    Roughly 14 hours (750 miles) with the swing thru Abilene to meet some friends... that includes lunch, a flatty fuel pump swap, and a battery swap after my alternator failed.

    I still firmly believe that Cory's car just can't get any better. And...he drives the wheels off it!

    I missed this thread. I am glad I found it. I enjoyed talking with @Reggie. You guys are inspiring driving your cars all the way there and back. I am going to have to drive my banger up there next year. I don’t have very far to come.

    Thanks for posting that Blake, when we saw the 32 at the hill climb we were saying "Hey this is right hand drive whats going on here? " pity we didn't catch up with you guys, maybe we will be back for the roundup.
