I figured I'd add this here instead of in a build thread.....

If anyone wants to meet up before the show to caravan in so we can have a row of datsuns let me know... I'm trying to figure out the best place to meet and what time..

Let me know if you have suggestions too ...

I was looking earlier today. It's not terribly far out of the way to meet out by the intersection of 95 and route 2 or 3. I think I saw a Starbucks out by rt 3.

 

Or we find something closer to the the museum and meet there

I'm all registered....

 

I dont know the area so as long as it works for anyone else, that Starbucks is fine by me, I'll be coming down rt2 to 95....

I'll register this week

 

I figured you would be coming down 2 and it looked a pretty easy spot for me to get to. Just a few more exits down 95

So I figure this is relevant too...

What time should we meet?

I think the show says 10, but I also saw 930... maybe that's when they open the gates to park the cars.... 

 

So with that said, not sure if this is the place you were thinking demo, but I think it's the best.... tons of parking....

 

Starbucks

12 market Pl dr. 

Waltham ma..

 

You, me and Santiago would have a 45 to 50 minute ride to the Starbucks and then it's a 25-30 minute ride to the Lars Anderson museum....

 

In my opinion I say we meet around 830-845 and plan on leaving Starbucks by 9 to be there for 930.....

Rt 2 in Waltham works great for me. I used to live near there in Watertown. I suggest leaving Waltham and heading towards Newton to get there via backroads.

 

Getting to the show earlier is better, or else you get put in the lower lawn with all the Subarus 🙄 I usually try parking next to other old stuff like the roadsters or 240Z’s.

Do you know when they start letting you park?

 

And the location is sort of near route 2....

It would take us 35 40 minutes to get to the show with back roads..... 

Should we try to meet closer?

Opinions on when to meet up?

Share this post

Another option....

 This is east of newton and north of Brookline.....

About 12 minutes to the show on back roads..... 

 

Area called chestnut hills....

This spot is next to the movie theater... 

Just looking for a place that has parking....

I drive right through there to get to the show every year. Could do that as well. It’s up to the other guys though. I’m fairly flexible as long as it’s not big time highway.
 

I strongly suggest getting there at 9:30.

I think this new spot might work better, closer to the show and it looks like we would all have to go past it anyhow.... just get your coffees first..... 

So maybe meet 845 - 9

Plan to head towards the show by 915... 

That should put us at the gates just before 930.....

 

Let me know if everyone like this idea... also should we get together and to the show 15 minute sooner or do the time work?

Sounds good to me! 

 

Still need to register... maybe ill do that right now. 

 

There is a slight chance I'll be in the truck.. but more then likely the 510... just depends on how this weekend goes and if I can get to the DMV next weekend... which is unlikely.

I'm hoping for the truck but obviously the 510 will be just as good to see ....

Registered! Put the 510 down as my vehicle

 

We'll see how the truck goes... hopefully picking up the driveshaft tomorrow AM, and finishing the dash harness tonight. Even if I get it running this weekend though... its the alignment, exhaust and registration that will be the hard stuff to squeeze in next week.

There’s a Starbucks not far from Larz that we could stop at beforehand. I think it’s on the edge of a small rotary.

I saw that place I just figure the parking would be a pain for us ... I zoomed in on google maps and alot of the Starbucks have very little parking..... this why I suggested the spot I did... 

Trying to keep it so we can meet without being in the way.... should be 4 of us...

Whatever works for me - but I do like the idea of getting coffee before hand... can't remember if they had some for sale at the show or not....  I can always stop somewhere else on my way in though if we meet by Davios.

 

Looking at the starbucks thats close to Larz Anderson - I agree with crashtest that parking lot is small and could be a bit tight depending on how busy it is. 

 

With what Mainer said I think we should get there early... last time I went to cars and coffee there I barely made it in and got stuck down on the hill... yea it took three tries to get up to my parking spot hahahaha....

Hey demo there are 2 Starbucks really close to that location.... 1 just across the street in the cheese cake factory parking lot.....

 

Screenshot-20190929-174816-Maps.jpg

 

Do we wanna stick with the hammond pond trail entrance or we should meet in the parking lot next to the cheese cake factory and Starbucks......

 

Also I'm thinking we should plan on meeting between 830 and 9 and leaving shortly after 9 to head to the show....

There are actually 3.... hahaha... another stand alone one across the street from cheese cake factory --- 210 Boylston St #13, Chestnut Hill, MA 02467 ---

 

I say we meet here  -- 210 Boylston St #13, Chestnut Hill, MA 02467 -- should be plenty of parking and easy off/on from 9 east. Option 2 would be hammond pond trail and I'll just hit the starbucks ahead of time.


Looks like i'll be in the 510... spent the weekend working.... errr dealing with the wiring on the truck and it definitely won't be ready.More on that in my truck thread...
