Off CR1 just south of Beltrees, west side. We can probably walk out our doors and yell at each other.

I've seen the white one. Probably because of the logo that I remember it. I don't get out alot because I work at home from 3am to 1-2pm daily. My "evenings" are about the worst time to drive around here.

CR1 is Keene Rd. Beltrees is 2 lights south of Main (580). I live in the condo just past the intersection on the right heading south. Next light is Union.

Best date yet! I'll be there. My kids were really pissed I was going to a "TBird" event on my birthday (24th) and making them wait. They really don't understand. I know they were planning to take to me to Chucky Cheese to pay me back! Now I guess I'll have to fake a business trip for the 24th but KeyWest is nice and restful that time of year. They already resent the TBird enough. (spending there inheritance)

Anyone want to join from O-Town? I'm thinking about setting up a mini-meet for breakfast in Orlando, then caravan out to Howard Park together if there's enough people coming from here.

Also, so you guys can keep up with us, here's the link to the MarkVIII.org thread:

As far as when to meet for breakfast, I was thinking around 8ish. That'll give us two hours to sit down, eat, and hang out before heading out around 10. (Google Earth clocks the trip from my house to Howard Park at around 2 hours and some change.)

Where? I'm open to ideas from anyone local who has them. There's always the usual chains nearby (IHOP, Waffle House, etc) but I was wondering if maybe someone knew a place that was a little more unique which would be open that early for breakfast.

How do you guys feel about TooJay's for breakfast? A friend of mine at work recommended them, and there's one on Dr. Phillip's Blvd just off of Sand Lake road. They open at 8 and aren't even a mile from I-4. Estimated travel time on Google Earth from there to Howard Park is 2 hours, 8 minutes.

Okay, here's who I've got attending so far, from the threads on each forum. An asterisk is next to the people who have expressed interest in the Orlando mini-meet breakfast. Let us know if your info here is wrong, or you don't think you'll make it to one or both of the meets.

TCCoA:

ExecutiveHydra - '95 Thunderbird LX & '97 Thunderbird LE
Bradone - '93 Thunderbird LX
*T-BIRDS281E (AKA: Lincoln-S281E) - '95 Thunderbird LX & '97/'98 Mark VIII LSC (What year is that Mark, Shaun?)
94V8Thunderbird - '94 Thunderbird LX
*Boss102371 - '94 Thunderbird

MarkVIII.org:

jamies97LSC - '98 Mark VIII LSC & '93 Mark VIII
*95prlmarkviii - '95 Mark VIII
*Iszi - '93 Mark VIII
*Asysz - '97 Mark VIII LSC & '94 Mark VIII
Destroyer + Guest - '95 Mark VIII /'98 Mark VIII (Which of your marks are you bringing, or both?) & '04 Mach 1
te1966 - '94 Mark VIII
toymkviii - Unknown Mark VIII

So, that's a total of 12 members from both forums with possibly 17 vehicles +/- for the meet at Howard Park! And that's not even counting other family/friends that might be coming along! For the Orlando mini-meet breakfast I see 5 members, and +/- 7 cars! Sounds like July 1st is going to be the best FL meet we've had in awhile, if not ever!

I'll make another post with some links to maps and stuff, and more details of the whens and wheres to make sure everyone's on the same page.

I think it might also be good for someone to be the primary contact for each event in case people get lost or something on the way. I can take that part for the Orlando group, so if anyone coming to the Orlando mini-meet needs my number please PM me.

i do not recommend eating at an IHOP in orlando or you'll have the bubbleguts from here to tarpon springs

waffle houses are pretty good, and some even take visa/mc now

i'd love to come, but i work weekends, and birdie still down with a broken tail feather
