The Sacramento Autorama has again Welcomed Hot Rod Boats to the list of over 500 Hot Rod Vehicles to be diplayed at Cal Expo this Weekend! We have a few members who will be showing of their BaddAzz Boats! I know for sure the 2 Boats in the Background Picture here, at Vintage JetBoats.com will both be there, to admire! So go check it out! I'll post up some pictures Sunday, after I spend the day checking out all the "Wicked Machines" that will be on display!

Well, not sure if Deb & I are going to this event or not! Gave the guy a call, he has 3 cars in the show, he found out he got 6 passes, not 6 tickets for each day! Sigh, some people. So take lots of pictures!

I might be able to help you out if Bill or I aren't using ours? I know I need to be out there Sunday for tear down and I'm not real sure if I'm gonna make it out any other times.

I talked with Deb, she said its no big deal (her going that is) So, I could ride out there with you Sunday and give you a hand if you needed. That would give me a little chance to look around too!
