If anyone wants to come in a day early (July 30th) and drive up to Milwaukee/West Allis WI (about an hour or so north of Loves Park) the Stampede will be on the Racing Round Up show again. Karen and I will buy the pizza's and soda's. The show is from 6pm-7:30pm) so you would have plenty of time to get back to your hotel in IL
Just let me know.

Scott, Thanks for the heads up. Not sure when we are headed out. Just know that I have to make a stop somewhere on RT 66. Just don't know where yet.

OK guys... I have a project at work that will be delaying my stampede departure 1 day... (I'm hoping this is the ONLY delay)..

I'm leaving now the 30th from Alabama to arrive in Loves Park late into the afternoon/evening on the 31st... Won't miss any of the Stampede but might miss some folks drive up together.

Looking forward to the RIDE!!

I have my electric fan, electric choke and water, volts and oil pressure gauges installed and working for the stampede. My son and I will be making the ride while the wife and daughter stay behind and take care of the animals.

Taking i40 to i24 to i57 to i74 to US51...

Staying overnight somewhere between Cape Girardeau and Springfield- will wing it.

Looking forward to the ride... it's almost here!

Dave you do make it tempting to hop on airliner. Scott I see your just about ready. More info if need when you head east on eye-40 over river turn right then another right brown building on river is information center free maps and all. Norm don't let that happen to you ! LOL   Fred   :)

I have known Terry Schriber (sp) for a long time but this was the first time we met in person and I got to see his garage. Tercin is his forum name, he has a fox body mustang, vw bug and a recently acquired 40s truck. You remember the motor max toys that were created? - they used his car- yup the one behind him there. He also had a pinto shifter I have never seen before... Really good people. Terry is.
