    If I can work everything out, I'll be there. It's about ten hours of driving, but I like long trips. I might rent a car, to keep the miles down, but the Phaeton could use a good workout, so we'll see. It couldn't be better that your having it in May lol.

    Heck, if you're worried about the Phaeton, just bring the '90! Its almost as cool, plus it'll get atleast 4MPG better on the highway!

    I could take the '90, not that I care about 4mpg though lol. If I cared about mpg, would I be here? But the 425 is so cool on the highway. I dunno, we'll see.

    I'd take the '83, but the trip would roll it over to 50,000 miles, which I dread.

    Re: Midwest meet in Spring, '07

    J count me in! I can help to organize as well. Just let me know whats up!

    I can get ahold of some people at Eddyville and see about gettin us some time on the drag strip. Im sure alot of people would love that! We could have a day at the strip on Saturday and then the actual meet on Sunday. Saturday night we can do some partyin and drinkin! I can also see about getting us a group rate at a nice hotel.

    We should shoot for the second to last weekend in May. the last weekend is Memorial day and I know alot of people probably already have travel plans. I normally go to the Lake of the Ozarks for that weekend and my family gets pissed if i dont go! LOL

    Let me know!

    You rock, dude! Yeah, I don't even think about the track thing--come on, man, I've got a 5.0 L '91 Brougham. I don't ever think of racing it! LOL!
    I would really like your help, actually, if you have contacts and stuff down there. I'm working on Betts (for the location site) and the Cadillac/LaSalle club (having them join us for the show). I can do the hotel reservations, if you would get us in to Eddyville, that would be awesome. Maybe you and I could arrange one special dinner out or something at a nice restaurant in Des Moines. Entertainment could be yours if you want. I'm married, so I can't be heading over to "The Lumberyard" or "Big Earl's Gold Mine," so you can plan that kind of stuff. LOL!!!

    PM me your e-mail address, and I'll send you mine.

    Thanks for the offer of help--we'll make this an awesome show!

    Nick, I love the idea of having a race day on Saturday! Even if my 4.9L deVille is good for a low 16, it would be fun to see what everyone else could do! Nothing that's very competitive, just for fun!

    I'd be in for a little track action. It'd be fun to see what Isabella could actually do compared to a bone-stock Brougham. I suppose I could take the tools out of the trunk, might get me into the 17.2x's.

    Re: Midwest meet in Spring, '07

    Actually, a bone stock '91 Brougham with the 350 is good for a 17.1, I'd imagine Isabella (when did you come up with that?) would be good for a 16.9 or so.

    I'd love to see Isabella race JRau's 305 Brougham. I wanna see what difference 45 cubes actually makes!

    Re: Midwest meet in Spring, '07

    Sounds good guys! We will have to get some CTS's and Northstars so I have some worthy competition at the track! LOL, I kid I kid!

    I can DEFINATELY take the entertainment and dinner portion. Before I set all this in motion we need to get some dates set. I know a couple strippers at one of the better clubs around Des Moines, LOL! Saturday night I would have some good bars/clubs to go to and get torn up. I would put us in a good location so no driving would be required. Im not really much into clubs but if guys wanted to Im down. I prefer bars where you can actually converse! I guess Im getting old! LOL! As for strip clubs thats a real possibility also- up to you guys. The strip clubs around here are open until like 6am and it is BYOB. I know all the best restaurants so I can line that up also. I would just need to know what kind of price range before picking a restaurant.

    At this point we need to let the thread mature and see how many people we get.

    Strip bars could be fun! I'll be like the only one there not drunk though, as I'm only 19.

    I'll go to the bars, but I won't set foot in a strip bar. Chad, I'll accidentally buy too many drinks and need help with them....
