Well, I posted this earlier and it disappeared, so we'll try again.  It's time to spread the word among the AMC and Jeep faithful for the 7th Annual East Texas AMC Cruise-In, June 9, 2018, hosted here in Lufkin, TX.   For those unfamiliar with this event, click one of the links below from 2012 through 2017 to take a peek at what you've missed:

Be sure to scroll through all the above links to check out the different picture albums and video links and postings.

I can't really sum it up better than I already have in years past, so this may look familiar:
This has been described as the most comfortable car event most folks have ever attended.  We'll have plenty of sun and plenty of shade, cars are parked on grass, not hot pavement (unless we have to substitute the event location due to weather, which thankfully hasn't been required yet), plenty of good food, plenty of good friends, plenty of good cars and Jeeps, plenty of parts, this is the AMC place to be in June.  Last year our swap meet area was packed with parts.  There were some really good parts sales/swaps/deals being made on everything from '47 Jeep parts to Rebel decklids.  Always remember, whether it is a trailered show car, a survivor original, a work in progress or even if it's not running or you think it's just too ugly, "Drive it, Drag it or Tow it!", all are welcome!  And we mean that.  Please, bring them out and share them, people really do want to see and appreciate your vehicle.  We have had folks come in from several surrounding states to participate and attend.  See if you can come and win the Long Distance award this year (a hint: you may have to come from further than Mississippi Wink.)
 
A little bit about our location.  Lufkin, TX has a population of over 35,000 and is a hub for East TX and the surrounding area, fairly centrally located between:

120 miles north on Hwy 59 of downtown Houston

85 miles south on Hwy 69 from downtown Tyler

175 miles south-east from downtown Dallas

165 miles east of Waco

125 miles east of College Station

120 miles south-west from downtown Shreveport, LA

160 miles west of Alexandria, LA

175 miles south of Texarkana, TX/AR

300 miles north-east of San Antonio


We look forward to seeing all our old friends and making new ones too.  More details and our show flyer will follow.

Feel free to contact us with any questions: Reagan Ratliff: 936/225-0569 or ratliffr@icloud.com

I believe you must have 30 points to post a picture. It won't take long. Where you located?

Good to have you on the Forum and we'd certainly love to have you attend in June.  Don't know how the picture posting qualifications work, but you can private message (PM) me your pics or email to ratliffr@icloud.com and I'll get one up on the event posting for you.  What AMC will you be bringing and where are you located?

Interest is ramping up. We've got our Mississippi friends coming, we've got a caravan of folks from Ft. Worth and Dallas coming, we've got Houston folks coming, don't be left out.  Here is the flyer for this years' event.  Thanks to Tom and Janice Taylor for putting it together.

I am posting the event registration form below.  We need to get a head count on attendance as soon as possible so we can plan for and determine things like how much lunch my dear wife Misty will be preparing (those that have attended know to come hungry and you will be fed well Thumbs Up).  Please, print out, complete, scan and e-mail the form to me at ratliffr@icloud.com  If you are unable to do that please print it out and complete it and take a picture and text me the completed form to 936-225-0569.  If you are unable to do that contact me to let me know how many will be attending and bring your completed form on June 9th.  
I will be putting out some event t-shirt info soon as well.  
Remember, we have an area for parts sale and swap, so even if you can't bring your vehicle you could still help someone else out with that much needed part.  
We look forward to seeing everyone again this year and to seeing some new faces too.
Reagan

The hotel listed on our event flyers for the ETCI has experienced a fire that will have them out of commission for at least a couple of months, so if you had already made reservations with the Comfort Inn Suites at 4402 S 1st St, Lufkin, TX 75901and have not been contacted by them to change your hotel you need to do so now.  I spoke with two of the other hotels at this location (there are four together in that one spot) the Hampton Inn and Suites  https://www.google.com/search?q=lufkin+hotels&npsic=0&rflfq=1&rlha=1&rlla=0&rlhsc=Ch8I-YeCpdDLlbv_AQiv--3evOLJmwcIi62F5qm5s6MyMAE&rllag=31296866,-94726990,933&tbm=lcl&ved=0ahUKEwjzqeyO9JvbAhUFzoMKHdukAFIQtgMIKA&hotel_dates=2018-05-28,2018-05-29&tbs=lf_hd:-1,lf_ho:2,lrf:!1m4!1u13!2m2!13m1!1b1!1m4!1u10!2m2!11m1!1e6!1m4!1u10!2m2!11m1!1e4!1m4!1u10!2m2!11m1!1e5!1m4!1u10!2m2!11m1!1e9!1m4!1u10!2m2!11m1!1e8!1m4!1u10!2m2!11m1!1e10!1m4!1u10!2m2!11m1!1e2!1m4!1u10!2m2!11m1!1e1!1m4!1u10!2m2!11m1!1e3!1m4!1u10!2m2!11m1!1e7!2m1!1e13!2m7!1e17!4m2!17m1!1e3!4m2!17m1!1e8!2m1!1e2!2m1!1e4!2m31!1e10!4m2!11m1!1e6!4m2!11m1!1e4!4m2!11m1!1e5!4m2!11m1!1e9!4m2!11m1!1e8!4m2!11m1!1e10!4m2!11m1!1e2!4m2!11m1!1e1!4m2!11m1!1e3!4m2!11m1!1e7!2m21!1e7!4m4!7m3!1m1!1u75!3sUSD!4m4!7m3!1m1!1u100!3sUSD!4m4!7m3!1m1!1u125!3sUSD!4m4!7m3!1m1!1u150!3sUSD!3sIAE,lf:1,lf_ui:6&rldoc=1&safe=active&ssui=on#" rel="nofollow - (936) 699-2500  and the Holiday Inn Express and Suites  https://www.google.com/search?q=lufkin+hotels&npsic=0&rflfq=1&rlha=1&rlla=0&rlhsc=Ch8I-YeCpdDLlbv_AQiv--3evOLJmwcIi62F5qm5s6MyMAE&rllag=31296866,-94726990,933&tbm=lcl&ved=0ahUKEwjzqeyO9JvbAhUFzoMKHdukAFIQtgMIKA&hotel_dates=2018-05-28,2018-05-29&tbs=lf_hd:-1,lf_ho:2,lrf:!1m4!1u13!2m2!13m1!1b1!1m4!1u10!2m2!11m1!1e6!1m4!1u10!2m2!11m1!1e4!1m4!1u10!2m2!11m1!1e5!1m4!1u10!2m2!11m1!1e9!1m4!1u10!2m2!11m1!1e8!1m4!1u10!2m2!11m1!1e10!1m4!1u10!2m2!11m1!1e2!1m4!1u10!2m2!11m1!1e1!1m4!1u10!2m2!11m1!1e3!1m4!1u10!2m2!11m1!1e7!2m1!1e13!2m7!1e17!4m2!17m1!1e3!4m2!17m1!1e8!2m1!1e2!2m1!1e4!2m31!1e10!4m2!11m1!1e6!4m2!11m1!1e4!4m2!11m1!1e5!4m2!11m1!1e9!4m2!11m1!1e8!4m2!11m1!1e10!4m2!11m1!1e2!4m2!11m1!1e1!4m2!11m1!1e3!4m2!11m1!1e7!2m21!1e7!4m4!7m3!1m1!1u75!3sUSD!4m4!7m3!1m1!1u100!3sUSD!4m4!7m3!1m1!1u125!3sUSD!4m4!7m3!1m1!1u150!3sUSD!3sIAE,lf:1,lf_ui:6&rldoc=1&safe=active&ssui=on#" rel="nofollow - (936) 699-3000 .  Both have vacancies for June 8th, but only a few, but both had many vacancies for June 9th.  The hope is that some of the empty parking at the closed Comfort Inn (which is in between these other two) will help provide some trailer parking if someone is wanting to stay at that location.  There is another hotel at this location, the Quality Inn & Suites, https://www.google.com/search?q=lufkin+hotels&npsic=0&rflfq=1&rlha=1&rlla=0&rlhsc=Ch8I-YeCpdDLlbv_AQiv--3evOLJmwcIi62F5qm5s6MyMAE&rllag=31296866,-94726990,933&tbm=lcl&ved=0ahUKEwjzqeyO9JvbAhUFzoMKHdukAFIQtgMIKA&hotel_dates=2018-05-28,2018-05-29&tbs=lf_hd:-1,lf_ho:2,lrf:!1m4!1u13!2m2!13m1!1b1!1m4!1u10!2m2!11m1!1e6!1m4!1u10!2m2!11m1!1e4!1m4!1u10!2m2!11m1!1e5!1m4!1u10!2m2!11m1!1e9!1m4!1u10!2m2!11m1!1e8!1m4!1u10!2m2!11m1!1e10!1m4!1u10!2m2!11m1!1e2!1m4!1u10!2m2!11m1!1e1!1m4!1u10!2m2!11m1!1e3!1m4!1u10!2m2!11m1!1e7!2m1!1e13!2m7!1e17!4m2!17m1!1e3!4m2!17m1!1e8!2m1!1e2!2m1!1e4!2m31!1e10!4m2!11m1!1e6!4m2!11m1!1e4!4m2!11m1!1e5!4m2!11m1!1e9!4m2!11m1!1e8!4m2!11m1!1e10!4m2!11m1!1e2!4m2!11m1!1e1!4m2!11m1!1e3!4m2!11m1!1e7!2m21!1e7!4m4!7m3!1m1!1u75!3sUSD!4m4!7m3!1m1!1u100!3sUSD!4m4!7m3!1m1!1u125!3sUSD!4m4!7m3!1m1!1u150!3sUSD!3sIAE,lf:1,lf_ui:6&rldoc=1&safe=active&ssui=on#" rel="nofollow - (936) 639-3333 , it's not as nice as the others, but is a little less expensive.  With the temporary closure of the one hotel it is causing the others in town to book up fast, as we have a lot of oil and gas field workers currently staying in Lufkin.

I also went by the La Quinta Inn Lufkin,  2119 S 1st St, Lufkin, TX 75901, ( https://www.google.com/search?q=lufkin+hotels&npsic=0&rflfq=1&rlha=1&rlla=0&rlhsc=Ch8I-YeCpdDLlbv_AQiv--3evOLJmwcIi62F5qm5s6MyMAE&rllag=31296866,-94726990,933&tbm=lcl&ved=0ahUKEwjzqeyO9JvbAhUFzoMKHdukAFIQtgMIKA&hotel_dates=2018-05-28,2018-05-29&tbs=lf_hd:-1,lf_ho:2,lrf:!1m4!1u13!2m2!13m1!1b1!1m4!1u10!2m2!11m1!1e6!1m4!1u10!2m2!11m1!1e4!1m4!1u10!2m2!11m1!1e5!1m4!1u10!2m2!11m1!1e9!1m4!1u10!2m2!11m1!1e8!1m4!1u10!2m2!11m1!1e10!1m4!1u10!2m2!11m1!1e2!1m4!1u10!2m2!11m1!1e1!1m4!1u10!2m2!11m1!1e3!1m4!1u10!2m2!11m1!1e7!2m1!1e13!2m7!1e17!4m2!17m1!1e3!4m2!17m1!1e8!2m1!1e2!2m1!1e4!2m31!1e10!4m2!11m1!1e6!4m2!11m1!1e4!4m2!11m1!1e5!4m2!11m1!1e9!4m2!11m1!1e8!4m2!11m1!1e10!4m2!11m1!1e2!4m2!11m1!1e1!4m2!11m1!1e3!4m2!11m1!1e7!2m21!1e7!4m4!7m3!1m1!1u75!3sUSD!4m4!7m3!1m1!1u100!3sUSD!4m4!7m3!1m1!1u125!3sUSD!4m4!7m3!1m1!1u150!3sUSD!3sIAE,lf:1,lf_ui:6&rldoc=1&safe=active&ssui=on#" rel="nofollow - 936) 634-3351  (note that this property is on the 59N frontage, so you must take the Whitehouse exit to reach it) which also has a restaurant next to it, Casa Ole, that is near our south loop to check their parking situation.  I do not recommend this location if you are needing to trailer here.  On the flip side they did offer a discount group rate for our event of $79 for the 8th or the 9th, but like all the others they said they have far fewer vacancies for the 8th than the 9th and that you'd need to call now in order to reserve something.  They also employee all night security with an off duty police officer patrolling the property.  If you are driving in, this may be an option for you.  

If you notice, all the properties are listed as S 1st Street, this is Highway 59 on the south side of Lufkin.  There are some other hotel/motel options here, but these were the ones I was able to investigate personally yesterday.  There is a nice, new Courtyard by Marriott Lufkin,  2130 S 1st St, Lufkin, TX 75901,   https://www.google.com/search?q=lufkin+hotels&npsic=0&rflfq=1&rlha=1&rlla=0&rlhsc=Ch8I-YeCpdDLlbv_AQiv--3evOLJmwcIi62F5qm5s6MyMAE&rllag=31296866,-94726990,933&tbm=lcl&ved=0ahUKEwjzqeyO9JvbAhUFzoMKHdukAFIQtgMIKA&hotel_dates=2018-05-28,2018-05-29&tbs=lf_hd:-1,lf_ho:2,lrf:!1m4!1u13!2m2!13m1!1b1!1m4!1u10!2m2!11m1!1e6!1m4!1u10!2m2!11m1!1e4!1m4!1u10!2m2!11m1!1e5!1m4!1u10!2m2!11m1!1e9!1m4!1u10!2m2!11m1!1e8!1m4!1u10!2m2!11m1!1e10!1m4!1u10!2m2!11m1!1e2!1m4!1u10!2m2!11m1!1e1!1m4!1u10!2m2!11m1!1e3!1m4!1u10!2m2!11m1!1e7!2m1!1e13!2m7!1e17!4m2!17m1!1e3!4m2!17m1!1e8!2m1!1e2!2m1!1e4!2m31!1e10!4m2!11m1!1e6!4m2!11m1!1e4!4m2!11m1!1e5!4m2!11m1!1e9!4m2!11m1!1e8!4m2!11m1!1e10!4m2!11m1!1e2!4m2!11m1!1e1!4m2!11m1!1e3!4m2!11m1!1e7!2m21!1e7!4m4!7m3!1m1!1u75!3sUSD!4m4!7m3!1m1!1u100!3sUSD!4m4!7m3!1m1!1u125!3sUSD!4m4!7m3!1m1!1u150!3sUSD!3sIAE,lf:1,lf_ui:6&rldoc=1&safe=active&ssui=on#" rel="nofollow - (936) 632-0777 ,  I believe it will be a bit higher than any other property here though.

Another option might be to arrive early (i.e. June 8th) and we can park your trailer at our event.  Those of you that have attended are familiar with the layout, we have areas along Sherwood on the south side of the property to park trailers and offload your vehicles and areas on the north side to comfortably park 4 rigs (maybe 5?) and we should once again have parking available a block down Southwood at Adam's Crawfish (who expanded his paved area since last year).  All in all, we should have everything covered as always.  

That's it for the moment, hope his information helps and remember to let me know if you are attending as this helps us prepare for the day.
