    This is going to be cool. I don't have a vehicle that fits the profile - but I'm going to try to attend.

    So cool.

    Vern's been standing on my arse to free up my schedule & commit to coming out for the weekend.

    I FINALLY did it, blew off everything, got a "happy volunteer" as a co-pilot, & submitted reg via email! Just have to get a hotel room, & we're good to go.

    The roadster's in the shop getting a few things fixed, so I can bring it out, but I'm stoked.
     
  18. AWESOME!!! Woot Woot!
