Bill,
I would hope for more than 50 cars.Could it be these cars are so active being shuffled around in auctions that no more than 50 would be available?
I think in 1989?there were more than that in the park.

Mike,
I have heard the local hotels/motels gouge like mad during this event.
If this is true we will have none of it.We are more than willing to pay fair prices but will not support being gouged by any of them.
What say you or anyone else who sees this post.

We meant 50 [u:3rqzrpbz]Duesenbergs[/u:3rqzrpbz] which would be incredible!

Pebble Beach has only rounded up 32 I think in one time. We got over 70 at the 2010 DDR.

As far as the hotels, it's simple supply and demand. That's how this country operates.

It's possible to stay in nearby Kendallville or Fort Wayne if you want to pay a lesser rate. You certainly don't have to pay the Labor Day Weekend Rates if you don't want to.

Hotel accommodations should never prevent any of our members from coming.

Supply and demand?In some instances it's supply and gouge.As I said,we can afford it but refuse to support it.We have stayed in Van Wirt Ohio and it's an easy drive up 101 to Rt8.

I usually stay in Fort Wayne which is an even easier drive - 20 minutes. The Fairfield Inn in Fort Wayne was very comfortable this year. No problem with Auburn hotels, which I patronize regularly and enjoy the rest of the year, but I simply don't find the convenience worth the extra $$$ that weekend.

We are attending the Glidden Tour in Defiance Oh. the end of Sept. All the hotels in town are booked for the tour. The rates are $60. $75. and $100 per night depending on the hotel you chose. Not gouging.

Mike,
I know those aren't gouging prices because this morning I booked a room in Lawrenceburg Indiana for $75. I called a motel near Auburn some time ago and was quoted $160.I asked what it would be when the car people were not around and was told $60.THAT is gouging or desperation and I won't support either.
