Is anyone entertaining the thought?  How about who from our area just plans on attending, but not driving there?

Thought about it, but just not interested in the long trip, but things might change.  I used to go to every convention, but lost interest in them when I stopped doing the open track fun stuff.

Bump

Henry G just contacted me stating he is planning to trailer his car there.  Anyone else?  I have been considering taking a page from Steve McDonald's play book and driving it there old school.  I might even try it on bias-plys, smoking a pack of Camels, channeling my inner Carrol.  I want to have the full experience for the 50th anniversary.

This is what it looks like when you pass me in the rain   HeadSpin
Because we are planing NCRMC meet this weekend, and the Maryland SAAc show on Sunday, Back to the Beach May 13th, Cruisin Ocean City  May 17th -21st, Cruisin Southern Maryland Verteran Day 100 mile cruise May 27th,  Ford Carlisle June 2nd. We plan on driving the car to all of these events, but the wife is saying she wants me to trailer it to SAAC 42, add the travel Sunday up to SAAC Dearborn on Sunday and a possible drive down to Mid America, this might make sense. Or maybe if the long term weather looks good, she will just follow me in her car.  Heat pump (30 years  old) just decided to die and the quotes for replacement could finance the trip😫

Or maybe you ask your "secretary " to go with you to help "relive the stress of driving"

I have secured a transport to bring my car to SAAC 42.  It is an enclosed trailer, and it has room for a second vehicle.  Leaving from Chapel Hill, NC early in the week and the driver will wait around to the event concludes and transport back.  If you are on the path there and are interested, contact me.  He is offering a very fair price for a second car.

Looks like the second spot in the trailer is spoken for.  Car 78 will be carried along with 83.  I think we'll call it the 'Double Digit Express'.  I'm really looking forward to seeing all of you there.  HeadSpin
