I really do appreciate it!

I drove down that way today and it looks be nice. Has great view of the ocean. You are at the far end of Ocean Blvd. so you may not have to much cruising traffic. It took about 25 min. to go from where you are staying up to the Colonial Mall, of course there is not much traffic at this time of year so you might add anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes during the summer just depends on the traffic. You are close to a full service car wash on Kings Hwy. (BUS 17) it at the end of 25th Ave S. which is you best way to and from 17.

Hope this helps

I was on the Mustang Week Staff for the first 3 years (I'm "retired" now) and I stayed at the Holiday Sands each year. I actually stayed in their cheapest rooms, but was satified. If you are going to have your spouse/significant other along, you will want to be in the building on the beach side of the street. It's newer and a bit nicer. I found that I really only used the hotel room as a place to sleep and clean up. ALSO and most importantly, the Holiday Sands South provides a car wash area for those staying there!

Sure..we will leave sometime during the day on July 23rd..and go about halfway..then get there on July 24th....and then head back the following Sunday. As the time gets closer..I will let you know where you can meet us along the way. We have a few coming from PA..that will be bringing their motorhome..as they are towing thier Cobras! I will be driving mine!

My motor home is out having the blower ported so it will be unavailable. :D Hence I will be driving my Cobra.

BTW: I know you miss the old yellow Cobra but... When are you going to put a picture of your new ride in your avatar?

I'll be going for the weekend and David Lewis said he is coming down from Wilmington for at least Saturday.

If the guys don't get something on hold, I guess I'll just drive down there Friday morning after I get off of work and just stay awake the whole weekend:D :eek: I've done it before, so won't be nothing new......as long as I'm doing something I'll be good to go!:thumbsup:

I might be starting in Columbia, SC if the company I work for gets this project they are bidding on. Otherwise I'll be leaving from Asheville probably on Thursday night. I'll be at the car show on Friday and at the cruise in on Saturday. We'll head home on Sunday, what time will depend on whether I'm working or not. :D ;)

Yeah, I am planning on being that Saturday and maybe Sunday as well. For once, an event is close enough to me that I can make it there in about an hour or so. Since I am so close, I am planning on just driving back Saturday night and then depending on what else is going, I might drive back down again Sunday. Besides, somebody has to babysit Greg :rotf: .

Well, last time I checked there were 24 hours in a Friday(in case you forgot) and since I will probably have to work, it would be helpful to know which one of those hours you were picking on coming down. Damn old people, forget everything, Ginko Biloba does work you know :D :D :D :p :p :p :rotf: :rotf: :rotf:.

Well IF you had taken the time to read ALL of my post I said I was attending the car show on Friday. From that you could have gone to the Mustang Week site to see when the car show was, but I know you're computer challenged so here it is for you!

Friday, July 29, 2005

2nd Annual Car Show at Myrtle Beach Convention Center. Registration from 11am-12pm. Show from 12pm-5pm, Awards at 6pm.

Kids not only are they LAZY but they don't pay attention to the details. AND I'm sorry but no amount of "HERBS" will assist you with these problems. ;) ;) :D :D :rotf: :rotf: :rotf:

Read all of your post? Now where is the fun in that?:p

Well, I am gonna ASSUME that you will be there all day so, I will leave work about noon to head down there. Looks like I will be coming by myself, I asked Cat to come but she refuses to spend a whole day looking at cars. I tried to goad her into it by asking her if she was really gonna let me go down to Myrtle Beach for Mustang Week where there will be tons of women completely unsupervised. She looked at me and said "Honey, you are going to be so focused on looking at cars that more than likely you are going to forget women exist!". Ahh well, I tried but she knows me too well.

I'll be at the Holiday Sands South Hotel....hopefully I'll meet some of you...More than likely I'll try to wear a Cobra Hat...in yellow or black with yellow trim so...you can try to find me...although with as many people that are going to be there..it still may be hard to do!

Well one of the partners in the consulting firm I work for called me today. I have to travel for the next three weeks to Dallas. I'll be getting home on the 28th at 11:00 PM so I guess the show on Friday is out I'll be driving down for just Friday night and Saturday night now....BUMMER! I may actually stay until Monday if I don't have to go anywhere that week! :thumbsup:
