    Hey, everyone...it's been a while since I've been on Motortopia and it's good to be back!

    I'm assuming (even though there are mixed references to the '11 and '12 Bandit Runs) that these posts are in fact related to the upcoming '12 Run next May.

    After a year's absence, the Tinman will be back...and the goal is to bring two cars: the '76 LE T/A (I've got carburetor and oil leak issues to resolve) and the '73 T/A (list is long, but 7879TA and I are about ready to tear into it).

    If anyone is passing through the Dallas area on the way to Texarkana, let's convoy!

    BTW, it's been almost two years since the '10 Run. I'm STILL finding those censored image love bugs in the '76!!!

    Glad to hear you'll be making it! I'll actually be cruising right through there, just not sure when yet. Going to try to be there for the Sat kick off.. but depends on if I can get off work a couple days extra.

    Foxy--

    I'm certain we can make the arrangements. As we get closer to the Run, just send a pm with the details on when you're arriving and where you'll be staying so we can work out the logistics. We're on the far north side of Dallas about a thirty minute drive from the airport.

    Best,

    Tinman
