I'm planning on coming.

Also planning on keeping it out of the snowbanks this year. Well, that was the plan last year too, but the snowbanks were real agressive last year.

Back on topic subie fans T-Bird is 16 hours of winter driving . You have to stay on the road and on time the whole way .. This is not a few hot laps .. This is hours and hours of roads you do not know in winter conditions . Subaru has dominated this event since 2000 . Its only a question of which subie will Win . Who can drive in winter conditions . Step up .. no experience required . lol

Nicki and I will be there!

If I can get the clutch for the WRX fixed in time - there is NO WAY I am taking my IS300 on those roads

Maybe if the WRX is not fixed, I can drive my 22' cube van :P
