If Kenny took the 740, he'd either show up 27 hours before he planned or not at all. There is no middle ground.

Flying into Atlanta on Wednesday (21st) morning and borrowing a RWD (barely) Volvo, I can pick anyone up either in Atlanta or between.

If anyone is heading back to Atlanta Sunday (25th) I'll be looking for a ride to the airport, that is unless anyone sells me their 220...

ugh. no that would be fairly miserable with no overdrive and stock suspension. from a reliability standpoint there's no reason it shouldn't make the trip, but *I* wouldn't survive lol

The Montgomery crew would probably be your best bet for an airport dropoff. They tend to leave around breakfast and go right past the airport.

Coop and I will be there! So stoked!! MountainMeet is one of the highlights of my year. Not sure I'll be in a Volvo unless someone wants to loan me one for the weekend lol. But the E46 should still be fun if I haven't sold it for a much less reliable Swedish steed by then. @proav8r I know I sent you $ but let me know if you need more with the rising food costs!

this is true, however this year the montgomery crew is down a couple vehicles (so I'm gonna have to plan accordingly lol). toying with a small trailer instead of putting everything in the car

Probably smart. Just don't pull a Nick and get a pot metal and paperclip hitch for the car.

My flight lands at 5:30 in the morning. I'm sure I can entertain myself until it's time to roll up on NC but I'm more than willing to drive to AL and pick up whatever.

Just FYI, the Delta Sky Club in the center of Concourse E in Atlanta has showers but idk if you can get in and I'm too lazy to look it up.

Also, driving that 960 from Atlanta to Montgomery and then back to the mountains may be the bravest thing ever. I took it to WV once in a pinch and it's never let me down, but it would be some **** to get stuck on the side of the road headed away from your ultimate in a ****ty old Volvo after flying across the country to hang out with people that enjoy ****ty old Volvos.

I may drive the Miata again. Partly because it's so damn fun on those roads, partly so it *knock on wood* can redeem itself after finishing last years MM with the U-haul trailer ride of shame.

My wife wants to come along now. It's tradition that we take a 240 road trip in the fall.
