    Thanks for the early heads up, Rusty!

    I will try to make it my plan to attend this event.....even if only as a spectator and it is the only event I get to in 2018.

    Especially since it is at Norwalk.....which is not that far for me. I've been to that track and it is a GREAT track - they do things right there!

          A friend of mine owns a '69 428CJ/C6, Q-code Sportroof. It is his toy; he does not campaign it, but when he gets it out, it will run 9.8x on a 10" tire. It is heavily messaged, but still a N/A, FE-based mill. A couple of months ago, I told him about the Norwalk CJ gig, and now he's planning to go -- and says I should go with him!
          I guess I will have to step up to a VIP CREW ticket now! Yeah Baby!

            I'm not so sure if the VIP CREW tickets will get us into the Cobra Jet car show as well? I'm not so sure...... I may have to call them.


            Does anyone here know? Please share your knowledge...... Thanks in Advance!
