I look forward to meeting up and maybe driving some or all of the tour together. 

I hope it happens too. If not I'll plan another road trip like I did last year with my son.

Well, I'm almost ready to go. Rear brakes will be good and figuring out the gas gage. My 87 year old dad will be riding along and I look forward to a great time.

I am almost ready to go as well. I just got the itch that I wanted to upgrade the already upgraded front brakes so I will be working on this next week. I am going with the 2-piece rotor and 6 piston option from Wilwood (140-12945 with slotted but not drilled rotors). Right after the HRPT I will be doing a track day at Blackhawk in the way back home. That said, I want to have good brakes and large pads to avoid overheating. This seems to be the most common issue with the track at Blackhawk.

1973 Mach1, Q code, 4 speed, with an open 3:25 differential. It has what is left of the original Gold Glow paint and a very sun baked ginger interior. I purchased it in Winslow Arizona in May 2018. It has a 75 DSO and I believe it spent its entire time in AZ. It appears to have been parked in 1978 until earlier this year when the guy I bought it from purchased it.
I'm going and would like to meet up at some point.

Might stop up at the Dayton fair grounds to meet you guys. I doubt that I will be driving the car.  Just completed some work on it and I want to stay local until I know all is ok.
