I'd love to go, wouldn't be too far of a drive. But these meets that start early in the week, during my busy spring season are not an option for me at all. Plus I'm saving for the BPG nats in August in Columbus OH, haven't attended since 04. Have fun in Galena everyone... frown

Glad to have another Forum Member join the ROA! yay
Our starting point for Monday the 23rd will be Scottsburg, IN, we will probably get something there before we start for the day. I try to plan my stops so we don't end up starting out in morning traffic in a bigger city. I'm not real sure of the time as yet but we will be meeting up with others in Indy. sometime between 9 and 10AM, I can let you know when and where that will be when plans are more finalized. thumbsup

Sorry, let me elaborate. I define "spring" as a period of about 4 months at work, loosely March thru June/July when we conduct a very large majority of our annual sales activity. During that time period, there's no such thing as a vacation. Been that way for 18+ years for me. crazy Excellent place to work, otherwise.

Eric,
As of now, Michael the ROA Regional Coordinator for the Indy area, is planning on having breakfast on Monday morning before those of us coming in from the south meet up with him. What we have planned so far is meeting somewhere on the west side near I-74 and heading out from there around 10AM. Let me know if you want to get together with them for breakfast and I'll get you the info as soon as I know it for sure.

That would work out great for me. I'm on the West side and 74 is within 15min. Meet you guys there and head out with you but at some point, I'll break off and head home. I plan on going to the ROA later in the week.

Sheesh, why didn't they just put it in Wisconsin? No way in hell I could drive that far. I think it'd be neat to go to but the farthest I'd go would be Indianapolis or in the other direction Nashville. What all even happens there anyways?

It has been in Wisconsin, 2001, and in Nashville I think, but that was before I started going.
Usually have outings that the entire family can enjoy, sometimes presentations from one vender or another, and then a meeting of the Riviera Owners Association, and then a peer judged Riviera Show and an awards banquet.
Been a good time whenever I have been thumbsup

Indianapolis area members will be meeting for breakfast at 8:30AM Monday June 23rd, meeting place for breakfast is:

Steak n Shake
21 Maplehurst Dr
Brownsburg, IN 46112


My group and I will be getting there around 9:45AM, we will be leaving there by 10AM for Galena, IL for anyone interested.

Looks like the Steak n Shake is a little less than 15 miles north of you Eric. I haven't heard of anyone going from that area later in the week or I would have gotten you together with them.

Looking forward to meeting, see you then,

That sounds great.. can't wait to meet fellow Riv owners. Picking up the car tomorrow, dyno Thursday, and going in for body repair Monday of next week. I am postponing the complete repaint until after the meet. Completion of full paint will cut it too close (three weeks) and I don't want to miss out!

Missed you at the meet...Jack ... Eric?!?
I was at the Steak n Shake in Brownsburg Monday morning as advertised.

The meet was great, you all missed a great time!

Copied from the ROA website.
"Over 260 wonderful people, 112 beautiful cars, perfect weather, and a great location."


Here is a picture of most of the Show Field, around 70 Rivieras ranging from '63 to '99.
The GSs, Convertibles, and Modifieds are below this view and to the right.

As jimmyriv mentioned, I was pleasantly surprised to win the '86-'99 Class again this year,
with my Black '95.

I was kind of busy finishing putting the Riv together and a few finishing touches, so I didn't get too many pictures this year. There are plenty that can be seen at this link:

Next years Meet is in Sacramento, CA, 2700 miles from me, so I don't think I'll be going to that one. The next year, 2010, it will be back on the East Coast somewhere so you can bet I'll be there!

It makes me sick I missed it this year let alone not being able to meet everyone up in Brownsburg especially since it's 15min away. I had been looking forward to it several months prior- in fact, my father was going to ride along with me up for breakfast and we were going to ride with the "convoy" for an hour or so. I had even postponed my paint job until after the meet so I'd have my car avialable. Unfortunately, life throws you curveballs every now and then and mine came at the worst time. It looks like you had beautiful weather and a great turnout. Who knows, I might take the trip to CA next year (I bet we'll see some west coast customs!). Congrats on Best of 85-99 Class. You represented us well.

I have already began to think of my next project after paint and interior of my '97. I want another '64 but have you ever seen photos of the marine and drag raced motors that were "reversed"??.. a little hint of things to come...

Congrats on first place Randall, much deserved to be sure. It's been a crazy past six weeks for me. My wife ended up having a Kidney removed the weekend of the meet. There will be other meets, maybe next year. I've planned on going to the last three and something has always prevented the trip. 2006 my car was broken into, 2007 I was out of the country, and now 2008 kidney cancer. She is doing fine by the way. All cancer removed and she'll be back on her feet in five weeks, cancer free! We'll meet up eventually! smile

Good to hear, Jack. Glad she's on her way to a speedy recovery!

Congrats, Randall. The paint on you '95 looks brand new!!!
