Mustang 50th Anniversary Charlotte 2014
#1
How many people are really serious about making the trip to Charlotte in 2014? I have a friend in the hotel business and could possibly have a block of rooms set aside for us but need to know if people are serious.

Roy,

I am TRULY going and will be with a friend who has a 35K original owner/mileage 70 Boss that will be shipped with my car. We both plan to drive our other mustangs to the show. I have my calender at work marked for March 2013 to book a room. According to the hotels in the area this is the earliest I could book. If you need any further specific details please PM me. I am positively going.

Brian

Does your contact have any Embassy Suites connections? This is the closest hotel to the track. Wife would like the spa.

I've already let my family know that I plan on going. So I'm about fairly certain I will make it. Not sure if I will be taking the 04 Mach 1 or the 73 Convertible.

The Hampton Inn chain is where my wife and I always try to stay, so this sounds good to me unless you can find a hotel with covered parking Tongue

Hopefully towing my brothers Boss 302 to Vegas. That's his goal to have it done by then. If not I will be taking my 89 GT.

Embassy Suites are also affiliated with the Hilton brand alongside Hampton Inns. We also stay at Hampton Inns when on the road so I am not saying that is a great choice as well. My thought was the Embassy Suites was just a bit closer and more in the center of the show activity. I am fine with whatever your friend can do and I REALLY appreciate you looking into this. It helps to get a bit ahead on the planning process so I can spend more time getting the car ready. I have alot to get done in 15 months starting in September. That is the latest update on when the bodywork will be done.

Looked at google maps for this hotel ... Looks like coming from the hotel to the track, you must turn Right on Concord Pkwy and then do a U turn at Moorhead rd. to head back to the track. That should be exciting.
