COUNT ME IN. I am coming home from Germany to be there. I am stationed in Germany through the Army, but I live in Florida, and I would love to be there. So the fee is $25, can I pay when I get there, or do I have to send it early. Anyways, I won't be bringing my Taurus Wagon, it is Germany. But I own a nice 98 Ford Contour back at home, I'll be coming in that, is that ok?

a contour? that's awesome man, you can bring whatever you want, i think ;)

i think we're going to be way outnumbered by probes anyways :D

Hey, it's a ford :D

Imagine bringing a Taurus to a FTW FL Chapter meet with the F-150's haha. Back then I used to have a 2002 Ranger.

And yes the contour is more than welcome. $25 is correct. And you can pay when you get to the event. Just arrive and pay before 9:30

Not sure on the Probe turn out at this point. I will let you know soon.
The autox will have many diff cars. The last one had a Ferrari, Porsch, and many others.

Awesome Guys I cant wait!  Should make good some good video clips!


Robert :ph34r:
That is what I am saying, I am bringing my digital camera, and wants lots of good video. So I can show my friends over here in Germany what the Taurus is made of. Will I be allowed to run my Contour on the track, it is the 2.0 DOHC one. I don't know how it will do, but with stopwatch test I did a long time ago back at home, it does 0-60 in like 11 secs.

EDIT: Here is a Picture of my Contour. I gave the car to my mom when I joined the Army 1 1/2 years ago. But when I go home, I will be using it.

The contour will do just fine. And everyone bring as much camera stuff as you can. I need some good shots of the Probe and some video if anyone can do it. I have a gmail account witch has 1 gig of storage so emailing the pics and video will be no prob. This will be fun. Oh and I have a Probe member bringing a ZX2 so that should give the contour something to run against. We have a 99 Contour and I think that it handles very well for a stock car. The Falken 512's helped as well.

:( I want to go, but Florida is so damn long. What is it like a 7-8 hour drive from Fort Lauderdale? I have also been running on four almost slicks, and one tire has a nail in it so there is no way I would make a trip over 300 miles like this. I am holding up for the new Ventus tires to be released here in Florida at the end of the month.

Are you waiting for the Ventus 212. 200 compound. If so that is what I will be getting as well.

Nah the 212 isn't offered in the 225/55 16 size. :angry: I have been waiting for the H105. This tire has about the same performance as the K104, but has better all season performance and twice the snow performance for the suckers up there that get that funny white stuff. I love the looks of the tire and it looks like it will be a long lasting tire that hopefully can last past 20,000 miles. My UltraZ's from the Futura line at Pepboys, wore out in under 18,000. They have felt kind of rough whenever you go over 80 MPH lately too. I will be making some phone calls to get these by next week. It is funny when I call the warehouse, because they say everyone has been calling on that model tire. They showcased it last year at the SEMA show and now everyone is waiting for it to roll out.

I am still definitely coming. I am enjoying my tour in America. I am in Maryland right now, and going to NY tommarrow. I am bringing with me there, an imported from Germany bottle of Taurus wine. My Contour is running just fine. It is getting me everywhere I need to go. Can't wait to see everyone.
