Cobie, I don't recognize those towns, but the routes have nicknames like Tail of the Dragon and Cherohala Skyway. I'm not sure if N.C. State Road 28 has a nickname.

If you're by there, give them a try. They are twistin' and turnin' and have a great view.

And, I haven't seen the '05 concept 'Stang yet. I'll do a search.

Happy Trails!

Dang!!! Those are sexy cars. I love the styling cues from the early Mustangs. Yowza!

Kinda wish they were four seaters, but I love the look and 400 horses makes my heart go pitter patter.

Me like!!!

Drew,

Just found your reply, sorry.

You want have to worry about the Mustang being a 2 seater. :D

Im surprized Ford is building the 2 seater T-Bird to be honest. Its the only production sports car they have ever built.

Oh my! I think your bottom has fused to the driver's seat. I'll put out an APB if you forget to drive back home. Heh heh. :D

Have fun! I await your pics!

Im Baaaaaak,

A wonderful weekend :D
Got to see some new Mach 1's and about 3700 street rods.
The Knoxville show is going to be my planned event from here on out.

Very nice park.

The wife and I had to carry some goodies out to the car, and on our way back in to the park I thought I better call El-Kabong.

I get my cell out and Im fiddiling with the damn thing trying to see who had left me a message. And all of the sudden, I hear to my left, Dennis?

I turn and its El-Kabong!!! :o

Well allright. Talk about timing. We talked a bit about cars, tfc, and Missy :P He is a alright guy. We could talk cars all day. Hope to see him again.

Missy btw was a no show :( She missed a lot of old pickups.

Anyway, the wife and I met two of my old friends there with his bad a$$ '32 Ford and watched the cars.
Got home today, and we took the Mustage out and I finally got 132 miles on it :wink:

Now back to work tomorrow :x Ill get more pics up when I resize them.

Oh btw, T-Bone. The pic of my '34 really dont show that its not finished.
I have to take it all back apart again. Ill get there some day.

Dennis
