It is a great show.

Right now I do not know if I am going. Kids have school conflicts with a nation history test.

Ronzo may also be filming with his WC in a Movie.

I will post our location as we get closer.

Well one of my fellow HMV collectors, Ronzo, is not going to Aberdeen. He has become one of the "beautiful people" and is busy baby-sitting his Dodge WC-51 in a Paramount movie shoot at some Mental Hospital in Massachusetts. (I believe that the Movie shoot thing may be a BS cover for his real reason there as he does own about 10 HMV's.)

So just 2 of us will be going to Aberdeen this year.

We are in spaces Blue area K/J 9 & 10. Look us up and feel free to use that as a CP to get out from the rain on Friday. We will have a couple of those easy up things there.

See you there.

Bill

Ronzo has indeed become more "beautiful" from his stint with the other "Beautiful people". :D Besides, who needs Aberdeen when you are rubbing elbows with Leonardo and the other stars.

His WC51 is now worth twice as much since Leonard has sat in the back!
Lets see: Leonardo, Aberdeen.... Leonardo, Aberdeen.... Hmmmm Tough one. Oh yea, throw in some bribe $$... Hmmm Can buy lots of HMV parts or even whole HMVs :D
