Gary, I am not sure there was any "display" for the car, other than a set of ramps which are still used for current displays :confused

In fact, the ramps now, may even be slightly different, as that was the first show they were used, and tweeks have been made since.

DOes anyone else recall a display?? :confused

Chris, In the CD that you made for me there is a pictures of the car with a display in front of it at BG. Just woundering if it was something that I might be able to get a hold of. Thanks.:)

Are you talking about the sign, that was with the car?
Call Callaway Cars!
I last seen the Sign in their Lobby.

John, you are absolutely correct :cool

We all had our cars on display - for some reason, I was thinking there was some elaborate display that Gary had thought of - like a backdrop, etc.

...it is true that each car has a sign board as well. It is funny, as I looked at ours for the SNAT and it said it was a coupe, LOL :chuckle

That was a GREAT Display of Callaways - one that the Bloomington Gold folks still hear about! :upthumbs

I should have said `display sign' sorry for the confusion. :ugh Remember seeing it in the one picture, no big deal.

Very nice! All of the cars look awsome. Chris, I did see your cars at Carlilse, took some pics. I wanted to ask you about them but I know you were busy. I am interested in leaning more about the different models that Callaway produced. Hope I can make it to Carlilse this year for a couple of days and spend more time talking to you guys. Thanks.:cool

Gary, I know you had mentioned you were moving further south - are you still planning on making Carlisle??

You should indeed try to make the show - while the showfield can be a bit busy with all the people around, we tend to kick back afterwards, each day and just hang out. I kow that it is the BEST SHOW out there and the folks I have bet there, are great! :upthumbs

Additionally, any word on the sign??
