A detour onto RT66 would seem to be in order as well!

Since several of you have posted your upcoming trips, I decided to post my trip driving my 68 GT/CS. There is a show in Richland, WA, Memorial Day weekend which I shall be attending then I head east. First stop will be Mustang, OK June 4-6; then on to Hamburg, NY for a show June 12, and possibly on in Liverpool, NY, the next day. The following weekend I haven't really decided if I will take in any - might need to recoup some. Then the weekend of June 26-27, I will be in Indianapolis, IN, for the All Ford Show w/Boss and Shelby Reunion. After the July 4th weekend in Washington, DC, area - staying with friends - I head back home to Washington State in time for the MCA Grand National.

Hopefully I shall meet some of you at the shows I plan on attending. These are the shows I will be attending; and if I can fit in another one or two along my route, there may be more.

Bill

I would have thought you would have been much closer.

Looks like my route could take me past a lot of the CS crews towns - through Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska and into Colorado.

I think there is a CS or HCS owner on the site in almost every one of those states. We could build one heck of a growing caravan on that route.

There is allways a place for you to stay in eastern Nebraska. And a few Mustangs to look at too! Marty

Should we move this conversation into its own thread?

OK, I split off some of the posts from the other thread and into their own discussion. It's a little confusing maybe. Wasn't sure exactly what to pull off, especially from those of you more gifted at rambling and swerving off topic. Oh, wait. That's everyone on this site!

I have been putting the heat on my body guys to get the HCS body done so we can have it there. What a perfect home coming that would be. I can't wait. Marty

Yes Rob, you can ''collect'' Satan and I. Need to find a trailer, and will there be room for trailer parking?

ISO well behaved, dependable, and determined CS.

There is a huge lot the host hotel owns (Steamboat Grand) a block from the hotel where all the trailers park. Plenty of space! It truly is a great event in what I think is the best town in the U.S.
Couple of tips...
1. book your hotel early. I think registration opens right around Jan 1.
2. Pay the extra for a reserved parking spot in the garage in the basement of the hotel. You will have a designated reserved spot underground for your Mustang the entire weekend.

Bob is also a first class host. I'm sure you will all have a great time! Maybe I'll find my HCS by then.

another thing that is cool about this show from some others I've been to. All the cars pre-stage in a lot about 3 miles from Downtown where the show is. We stage all the cars by class and then send them down together parade style. All classes park together, so you won't have to worry about trying to coordinate getting parked together at the show.
