    I may or may not make it, this year. If I do come out I'd probably pack lighter & do so in the Mark VI 2-door. It'd be a matter of taking two vacation days and not a week as I plan on selling back 3 of my 4 weeks of vacation this year if they let me. I just want to pay everything off and be 100% debt free finally before I start hoarding parts and cash for REALLY building up the cars here.

    Don't do anything stupid this year... Not trying to piss off the speed shop guy or Scott.

    Anywho, I will be coming of course. Barring no end of the world type circumstances. I'll be bringing Vicky. And if my friend comes, the Grand Marquis will come too. I'm kinda interested to see what Blue can do on the dyno, and at the dragstrip.

    Would be great to get it done for sure. I crunched some numbers & that would be about $2K for just me to journey out there, back and then out & back again, no food or hotels or anything. I might be able to swing that but not much more, gotta do some more homework...

    Google maps says it's about a 10 hour drive for me. Any Panther meet could use another Box. Let's see what the future brings.
    1990 MGM: $50 E7 heads, HO cam, Holley SysteMAX lower intake, HO upper intake with an Explorer TB. LSC ECM. Lincoln logs into stock dual exhaust. K&N drop in air filter. Wide ratio AOD, 2400 converter with a 3.08 one tire fire out back. Car is less slow now. Then there's the '92 Beater. Dual 2.25" exhaust with shiny tips. Rumbles nice. Super slow. Burns oil too.

    Me too.

    By the way, did I leave my glasses in there? I know Scott gave them to me, but I haven't seen them since then. Not sure if I lost them at the diner, or left them in your car because I've about run out of other places to look.

    If you roll we'd have to roll together, that would be three panthers in a line, people might think we were on a mission... If I left out the HO swap I'd save a considerable amount lol

    If I come, I'm bringing a few cases worth of real cane sugar sodas from Dublin Bottling Works (formerly Dublin Dr Pepper - no more Dr Pepper, but their own sodas are pretty damn good).

    and it looks promising that I'll be able to come. Just need the wife to be in good spirits about it come time for the trip.
