2011 Pontiac Turbo Trans Am Reunion! Hebron, Ohio 7/30/2011

22 years later and this is it!! If you are a 1989 Pontiac Turbo Trans Am owner or just an enthusiast this is the event you want to be at. In conjunction with BPG http://www.buickperformancegroup.com/ This is the event you have been waiting for!

What: The official 1989 Pontiac Turbo Trans Am Reunion Party!

When: July 29th, 30th, and 31st. The show/display will be on Saturday July 30th.

Where: National Trail Raceway http://www.nationaltrailraceway.com/

It will be over 22 years that these cars have all been in one place at the same time and it's time to get them all back together again and be a part of it! There is a lot planned for this event and I will be adding to this thread in time as things fall into place.

The reason we set this date so far in advance is so everyone can get a truck and trailer lined up if needed to get to this event. You have plenty of time plan and we hope to see over 100 TTA's in one place again if not more!

There are other hotels in the area if you want to google the area. The host hotel sells out fast so you might want to get all your hotel information set up far in advance! There is security at the track 24/7 the entire event. So I would go right to the track with your car and trailer and leave them both at the track if your coming in for the weekend. Then you can just use your tow vehicle to drive back and forth to the hotel. The hotels are about a 10 min drive to the track. There is plenty of fast food and quality restaurants in the area.

Car Show and display:
Saturday July 30th

The car show will consist of a 100 point judging system. The BPG will give out trophies and we will have some special trophies as well. There will also be goodie bags to EVERY TTA that enters the show/display. There will also be a FREE special limited edition event t shirt given out to every TTA that enters the show and display!! This is my contribution to this event. Everyone loves a free t shit! The special limited edition shirts will also be for sale at the event. The folks at Indy 500 have already sent me some door prizes to give away as well for the event.

The reason we call this a show and display because it's all about the cars. Even if your TTA is no where near a show car it's all about bringing it out and putting it on display and giving everyone that attends this even to enjoy your TTA with all the other TTA's that are there. Not to mention to be a part of this once in a life time huge event!

Some of the special awards will be....

Furthest TTA Driven: The car that is driven to this event from the furthest point to Ohio.

Furthest TTA Hauled out:
The TTA that is hauled in from the furthest point to the event.

The Rarest TTA:
If one of the TTA verts show up and or the hard top TTA's present would be considered for this.

Best of show Stock:
The stock one that sets it's self apart from the others. Could be a car "still in the wrapper" Or just a super clean stocker.

Best of show modified:
The best modified TTA present. Get those race cars ready!

Lowest Mile TTA:
The TTA that is present with the lowest miles.

Highest Mile TTA:
The TTA that is present with the highest miles.

If you can think of any other special awards you would like at this event please let me know and we will consider them!

**One thing to keep in mind is that you MUST have a UL approved fire extinguisher in an easily accessible place in the vehicle! It does not have to be mounted in the car but it MUST be present! Some guys put them in front of the driver side tire or just lay it on the floor in the back on the passenger side. But there must be a UL approved extinguisher within reach that can be seen. This is one of the rules of the BPG and it's for everyone's safety.**

Special Guest:
I am working with the folks at the Indy 500 trying to get some special guest to come out to this event for autographs and such. I have some good leads but if you have some leads please let me know and I will pursue them as well. This will build as time goes along and I will update any new and solid information in this thread.

Rain Date: While there is no rain date for this event with BPG I have made special arrangements to get this event a rain date! I want to see this reunion go off next year no matter what! I just think no matter what these cars deserve an event like this no matter what mother nature may have in mind for us in 2011. I have teamed up with Sue of the Trans Am Nationals and IF we get rained out at the July 30th 2011 BPG event in Ohio we will piggy back with Sue and their crew of the Trans Am Nationals and have this event at their location in Dayton Ohio. I spoke with Sue and as of now they don't have a date set for the 2011 Trans AM Nationals but when they do make a date I will add it in this thread and that will be used ONLY if we get a rain out on the July 30th 2011 date in Ohio.

Ideas, Input, Suggestions, Questions: If you have any please post them in this thread. This thread will grow and change as this event gets closer. You can always PM me as well if you need to.

Can You Make This Event?:
If you can make this event or plan to please post in this thread. Let us know if your going to bring a car or just spectate. I would like to get a head count of the members and cars here that are going to attend just to get an idea. The BPG also has extended the offer that the TTA can also have their own race class at this event for you guys who like to race your TTA's. Their pay outs are one of the biggest around! So if your a show guy or a race guy we have you covered and that is why we chose this location and event to have this huge reunion at!

We need YOU! Anyone you know with a TTA or who may have one you need to pass the word around! We are working on a flyer for this event that I will post here and we will also make a .PDF of it so you can print a few out and take them to the track or shows with you and when you see other TTA owners just drop one in his car or let him know about this event! In the coming months I will submit this reunion on as many car sites as I can. You can link back to this thread as well. But we need each and every owner to get the word out and let everyone know!

I have reached out to every car magazine out there to let them know about this event. I am working with Hemmings to cover it along with Pontiac Enthusiast magazine. Please don't be shy! If you know anyone or have any e-mail contact for any car magazine out there please let me know and I will pursue them as well. I want this event to show up everywhere!

Many TTA owners always say the TTA never gets the respect it deserves, will now it's time to give the TTA the respect it deserves and we all know that respect comes in numbers! So mark your calander and get your truck and trailer lined up and ready to go to be a part of one of the biggest showing of the 1989 Pontiac Turbo Trans AM ever in history at the 1989 Pontiac Turbo Trans Am reunion!!
