Anyone from Utah signed up and driving their Roadster down???
I'm headed down from Spanish Fork. The Roadster will be on a trailer. The wife wants to be a little more comfortable for the long drive.

Gotta suggestion for the organizers of the show. I flew down a couple of years ago to attend the festivities. Met a lot of great people and saw some awesome cars. Found some difficulty when meeting the new people to put the "real" name to the 311s screen name. How about providing name tags for those with entered cars with their given name along with the screen name? That will help those first timers and non-regulars feel more comfortable at the show. FWIW Pat

That is a great idea. I usually have my 311 name on my t-shirt, but if everyone had one a badge with their name and 311 names, it would make roadster people identification easier. It could even just be available or a blank thrown into the packet, People could fill it out on their own. Kinda late for this year but I think it's a great idea.

Finally getting some time today to work on the car. 10 days to go!

Thanks for the offer I appreciate it. I'm flying into San Diego. I have a couple of old friends down south who want to come to the show. We all went a couple of years ago. They're anxious to go again. I get in on Thursday and leave on Tuesday kinda making a get-a-way out of it.
Thanks again

Registered and staying at Svensgaard with my wife.
Will be driving the roadster up there on Friday.

Simon, if you end up coming on Fri, we could drive there together. Planning on taking the scenic route along the coast if anyone else is interested and departing from LA!

Manu, send me a text again. I lost most of my contacts. I think I will go up on Friday seeing as how the Roadster should be good to go
