My husband and I would like to go this year. His Mach *might* be ready to go by the end of April. I know it sounds kind of ridiculous, but a big issue I have with going and taking my car is worrying about it at motel(s) along the way and especially in LA. I'm afraid I'd have to sleep in it every night to guard my shaker. And where would I park it while attending the show? Coming up to Seattle for the Pony Trails was hard enough on me, I don't know if I can take LA in my car! I am also considering driving the "D" code down--a much quieter and less conspicuous ride, but nowhere near as "cool" as my Cobra Jet.
