As someone who was intimately involved in the planning and execution of this event throughout the 80's and into the mid-90's, this is DEFINITELY one serious Ford event and one you don't want to miss. It rivals the SAAC National Convention in every way. My favorite part of the meet is the high-performance event at Hallett Motor Racing Circuit. If any of you guys are interested in trying your car out on a pure road circuit, Hallett is a good place to do it. It's a very technical track and an absolute hoot to drive a Saleen on. As a matter of fact, that's where the Saleen bug bit me back in '88; I got to drive a new '88 on Hallett that year and, when I finally parted company with my beloved '65 G.T. 350 in '94, I bought my first '89 Saleen.

Has anybody heard from Irl Collins yet as to whether or not he's going? I haven't seen Irl for years!!

By the way, I'm hoping to get some serious originality pointers from you guys on Fox Saleens. My goal with 89-233 is to put it to completely stock condition. It's not too far from that now, but I'm just not as familiar with the Fox cars as I am the old original Mustangs. I'll be all ears for you guys!!!

See you guys at the car show on Sunday,
Andy Walker
89-233
