Default Power Tour 2018

Any of you knuckleheads doing some or all of this year's Power Tour?
If so, we should find the time to all have a beer somewhere, whether it is at a bar or in a hotel parking lot.

Too bad it's really far away, I finally have the opportunity to do this but I am not willing to go that far.

Hopefully the end of the 2019 tour gets closer back to Texas then, I have a few toys that would be fun but I really want to take the bird I picked up from 01yz.

I would do a few stops if it was somewhat in the area.

I will be doing it sans A/C. But that's part of the fun for me. taking my "racecar" on a road trip. I feel like it would be boring to take one of the mustangs.

After our house sells and we move into new house this fall I will start throwing cash at the Miata. Ford 302 ( already have ) or LS swap? LS is more expensive swap but everything to do it is in stock on a shelf.
