I so want to be there but sans lightbar would be no fun. If anyone has a good lightbar for an 04WRX let me know so that my 15yo daughter can follow her brother's footsteps into rallying.

Anyone who bets against her doing better than her brother is going to lose.

Seriously, if any of you want to drive for hours and hours on really nice snow covered roads do it at T-Bird 2006. These are the best road conditions we've had for more than 5 years. The rain in Vancouver does countfor something.

I'm working on a lightbar for my 06...hopefully have it ready for checkpointing T-bird. If it works out, I'll let you know and maybe we can make a few.

Just so people don't get discouraged from entering - I did 4 T-birds with just stock Ford Focus headlights and it was super fun. Always wanted more light, but it didn't dampen the experience at all.

On another note.... I need some winter tires and wheels - anyone have some steelies or takeoffs with winter tread?

Thanks!
Warwick
