Could be interesting. Ford GTs welcome? This is only about 450 miles from here...

P.S... George Anderson and Gessford Machine is the premier old-style engine builder. He's noted for wonderful 427FE ("Side Oiler") rebuilds, but also puts together a mean new build Shelby 427 Aluminum block engine. He's also a Shelby Cobra dealer so I would expect a few Cobras to be out to play :)

You might drop this on the Cobra forum www.clubcobra.com. Might draw a few midwesterners from there too.

Tony, after much thought we decided that NO Ford GT's will be allowed. We just dont want to attract "THAT" kind of crowd. :hysterical:

Of course or GT brothers are welcome to attend. I will also get it up on the new GT forum, www.fordgtalley.com as it wont get deleted there! :hysterical2:

BTW - George is a GREAT guy and is really helping us make this a top-notch event!

Do I have to have helmets and extinguishers and all that crap?

I've already determined that I cant' sit in the seat with a helmet. I either need a gurney bubble or the seat lowering kit . The bubble is quite pricey, and the seat lowering kit is somewhat permanent. Dang..

A helmet yes, extinguisher no.

You do need a seat kit like Mike had at the bash with his Heritage.

What did he have? Is it the lowered seat or some other setup?
