I'm sure I'll be there, but I doubt I'll be bringing the Mach 1.

I"ll be there and hope to meet up with some forum members. If it has not already been planned, there should be plenty of time for us to have a "meet & greet" somewhere in the in-field.

I plan to be there with the Grande.  I'm concerned about the organization of this, or the potential "unorganization", but can't pass up the chance.  Should be big!  I think more of you should bring a car (overseas members I understand, but the rest of you....??).

Jim do you know where to stay as most arebooked & what about getting a group tent deal Or how is layout?

what about getting a group tent deal

I haven't looked into it. To be honest the group tent we get at Carlisle (which usually isn't free) goes mostly unused. I know the MCA has something going to let club members park in the same general area, so maybe that's something we can explore.

Ed - I don't know anything new.  There are club/group specific parking areas outside the Speedway by request.  From what I have read, parking inside the Speedway is "first come, first served" which is a bummer because I thought pre-registration got you in.  I was hoping to drive in/out and do some cruising around, but now plan to try to get inside the Speedway, park and leave the car for the weekend.

A tent with some reserved parking for several cars so you could come/go would be great - but I think you said the Vendor area was really expensive (cost prohibitive) to do this.  If anyone knows another angle I would love to hear about it.

We're going to Vegas.  Staying at Mandalay Bay.  Hope it's a good time!  Too far to drive in the winter from Colorado.

Inside the speedway will be closed & secured.

I don't know what they will do outside.

I recieved an email asking if my registered car had won an award at a MCA Grand national show in 2012 or 2013. If so Special displayed parking for the event. Anyone else get that email?

My 73 MUSTANG CONVERTIBLE. is registered for the show with the original owners group (641/2 - 73)  I ORDERED IT NEW, it is 1 of 293 with a 3514V with 4SPEED. I have earned the  MCA grille medallion our number is #21.
  Our 681/2 CJ will be staying home, last year we had it at Carlisle in building T. We are planning to take the CJ to DEARBORN in August (MUSTANG MEMORIES SHOW at FORD WORLD HEADQUARTERS)

I plan on being there with my 68.5 but will probably just stay at the drag strip for the duration unless they will let me in to the oval track for a few hours. I plan on going to the NMCA race in Atlanta the weekend before and the FE reunion the week after.

Are you running it up at Beaver Springs? Great place to make some Passes next to other FE's !!!Had a blast there last year driving the 70' up & doing some 1/4 mile fun!

Post by: Winnipeg on February 03, 2014, 01:14:23 pm
That is the plan.  I am not much of a car show guy.  My car has original paint, 42,000 miles and what I like to call "original dings dents and scratches" so when I go to car shows someone is always trying to tell me I should paint and restore it.  My answer is usually that then I would never drive it.  At the Mustang 40th I had several people scold me for driving it but they were quick to assure me that as long as I was not racing it that it would be "OK" to drive it.  I told them that I had not raced it lately, at least not since Tuesday at a test and tune in St Louis. The engine made 714 HP and 655 torque on the dyno.

Winnipeg , Hope to meet you there. I will have two 68 1/2 cars. Glad you are bringing it out. There was a sweet White 135 car and also a White Production car at Beaver Springs racing last year. Should be bigger and better.

Hey David

The car is still not for sale LOL.  I plan on having my old Keystones on it like the ones that were on your California car.  When I saw those pictures with the flat tires on the Keystones I noted that it had those same Volkswagen model tires on the front skinnies like when I got my Keystones from Norm Nevin (engine builder for Tom Stafford, Steve Steel and Marcel Cloutier) in the mid 70's. I am very much looking forward to seeing your cars.  Did you say you were going to the Mustang 50th with your cars?
