Hey guys, I'm def going to be down there. Found a 1986 XR4Ti Auto w/ 46,000 miles so I'm going down to check it out in PA within the week.

Regardless of whether I buy it or not, I'll be there.

I'll be there with at least the XR and RS. Only reason I'm bringing the RS is that I ran out of beer room on the XR wing!

It's gonna be great to get together again eh!

Well, it IS scheduled for precisely the same two days following Carlisle again in 2006, so we'll probably do the mad dash north from Carlisle again on Sunday afternoon. The timing really is a double-edged sword kind of thing - in a perfect world, the WGI event would be on Tue & Wed rather than Mon & Tue, but I know for some people the Mon-Tue thing works better. Me, I could really use a wind-down day in-between.

i'm going to go. possibly in the XR, if not, the focus.

i was there in 2003 and i remember the lineup of XRs... little did i know my parents would finally say "okay ray, take the damned car."

if the XR does make it, i hope to have the suspension setup installed and possibly the cage. we'll see.

One year I will make it to Carlisle...but not this one...no cash to go, and I only get 2 weeks vacation, ergo I'd get to drive there, spend a day, maybe 2 the drive back....

but one day I will make it, and drive the xr the whole way...
