I'm planning on attending.  My job will have me working my butt off through the end of March, then *poof* I'll be suddenly retired.  So I'm in.   I will probably take my MINI rather than my Mini, just to avoid the hassle.

Ahem, this is a mini bbq.  77.gif

So...  if Iím hearing you right that means cocktail wieners instead of full-size hotdogs?

New to this group, but I have known MiniDave for years and I have been driving my classic since 2004.  I am looking forward to this run!

I have the wideband ordered and on the way to those who want to see how their tune is.  I have a variety of small items to give away or raffle and one bigger item to raffle if it suits anyone.  And if no one wants it, I'll keep it for my next build!

Those are solid numbers, mustang dynos typically give a tad lower reading than dynojet too.

She runs like a champ!  I just replaced the coil on her and the only issue is the vacuum advance.  I am sure with the group going on this trip, that can be resolved.

Here's my dyno sheet for comparison. I've done some tweaks since this and need to dyno again.  Hopeful I've picked up a few more ponies and torques.  I've also dropped a lot of weight off the car.

Scoped out roads today. Found a couple winners.  No real tight windies, but a lot of open road, little traffic, and the occasional curve.

I asked Dan as our man on the ground to check out a couple of places - last time I was down there I stayed at the Motel 6 as it was on the very south edge of B'ville - what a huge mistake! None of the door key cards worked so anytime I wanted to leave or return to my room I had to get the desk person to lock/unlock the door for me.....the place was in terrible condition and right on the main road so there was a lot of traffic noise too.

So that we don't repeat my mistake I asked Dan to look at a couple of places before we reserve a block of rooms, the Candlewood and Holiday Inn Express that Don and I stayed at are both well back off the main road. Also, I've since learned from my world traveling brother - you stay on the top floor, that way you never have someone bounding across your ceiling at all hours like a herd of elephants - I had always booked a room on the ground floor as it was easier for me to get the dogs in and out - but that's not an issue on this trip!

They also have a Hampton and I've always been happy with them......

The yellow boxes hold 10 each!  It was an ebay score.

Candlewood lady who does block rates is out till Monday. It's $75 a night as is.  There's also a days inn across the parking lot that's sure to be cheap for the skinflints.  I'll call Monday when the lady is available.

There's a few other tuning items available, an med intake kit for those with a hif44 setup, and a new vacuum unit for a 65D.

That looks good. The rooms have a kitchen so that is good.
