Is that for every old/custom/rod/yank that arrives or just the first one on the day?

That's for any car, not just the first one. Woody's not silly, he knows there'll only be a smattering of em, lol! Especially after the foot of snow we got on the Sunday last year....oops, did I say that.....:S

Yep, that's a free pair of tickets to anyone arriving in a cool car :tup:

Is there any chance of a bit more space between the booths this year. I really wanted to enjoy the whole experience last year but just trying to move around inside the venue was a 'mare.

I suggest you ask Woody for more space.......
To be fair, last year, only the second show so far, had apparently twice as many people go to it....it was mental! But just one of those things....just take your time wandering round, get there early to avoid the crowds as they say...;)

A quick request to anybody who will be taking a camera to the event. If anyone is practicing traditional Japanese style tattooing (in other words not using a machine, but sharpened sticks) over hte weekend could you get me some decent pictures of it being done.
If it works out there be a photo credit on the pictures when they get used in a magazine. I would go myself, camera in hand but I've been double booked over the weekend.
Any one who gets pictures and is willing to share them please contact me via PM.

Thanks
