Title: Take Your Best Shot..
Post by: 0F02G109403 on January 23, 2005, 07:54:06 pm
I'm offering up a free beer/pitcher to the one who can come closest to guessing the actual number of BOSS Cars at the Nationals.

I know, big deal.  Just something to do while we wait for the calander to roll.  

My guess  157

Skip says 110

Come on guys out of the more than 8000 that rolled out of Ford. And the biggest event for the best car ever built. I'll say that some people are waiting for the last minute to tell the other half (female or male),I know there are alot of female mustang collectors out there. I'll say minimum of 300.Just get in the car and go, it will only be the first reunion once. Make history with your car that has earned it.

I just want to find an overpass to watch everyone drive by from.  That's going to be a good view.

I say 215....

Well, if there's free beer involved, I have to make a guess also. I'm going to say 192 pre-registered with 171 actual cars showing.

Hello All!

I just joined this forum this afternoon but I have been watching it for a month or more.

Two things;
At first I wished that I had guessed '302' but now I'm thinking that number is too low!!  It seems to going up exponentially.  So my designated driver (my 18 yr old son) insisted that I go with "429"!!!!  How could I argue?!!

Secondly, all of you from the "Great White North" take note and get your maps out for a second.  I am from Toledo which is the intersection of I-75 (N/S) and I80-90 (E/W).  Toledo is 8-9 hours from Carlisle, and one of the local Ford dealers (Brondes Ford of Maumee) has  agreed to allow us the use of their lot to meet on Wed afternoon and again Thur morning for the last leg of the journey to Carlisle.  

I just heard back from them today.  It's probable that they will be willing to do more than just provide an area to meet.  The person I talked to was going to talk to the GM about what else they may do!

Soooo....
If you think that this is the corridor that you will take, let me know ASAP.  I obviously must let them know what to expect.

Thanks All

From Columbus to Carlisle will be non stop besides fuel and bathroom breaks. We are hooking up with others in New Stanton, PA where the I-70 & I-76 meet so we will stop there briefly.

I need to be in Carlisle before 3:00pm on the 2nd.

Post by: lovehamr on February 06, 2005, 12:43:05 am
Hey Skip, do you know a guy named Rusty in San Antonio? Heavily into Boss 2s and 9s, used to run the Texas Shelby meets. If you do, can you yank his chain?  I haven't gotten to much of a response out of him.
Steve
Title: Take Your Best Shot..
Post by: bossskip302 on February 06, 2005, 05:06:33 am
Steve, don't know him, however I think I have visited with him on the phone last year. Wayne Blue here in Stephenville may know him. He's an icon in the Shelby world benn running and racing Shelby meets since 84'
I'll see Wayne Monday.
Title: Take Your Best Shot..
Post by: lovehamr on February 06, 2005, 09:11:31 am
That's a good idea Skip.  If you remember ask Wayne to yank his chain about the reunion.
Title: Wow!
Post by: 0F02G109403 on March 20, 2005, 06:44:52 pm

So what was the final count? Hooters was such a mess I never made good on my offer. I thought I heard 275 at one point during the weekend? I need to send the winner a do it yourself pitcher kit.

Len-
The other Dave Peterson also did a count on Saturday and he has great attention to detail.  I think his count was close to yours.  Dave you out there?
Hey Mark- you back in the groove?  Was everything in good order when you got back?

Post by: 9F02G196848 on June 27, 2005, 12:39:36 pm
We had 275 registered total. But the best count we can come up with is about 230 actual cars.
