My car is not stock either. It gets 8/10 around town and 13 on the highway. But it has the stock fuel tank in it. I don't own a trailer. It's pushin about 420 (360rwhp) w/ 550 lbs of torque. And theres more in the motor. The fuel system can't keep up with the motor currently. Should be "right" for next years run, thats my winter project this year. Lining things up now to get to work on it.
You'd be surprised at the TAs that are not stock on the run. Mild to wild.
Your wife will not feel out of place pulling a trailer. There have been other trailers on the run at different times. Restore A Musclecar has to pull their trailer every year. We've had SUVs, pick-ups, rental cars, and other brand name muscle cars on the run new and old.
Where are you thinking your "put on" point would be? Texarkana I'm thinking. So I guess you would trailer to there, unload your car, do the run (Texarkana to Braselton), and trailer it back home from Year One? Don't know your finances but thats definitly doable logistically. A thought would be that you could only do one leg of the run. Or trailer your car on certain legs of the run, and cruise it on others. I guess the Tremic isn't helping much on the MPG. Of course what would it be without it?
It's your vacation, so have fun with it. Runnin down the road with all the black and gold is a sight to see. We definitly want you to come on the run. Hope to see YA there.
Keep on Pontiyakkin'
