    I know Dave's planning on coming down out of Ohio, little bro 98CobraClone is coming down, but who else is planning on coming to Nashville for the big bash?? I'll be making the trip from West Tn possibly without my II since I won't be able to make it home to get it before the show.
    But I'd like to keep my eyes open for specific people when I'm up in Nashville in a couple weeks.

    I'll be there with my 88 Texas Hwy Patrol car. I've coordinated our own class and leading the parade into Downtown Thursday night. My II isn't finished yet. Still need a few NOS parts and regular parts that I can't find anywhere (78 2.3l) to get it on the road.

    I'm also doing the Mustangs Across America. Out of 330 cars registered not 1 II. In the past we've had at least 1 or 2.

    The Mustang club I'm in was talking about this last year, and they said hotels will be booked months in advance. Is this true? If I'm not doing anything that weekend, I might be up for a trip out there. Haven't taken the Cobra on a road trip in a while.

    My older bro was in Lebanon which is where the track actually is a few months ago, and all the hotels in that area are already booked up, but I'm one of the luck ones to have a bunch of family around Nashville.

    just passing through,never posted in this forum.i love going to car shows and seeing mustangs i don't get to see all that much,so i'm hoping the mustang II will be well represented.i'll be looking for those in addition to various T5s,SVO,also '79 to '81 cobras,cobra Rs,etc.,etc.i hope it won't be all '65 and 5.0L fox mustangs.don't get me wrong,i love those cars,an '83 GT is my favorite,but different mustangs is what i'm into seeing!see ya'll there!

    As Stang2 said......I'll be there, but the II will be at home.

    If all else fails.......take a pillow with you and sleep in the car at the rest area, haha

    push the front seats all the way up fold down the back seat, and lay your head on the spare tire hump. Of course I'm only 5'8" and I'll pulled that tricked when I was accompanied by a lovely young lady. I'm not sure how much of a radius from the show the hotels are locked up though. I'm sure something about an hour radius should be available. I think some of the campgrounds may be available, but not for sure, since I didn't call about any of em. www.mustang.org has information about different places. I hope to see every body there, I know I'll be able to spot Dave as long as he has his car there. But as far as anybody else, I'll just be able to spot my bros and nephew since they'll be wit me,

    shame is that it will be impossible to lay the seats back if/when I get a cage

    I'll be there with my 78 Ghia Coupe. Finishing up getting the car ready this weekend. Can't wait to get to the show and see all the other Mustangs, especially the II! We're coming down Thursday night. I go to some of the other All Ford shows in Illinois and Missouri, not too many though. I usually go to maybe 3 a year. If you see me, come up and say hi. Look forward to talking with other II owners.

    for me it would depend on what weekend it is, cuz I work every other weekend, so that makes a few things difficult. Guy I bought my 92 off of goes to the NMRA event at bowling green everytime it shows up, and it was a 5 hour drive from where I used to live (southern Ohio), But I think Bowling Green is only about 4 hours from here so it wouldn't be that bad of a drive
