Hey guys, we just finished the first go around, and already nailed down the the date for the 2nd Annual Oktoberfest Show!


National Parts Depot (NPD) just finished hosting a new All-GM show this past Saturday, October 14th 2006, at the beautiful Silver Springs park in Ocala, Florida! We saw almost 500 cars enter the park, and there were many clean examples of GM's early and late from bone-stock to highly modified. Quite a few nice cars, and even a few Novas came out, including an LT1 swapped 71 I believe.


Just for some background, NPD has held a Mustang and Fords show in January at Silver Springs, a nature theme park in Ocala, Florida, for the past 12 years. We've always experienced great turnouts for this show (over 1,000 cars this year including 4 Ford GTs and 1,400 pre-registered), plus the attraction of having other things to do besides check out the cars, such as glass-bottom boats to check out the natural springs, a kids petting zoo, and more. Check out http://www.silversprings.com for more on the park and all its attractions.

We've already nailed down the date for our 2nd annual GM show! It will take place on Saturday October 6th 2007, and the first 1,000 cars to pre-register by September 29th 2007 will receive free entry into the park for car, driver and one passenger. Any entry registering after September 29th, the day of show or beyond the 1,000-car threshold may purchase the show package for $17.00 per car, which still includes passes for driver and one passenger. PLEASE NOTE: If you are planning to attend but not show a car, you'll be subject to the standard park entrance fee of $32.99/general, $23.99 for children ages 3-10.

Registration is available for all GM models early or late, as well as all GM-powered street rods and exotics.

We will most likely have the registration form up on our website www.npdlink.com by May-June 2007.

High Performance Pontiac, Super Chevy and Chevy High Performance will be in attendance at this event as well.


Shoot me an e-mail at [email protected] if you have any questions.
I have a few photos from our Ford & Mustang Show 2006 are here (if you want to see how we pack the place and park layout): http://community.webshots.com/album/553024330VCxAiI

Also check out a few photobuckets albums from participants of this year's GM show (mostly 4th gen Camaros/Firebird but nice rides):

Re: 2nd Annual All-GM show in Florida October 6th 2007

Cruise and dyno information:

Friday morning a cruise to Cedar Key from NPD’s main warehouse in Ocala will happen. Participants are encouraged to start gathering around 8 am, and we shoot for a 9 am departing time (130 cars did the Mustang & Fords show cruise in January 2007). A short trip up Interstate 75 north (about 5 miles) leads to county road 326, 19 and 40 cruising through Ocala’s horse farm country and easy driving speeds on the way to scenic Cedar Key. The trip takes about 1-1/2 hours each way, and when arriving in Cedar Key (a nice fishing community with a few good local eating establishments), most participants eat lunch then return to Ocala around 1-2 pm to either stop by NPD and view the car collection (over 120 cars), find a hotel, do whatever (you get the idea). NPD will also host a Dyno Day with VMP Tuning making a visit with their mobile Dynojet chassis dyno. Participants could make two pulls with A/F ratio for $60 (some cars with turn-downs and diesels slightly higher on cost), and the highest pull received a goodie bag from NPD. 16 cars participated in a little over 5 hours time at the January show.
