We will be in PF on Thursday evening this year as well, we decided to drive straight through leaving home that morning, I think it is a 12 hour drive not counting pit stops for us. This year we are going to drive my wife kiddie car (Focus) instead of the truck so I may not be able to walk by the time we arrive there :roll:

Looking forward to seeing that Comet in person.

See Ya,
Mike

That's one sick-looking Comet! Love the look, can't wait to hear how well she performs! Wish I could see it in person at Pigeon Forge, but I won't be able to catch it this time. Great job getting this classic to where it is now, hope you have a safe trip!

Hey, M&M....if Maxine can make it to the west coast and back, PF should be a cake walk. You need to plan on coming next year. :wink:
