The Turkey Rod Run is huge. I've never seen any of the hardtop restorers there.
That being said, even if one was there, it would be a logistical nightmare to try to get a hardtop into the show/swap area.
The track is a 2.5 mile long oval, and the entire area within the track is filled with the car show, car corral, and swap meet. (excluding the lake)
Someone good with math can probably figure out the surface area covered within the track.
You could be carrying that hardop for miles... literally.
If you don't get there early, you could park one or more miles away from the entry gate. Don't ask how I know this.
Better shot, as others have suggested, is Kissimmee at the NCRS Regional in January. I know that the hardtop guys are there.
