Toniot61. Is the cruise a benefit thing? If so, what's the entry cost? Am thinking about going but don't have a truck. Well I do, but don't do cruisin with it, as it is just a standard truck. Recenlty bought little red car, '99 mtang GT. blackstang78 is considering going too. Don't know where he is located, but for me it is a hundred mile drive to your off point then across lake to Lakefront, and I live about 55 miles SW of New Orleans, so it's an unnecessary expense. Regardless, have to see if wifey has any plans or if she wants to go. If I decide to go will try to let you guys know as I am new to these sites. I have been looking for your post for two days and finally found it, again. (I am old and not too computer savvy either, so please forgive my too-long-chatter).
Do you have any idea how many sure cruisers you will have yet? Feel it might be unnecessary for me to go up there if there are, say, only 10 cruisers. I mean I wouldn't be adding much in as much as numbers are concerned. If you could get something together and post possible amount of attendees, it might be encouraging to others to go up there and join you. If I go it really would only be to put one more number in the cruises. I think the more the merrier, and would like to be there, so will keep checking on this site for the next couple of days. I will try to monitor your posts to see how the roundup is going.
As said, I am new, so have to learn.
For instance, I have been searching the net for vendors selling convertible top boots for a 99 GT convertible. Seems there are some advertised for '93s to 98s. Then it jumps from 2000 to 2004, but none for the 1999. Can't figure that out. The paperwork in the GT I have shows how to remove and attach the boot, but there doesn't seem to be any boots for the car. I am dumbfounded and don't know where to go. Possibly someone of tang knowledge might have some advice at your cruise.
Again will let you know if I can make it, and if I do, blackstang78 may go as well. It would give me opportunity to meet him.
Thanks for all information and for setting up the cruise. I hope you don't mind someone in their 70s tagging along.
Hope you are having a great day.
