Thanks to all for putting this together, my first one BANDIT RUN but not my last . JUST the shear enjoyment of cruising the south with 54 other TA'S oh yeah and sam's formula notice not capitalized thanks to mark and his wife for coming up sat. night and breaking the ice and making me feel at home.And thanks to bob for finally applying your breaks so u didn't take sam and i out while we were parked on the dragons tail.I have turned my video over to the loon for development coming out shortly.GOD BLESS EACH AND EVERYONE YOU. CHRIS [THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES]

#33 Jun 8, 2009 at 5:48 pmHi all - A bit late getting to the forum. I got back to Calgary on Sunday the 24th. The car ran like a top the whole way - 6480 miles from garage to garage. I stopped for a couple days in Indianapolis & toured the track. Got to drive it on Wednesday. Good fun but way to slow. Stopped in Lincoln to see the Restore A Muscle Car guys. Had dinner with them & carried on the next day throught Cheyenne, Wyo., Great Falls, Mont. & home.
Had a fabulous time with all of you. If things work out next year, I might be able to do it again.
Keep in touch!!
SHOW 'EM THE 'BIRD!!
