Like last year, I'll be at all the stops in my yellow LS6 Powered Ultima GTR,
If I don't break it at the Hot Rod Pump Gas Drags. Hopefully it'll be making more power by then.
:drive: I'm leaving from Amarillo on Friday, heading to Arlington for the start. I'll be going for the long haul. :drive: SOM Firehawk.

I am from KC, and am interested in getting F-body owners together at hotels too. I will be a long hauler again this year. I plan on leaving very early from KC and will be staying at the "Fairfield Inn Arlington" June 5th ($71.25). For Tulsa, I am at the "Tulsa Days Inn" June 6th ($42). That is all I have for now. I will post update later today for other hotels.
IT would be great to get a group together from the Kansas City area, and others passing through KC.
The trip to Arlington is not that bad, I have a shortcut down to Tulsa, then Interstate all the way.

I hope it is OK to post this again here, in case people don't see it.
OK, this is what I have found. It is cheaper to make reservations yourself. You need to do it ASAP though. Let's get F-bodies at same hotels. I chose these for location, quality and price. All prices are the AAA rate and do not include tax which runs 10% to 14%!
Arlington, TX - Fairfield Inn Arlington ($71.25 online at www.marriott.com)
backup for Arlington-Courtyard by Mariott ($85 online " ")
Tulsa, OK - Days Inn ($43 online at www.daysinn.com)
Springfield, MO - LaQuinta Inn ($72 to $89 online www.lq.com
St. Louis, MO - Fairfield Inn St. Louis Collinsville IL $70 to $89 (+11% tax) at
St. Louis, MO - Backup Fairfield Inn St. Louis Fairview Heights, IL $76 (AAA rate) to $96 at www.marriott.com
Davenport, IA - Comfort Inn Riverview Le Claire, IA ($54 at www1.choicehotels.com THIS is a little Rivertown close to where activity is. It is a place to remember and the hotel is ran by a very nice family. We'll have fun, but they might not want our loud cars back!
Arlington Heights - PENDING Site is closer to Rolling Meadows.
Green Bay, WS - Hampton Inn Green Bay, WI $63.90 (AAA rate) to $74 at
www.hamptoninn.com I actuall made mine through travelocity.com but you should do yours direct to assure yourself a room.
LET'S GET ALL THE F-BODIES TOGETHER!!!
