    Cool. I can probably handle the front (did front/rear on my Grand Cherokee), so that would save some labor. Would rather have someone do the rear. Think McNew's can handle that Drew? A lot closer than Fairfield.

    Thanks John! :smileup:

    Did anyone happen to take a pic stopped at Gate 2 when we had to sign the release/liability paper? Looking for a sort-of wide shot showing some of the cars and the Watkins Glen gate.

    Something like this only zoomed out a bit:

    Jim,

    McNew's probably can handle the work, but I feel more comfortable having the dealer work on the suspension and follow up alignment. McNew's does not perform alignments.

    Thanks guys!

    Hmm...I dunno if I trust Hanover Dodge and I'm running out of vacation days to burn which would allow me to get up to Fairfield. Pity those guys are always tied up with the dyno on the day of the car show or I'd get them to throw the back one on and do the alignment then. Maybe I'll just wait until Spring when I'll have a refill of fresh vacation days to use. No rush, really. And who knows, might be able to catch a sale around Thanksgiving/Christmas. :4-dontknow:

    Jim, If your looking for a dealership to do work in the York/ Lancaster area check out Keller bros dodge in Lititz. I bought my car from them and have nothing but great things to say about them. I live in york and wouldn't let stettler's touch my car so I understand your hesitancy. Keller Bros is awesome though.

    Thanks for the info Jason! As much as I like going up to Fairfield, it sure would be nice to have someone local I could trust and depend on. I've read a lot of bad things about Stetler's...both their service and salesmen.

    Malooms - There is no way to make it happen this year! Watkins Glen is undergoing resurfacing. Except for all out track events they are concerned about the fresh oil - anything we organized would not even allow the front cars to run at more than a true 55.

    I'll be at Carlisle this year - Staying at Colton Motel 717 334 5514 in Getty'sberg Friday night through Sunday. I set up a discount rate if you tell them you are with he Keystone Challengers (registered with them for Carlisle too). Will have Hunter, Brenda, my daughter Janelle and the Holcomb family with their new GWE RT. We'll spend the day at Getty and see everyone Saturday!

    If anyone wants to go to the Syracuse Nationals on Sunday July 19th let me know.....sorry guys - lets see what next year look like!

    That really sucks! Thanks for trying Bob, we all know without your time and dedication, the past years wouldn't have happened. However this setback cannot put an end to our gathering next year and years to come. In not sure how others feel but my son and I really look forward to this and have been there from the beginning and it has grown every year..I am hoping that my town of Brewerton (suburb of Syracuse) will have completed what is supposed to be a state of the art race track. If so then maybe we can incorporate it in our outing I will be following the progress and what they offer a group like ours.anyway ill miss seeing our fleet of dodges and wish u all a great summer, and look forward to seeing u next year.unless I see some of you at the Syracuse nationals...

    Good luck at the Colton, Bob...what a dump! A guy in my division of the AOH used to manage the place. He was a "character", to be kind.

    Glad to hear it...I'd say we're disappointed that it didn't happen this year, but honestly, the way things have gone since we bought our house and moved, I haven't had much time for car stuff so far. Missed the Gettysburg cruise & Moparpalooza (judging by comments on facebook, I might have dodged a bullet anyway), never got things together to go down to Pettyfest and I'm not even sure I'll get to Carlisle. I think it's likely we'll come over as spectators but doubtful that I'll bring my car in.

    That stinks watkins glen isn't happening. My wife and I had a blast last year! I'm not sure if you've been in contact with any of the Keystone Challengers group Bob but we'll have a tent a Carlisle so feel free to hang there or at least stop by and say hi!

    Will this happen in 2016? The Syracuse Nationals are the same weekend as the Carlisle show. July 15-17.

    checking things out now actually...it will be a few weeks. we need 26 challengers to make this event go.....Syracuse is all grown up as a show now....I hate the fact they are going head to head with Carlisle - could hurt our numbers significantly! need to hear from folks that will DEFINITELY attend if we can make it go!

    Bob,
    I'm already committed to attending the Carlisle show. What about the CNY Mopar show on June 26th as an option? We could do the Finger Lakes tour plus the Glen on Saturday. And then attend the Mopar show on Sunday.
