If it's not too late to make the roster, I've recently come into some free time that weekend and would love to join the festivities! Consider me a "maybe" as I have to figure out which vehicle I'd bring (whichever has the biggest pile of spare parts)

I intend to bring the 122 but I've been really dragging my feet lately. The weather just got really nice though and I'm off for four days this weekend so we'll see.

One day, many years in the future, you're going to wake up to a giant hunk of granite on your front porch.

And you'll know exactly who it's from.

I vote for the '83. I've been drooling over that car since I saw the CL ad.

If I keep changing the wheels, they'll just keep thinking it's a different car. Actually if there's another cruise that's going all the way to the dragon, I'm gonna sit it out. I don't think any of us planned on being gone for ten hours last year. Also I might bring my dog.

It's mostly loud, rattly, and leaves small piles of rust on the ground.

I'll be rolling in the R. it'd be nice to get the front struts replaced beforehand, but that may be a logistical bridge too far..

Damn this makes me want to bust ass and get the DCOE's on the 122. I'd also like to get the M41 in there.

That reminds me, I should try to figure out where my M41 leaks oil.

I drive it all the time around town on shorter trips, it doesn't leak (much?). But take it on a long trip and somehow, somewhere the M41 starts leaking oil out. When I drove it to SE I had to add oil a couple of times when the OD would stop engaging.

Probably something that only leaks when the OD is engaged, that's the main difference. OD off vs. OD on for hours at a time.

Add girlfriend to the list. Hopefully still bringing the Turbo MGB. The clutch has started slipping in 3rd, so this may be it's last ride.

Thanks @Jared/Propav8r for letting me know about this today, I'll be there! Going to try and get my 82 244 Turbo running in time but since that's highly unlikely, I'll most likely be showing up in my VR.
Stoked to finally meet some of you guys! I'll be showing up friday and bringing a sleeping bag to crash on the floor or in my wagon.
