That's bad and great news Cam, so glad to hear she has improved! I also missed this years show and was bummed about it but look out CO! lol

I was wondering whether you made it to Gateway, Tony.

Colorado Springs is a cool town, and of course the proximity to Rambler Ranch will make it very special.  It's also a relatively easy 10 hour drive for me, so that will be nice.

I stopped in Colorado Springs in 2014 on the way back from Charleston, SC. It's a beautiful place and look forward to going back!

huh, Colo Springs. though i'm constitutionally opposed to planning anything that far ahead, i added it to my calendar. so much AMC stuff is back east, a bit far. i've got friends in Santa Fe NM, i'll drive up 25 in a few hours from there. Rambler or roadster. june isn't too hot yet.

i haven't been to an AMO National since St. Louis in... 1998 or whenever it was. drove up from Tucson with the Cactus Cruisers crowd, including John Elle in his stupid-fast Spirit. i had my '75 V8 Levi's Gremlin.

i look forward to meeting a bunch of you. too bad you're not driving in billd, would love to see your work up close.

I will be there - likely with the SX4 behind the pickup. Doubtful it will be in the show - as far as judging. Can't take a car "restored" that many years ago and driven that many thousands of miles up against cars that have never actually seen a highway since being fully redone - rotisserie type restorations when mine was never stripped on the underside. By next year mine will have been put together over 5 years, the interior 7 years old by then, so...... can't sit next to cars only 3 years since being done. Paint is already showing its age. 

My wife MAY come along although she'll spend most of her time in the hotel or sight-seeing the area.
When I got back from the show this summer she asked where it is next year - I told her. 
She said she'd never been into the Rocky Mountains - other than flying over.......... and she asked if I wanted company on the way. Sure, are you kidding? She'll likely take her sewing machine and a bunch of stuff to work on but will want to see the sights, too. She dislikes car shows - they bore her.

other than the 75 Levi's Gremlin, i've never had a "restored" car. probably obviously so. i won't be showing, if there's  field i'll pay to be on it, etc. my cars are all experienced heavy drivers.

it would be great to meet you.

CO is imho the northern, eastern, edge of the part of the US that i have found fascinating since my first exposure to it as a 15 yr old Massachusetts kid. deserts high and low. if your wife doesn't mind driving there's flatly amazing terrain to see, utterly alien relative to the midwest! a random loop west and back from Colo Sprgs would be beautiful (but you could do a wee bit of research and make it non-random :-)

my agonizing choice will be, do i go through Santa Fe and friends? (i see often)? or drive through UT and CO that i rarely drive? i think i just answered my question.

Tom, I'm near Sedona Az and am hoping to drive my '72 Javelin up to COS. If you're interested maybe we could caravan up from here or could meet somewhere like Flagstaff. Suzanne and Matt Edmonds are in Flag and have several AMCs they drive, so maybe they'd like to join in? Haven't talked to any of the Cactus Cruiser crowd yet, but we have some drivers in there too. COS is about 11-12 hours from here via I-40/25. I-25 north of Santa Fe is beautiful country and doesn't have a lot of traffic on it between Santa Fe and Pueblo CO.

hey that sounds like a plan, man! i'm open to that. sounds fun.

Flag is my W to E stopping point. i often camp at Sunset Crater Volcano Nat'l Monument (Bonito Campground i think it is). so anywhere Sedona to Flagstaff is easy for me. OK it's a bit early for details but yeah i'll watch this board, PM me, email is tom at sr-ix.com.

good idea!

there's a lot of great driving up there.
