Steve looks great 12 cars already. We are still thinking about coming down for the drive. "DIVA" Allison always does a great road trip.

Hi Eddy,

Most our participants already have radios (I have two pair myself; 3 to lend) and one of our coordinators has access to a dozen that are always available for loan at the meet. :tu:

The biggest challenge is keeping that many cars together, but we have a couple of pull-off places to re-group...:usa:
