Is there a rough estimate of how many cars will be there? Since mine is no where near running or driving state, I'll be in the SHO but hate to drive 2 hours for a handful of cars.
I believe everyone who is likely to show has posted in this thread. If you decide not to come, there will be one less.
I rarely head-count until the actual event happens, for any car meet. Too many no-shows to get everyone's hopes up.

I repeat to my local club often, if you want more stuff to happen you gotta just do stuff. Participation is exponential. When you do stuff, others will join in. If you sit around waiting, how many others are waiting as well?

I drove 4 hours to in a non-Ford hybrid! :mullet: I go months without seeing a Fox T-bird/Cougar, and when I do, it's invariably a beater. Rare chance to see the Foxes and the people who care about them!

Well, I goofed and forgot to book my room and now they be all gone. :(

So I booked a room at Comfort Inn, right down the road from Champion Ford.

See you guys tomorrow!

I fell victim to this two years ago. For whatever reason, this Days Inn blocks out all reservations online whenabouts the ThunderCat Day occurs. You have to call to get a room. I made my reservation about 6pm today. lol.

Bedtime for deez nutz.

Good point. Unfortunately my plans changed this morning, and I won't be free to go. Is this an annual event?

Best car at the shop... ;)


Couldn't find a tie-down on the front due to the mass of plastic for aero, so no dyno numbers! :p

Wow! There were a lot of nice rides there!  I'm going to have to go one of these years...we'll see if I can blow the dyno up with my high-mile 5.0. 

I really like that white Ranger w/2.3T.  That little truck is super cool!

Well we could just make a convoy out of it then!  I was up through Mooresville a few weeks ago heading to the state fair.  I looked for your car at that parts place you work part time but didn't spot it.  Thought I'd stop and say "hi" if you were around.
