Carlisle Bound?

Having run the XR this weekend up here in the frozen north, thoughts turn to attending my 21st Ford Nationals at Carlisle.

Who else is going? Have you made your reservations? Looking forward to seeing everyone and spending the weekend looking at great cars.

I knew that Scott. Didn't look like you driving either. I think it was not a stock silver either.
