Good man Tom!
I am sure there are many kids that wish their father took the same approach as you are!!

I wish I was going to have my car back.. but not likely.. so I might fly down to Hotlanta just to check it out... :x

I'm hoping that they spend Friday and Saturday around Atlanta hitting most of the filmed sites. From Atlanta to Texarkana real time is 6 hours each way. If I can get off Thursday, I'll head down. I can write him a note for school if I have to 8) and bring him to see the fun. We can head home Sunday morning. Its a 12 hour drive back home. Have to wait for more info to be availible to make concrete plans.

This should be an awesome event! I don't know yet if I can make it but I'm sure gonna try. I won't have the '77 SE yet but I can bring the red car... it'll be fun either way. We owe a lot to that movie.

I am planning on going. And there is no way my daughter will let me go without her. Looks like i need to be sure the car is ready for the heat. Maybe i should change rear end gears before this trip. Anybody got a spare set of 3.08's?

3.73's......about 3400 rpm at 70 mph.

without cruise it's a long ride.

Ta2dbandit -- yeah, 3.73:1s can get kind of "droney" on the road for a long time -- great on the strip and local streets, not so great for a long road trip. :?  8)

Hope you guys have a great time....sounds like a top trip.
Tom, whats a day or two of school in the long run, share the memories with your son on the trip...have a good time together and I'm sure he'll remember that a lot more fondly than a school class.....lol. Good on ya for putting him first in your life.
Don't know whats going on with his mother....my girlfriend has two boys and they are the number 1 thing in her life...ahead of me, totally understandable and I love and respect her for that.....I don't think I'd want to be with someone who'd so lightly "ditch" their child.
Regards,
Leigh

Yea Leigh, if I gotta yank him for two days what the heck. :D I'm leaning to rolling out Thursday morning and getting in Atlanta that evening around dinner time. Hanging out Friday and Saturday, and heading home Sunday. Or heading home Saturday if they head West for Texas.
