          I can't promise anything, but I would like to try. It will depend on a lot of things.

            Yep, a collector in WI bought it making it his 4th Mark, first one with a stick hes 62 and no need to be on the internet.
            I told him about LOD...He didn't care
            He called the DD touch screen in dash a kerplunk stereo because thats the sound it will make when it hits the trash.

            Called me more then once trying to figure out the manual air ride override switches I have in the center counsel and wants to trash the 18s...to each their own.
            Its gone...I got projects I have been neglecting too long.

                Nothing wrong with having your priorities straight.

                Just let me know if you need a manual-mark-fix. You know I'm good for it.

                    Let's call it - October 6-8

                    I'll try to come up with a few things to do. Otherwise it'll just be the usual "socialization weekend"

                    I found this one - I don't know much about it, but it's a ~15 minute drive..

                      While you guys are at the car show I am hoping to be at Rock Falls Raceway and not blowing up. Perhaps some of you guys want to watch history being made? I plan to be the first stock bottom end Mark VIII in the 10s on this very day and I expect Big Red to be lifting the front tires.

                      Edit: I realllly would like a videographer at the starting line so we can see how much air this thing is going to get this year. Lol. The converter is coming back with the tq multiplying factor spread out and a bump to 5000 rpm stall so it is going to be nasty.

                        Forget the track! you can lift the tires in front of Mike's house. I am sure he will even let yo try multiple times.

                            The show is just an option, not a requirement. I'm sure folks may be interested in a track day, too.

                            Or just the usual "social weekend."

                            It seems there's definitely interest in this happening. Do any out-of-towners plan to make the trip?
