Hey Bernie, the preconvention tour sounds like a great plan and have a safe trip. I am leaving either early Thursday morning, the 16th, or possibly Wednesday evening on the 15th. So yea, caravanning is not an option. My 164 LS is dark blue. I just got it back from the mechanic where he swapped out a new timing belt and water pump, plus changed oil and transmission fluids, as well as lubricated all doors, hinges, and other maintenance items. The car is running great and it should be an uneventful trip as far as the car is concerned. Hopefully when I get onto IH-40 heading to Nashville I may run into some other Alfas.
We are staying at the hotel from Thursday through Saturday night and returning back on Sunday. I will be around on Friday washing the car, and at the concurs on Saturday. Come by and say hello if you can. I will also look out for your black Volt.
Safe travels and cheers!
