    As always, The Defenders will be hitting the road from So Cal. What other clubs will be road tripping out? Have any pix of past roadtrips to Viva?

    Here are a few of ours from our past journeys to Viva . . .

    We usually hit the road about 4:30 AM. Last year, Gary and Bob had to work all night to get Gary's gasser ready for the road. Started off pretty bleary-eyed. That's why God made coffee.

    First road trip for the T-bird, but we lost brakes on it near Rasier Road (pronounced "Racer" . . . ), which is in the middle of NOWHERE

    [​IMG]

    We had to stop there anyway as - for some reason - they sell high octane race gas, and Gary needed it for his high-comp 301. He had all the places he could by gas marked on his map in advance, and had a bunch of gas cans in his trunk. Smart guy.

    Don't attempt this stunt. All stunts preformed on a closed course by professional drivers.

    Harold's '60. Harold has a perfect record of never making it to Vegas without breaking down, and his cars will rarely make it over the double-nickle when they are running. I took pity on him and sold him my camaro 5 speed for his El Camino, so this year he - hopefully - will be able to keep up. Go for it Harold!

    This sedan has probably been to Viva at least six or seven times. Maybe more.

    Hey Moldy, we're taking off Thursday afternoon. I think we may hook up with the boys from the Wheeltramps as well, as Brian says that is when they are going.

    So you're taking Ophelia? Cool. Just go with everyone else on Thursday. That way you won't get eaten by coyotes if you break down in the middle of the desert.

    Give me a call -

    I don't doubt it, Moldy. Ophelia is kind of like the Energizer Bunny, in Ford stationwagon form.
