Maybe the weather would be better for May and I would sure like to make one trip in my life time.

Don't have to think it over... :yahoo::yahoo::yahoo::yahoo::yahoo::yahoo:

 

Only thing I have to think about is, if this is my 4th or 5th time? :headscratch:

As discussed since last year was cancelled by me for health issues but this year it is a big YES. May works best so my son can go.

Glad to hear you're feeling better Cliff... Looking forward seeing Ford again if it works out. Last time I saw your son was Hermann.

 

Are you going to be the last one again and buy the drinks??? :hysterical:

Sure. I will let Scott pull into the hotel parking lot first. It makes him happy.

The new hood.........and many more items you will see in person. Can't wait for Spring to get here as I only got to drive the car a few times last year due to the health issues. Ready to rock now.

Ummm, what ever! Besides if you we're to lead, we'd end up .... Who the hell knows where :drop:

 

Gonna be interesting this year since the pace car driver quit needing to stop every 30 minutes for a smoke break :yahoo:

Oh the smoke breaks will still be on time!!! :whistling::whistling:

 

As to Dons response on my son earlier. He now cannot make it as of last night (at least doesn't believe so) as he may be in Nicaragua from May 3 to May 23 on a college work study class trip.

 

As to drinks I do not have alligator arms. I'll make sure to pack an extra bottle this time for Jim and Don, however.

Interested as long as it does not interfere with Spring Break for my kids as it has in the past. Mid May would be a better timeframe.

Start marking your calendars, performing honey do's, what ever it takes to get away for a couple days, etc.....

 

Primary dates will be 4/30 and 5/1 (dinner on 4/29) with Rain dates a week later (5/7 & 5/8) :yahoo:

 

First post to be updated tonight with all the pertinent info.

2 months to to go...

 

Who's going :headscratch:

 

 

My problem is I dont know which car to bring :spiteful:

 

The weather would be great for the convertible GT500 and top down BUT, the curvy roads would be FANTASTIC for the GT350... :shrug:

 

Decisisions, Decisions..... :stirpot:

Either choice would be fantastic as both are beautiful Shelby's! :drool:

 

I on the other hand can only have one choice as it's the only one with a plate :shift:

FYI - Day two route heading east on 58.... fairly uninteresting at that point. Conversely, West on 58 is an amazing drive. Just a thought and then you could end up in either Abingdon or head back to Boone. I'll throw my hat in the ring as a maybe for now.

I am going. Jeff "Cobramach1" is hoping to go. He went with us the year we went to Charlotte. He is working it out at work and thinks he travel down from Michigan with us.

 

Jim, I agree, either car is beautiful but I would love to see the 350. Haven't been in one yet.....

 

Spring is a coming, soon.
