We will be Speedstering up to Petit Jean this Friday for the 64th Annual. I haven't been in 40 years; used to go every year. It's a 350 mile drive from Madison thru the Mississippi and Arkansas delta. You don't get into the mountains (small m) until past Little Rock. This the largest show/swap meet in the area. Used to make hotel reservations on the 2nd of January to be sure you could get a room. Somehow, Candy was able to book ours 3 weeks ago due to a cancellation at the Lodge.

MOTTA (Midamerica Old Time Automobile Association) is based in Memphis. This is not a European venue; mostly American made, but I would bring whatever sports car I was driving, at the time, and was always well received.

The highest point is Magazine Mountain, 2,753 ft, that's about 2,000 ft. higher than Mississippi.

Looks like there's little interest in this subject...

Not enough Speedster/Spyder owners down this way. Any of you American loving, peaceable, law abiding folks interested in relocating to the land of milk and honey; we'd love to have you (bring your Speedster/Spyder).

Weather, this weekend, in Arkansas looking good, but 90% chance of rain at home means we won't be going in the Speedster. Tropical depression in the Gulf insures rain on the return trip. Don't think wife would like 6 hours of wet in the Speedster. The Z4 will have to do.

We're already in the 90's with very high humidity. Common weather in the South.
