Well, since Mike blew his whole load on a GTR, I not sure if he's heading up the Shootout committee this year. I guess I'll start the thread for him.

I've missed out on the last 2 years since my car is JSB more often than not. I'd like to make the Shootout this year though if I can. So, who's planning on going?

...And of course, a motivational pic from last year's shootout courtesy of Mike V.

Definitely bring the longboard. 1501 is still JSB. I keep adding more to my to do list, the closer I get to being finished. I'm not going to cut it as close as I have previous years though (trimming leaking fuel filler neck the morning of haha)

Well I didn't plan on attending this year because I had made plans to go to the Bahamas around the same time. But I have just ended a long term relationship with the person that I was going there with. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif

So it looks like I may be going to the Shootout again this year for the fourth time in a row. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Well, 820 seems to be running well enough to make the trip if 1837 doesn't want to play nice. Maybe I'll put a hitch on 820 and drag 1837 along /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/rofl.gif

true that brother. it has always been a fun time going to the shootout. hell i travel all the way from Washington last year and going to try and do it again if i can this year. no car in tow and i might even have it sold before the middle of the summer if i can. but definitely always try to make the shootout. going to try and bring my long board so i dont have to walk the parking lot. a quart mile from drag strip to autocross is quite the walk man., /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/devil.gif

Still not sure if I'll be making it this year. Just got so much to do to the cars for the next 6-8 months. But who knows, we'll see how it goes.
