    Just wondered if we have a roll call going yet?
    I will be there Saturday as I'm returning from CA with the family.

    Is there a meet up spot??

    I was planning the trip from IL for over a year. Now the wife is due with our first baby a week or so later so the trip is off. Say "hi" to Phil for me. :mrgreen:

    I'm seriously thinking of going,, If I can get my brother to go along and share the driving. I haven't been to Vegas since I was 10 years old,, we drove through there one time. I'd like to see it now that i'm 45.. lol

    I've heard that mopars at the strip is a cool event.
    See you there,,, I hope !

    I am not racing, for my Duster will be in my brothers museum
    in Minn. Anybody going I will give you my cell number, if anyone
    is racing and needs an extra set of hands I will be more than
    happy to buy a pit pass and give you a hand in the pits.
    After, we'll have a few cold ones!!! 8)

    I managed to go last year. Two years in a row is pushing it.... My wife is cool, but not up for an annual pilgramage to Sin City. Mopars at the Strip is a great show. Word of advice: Pack a HUGE cooler in your car and bring PLENTY of water. They were charging $4 for a 12oz. bottle. Between me & my wife we must have spent close to $30 on water..... :shock:

    Besides, Vegas itself kinda sucked... It reminded me of a large-scale Times Square thats gone horribly wrong :shock:

    I'll be flying in on Friday to drive one of my customer's cars .. Finishing up the new trans/converter right now. 64 Fury with a Barton HEMI.. :shock: :bounce:

    I think board member Hawaii Duster (Craig) now lives in Vegas .. so all of us F.A.B.O members should plan to meet up, and I guess if we HAVE TO we can mingle with the moparts.com members .. hehe ..

    See you guys there! :thumleft:

    Yep I'm here in Vegas now, so who ever is coming up let me know. We all need to meet up somewhere at least once so we can put some faces with the names.

    I think I am staying at the Hampton Inn with some other racers from Colorado .. :scratch:

    I'll buy all ya guy's a beer or 12. :salut: :mrgreen: :shock:

    Adam, well ..that's a loaded question. Someone worked on the car/transmission that shouldn't have, so we're building a new converter for it, and throwing the Turbo Action manual VB in the garbage. It should be good to go ..providing the motor isn't down on power (I have a feeling it is) ... We are gonna hit a test and tune here on March 26th, so if it isn't right (motor wise) the car will not be going to Vegas.
