Mustang Week in Myrtle Beach is Sept 2-8, and it's a 6 hour trip from VA to NC. Sounds interesting. I wonder if I can make it all work out....

KenAsh is still thinking on it. I did the Last Grand National our Club hosted (Sept. 2011), just not sure yet. It's a ton of prep to mount a serious challenge. If it works out, we'll take the RV.

Was just looking over the costs associated with this Grand National. Unless I read rules incorrectly, because I'm considered "modified" it will cost me $350 to register. Assuming, due to my list of Mods, I have to register as Modified, as I was classified in 2011.
They do show a listing for "Modified" under the "Judged" entry.
What's the difference? This is $75.

Need re-enlist my MCA membership. $25
Judged Entry .....................................$75
Extreme Modified Division ..............................$250
(What ever this is?)

As mentioned, I've already checked "Attended a Grand National" off my bucket list.

Again, the 3 local hotels are sold out.

Inside spaces are sold out.

Existing membership ($0)
Judged Entry ($75)
Friday Night Social ($25)
Saturday Night buffet dinner ($70)

Payment Total:$95.00

Where are the rules for the entry classes? There is a modified in the $75 judged section, but not sure what might push it to the Extreme category?

I'm not sure if this one will work out for me, but either way, I am planning on going to the one here in Melbourne FL next year.

After submitting my post above, I fired off an email to the G/N contact email address regarding the "Extreme Modified". This morning I received the following courteous response:
"Hi
Modified extreme cars are cars that are wild and have extreme modifications ..cars must have at least 2 major modifications in each of the 5 areas. This would include custom fabrication, disassembly, extensive cutting or welding.
Cars will be judged on the lift. I hope this helps
Thanks

No worries for me then. Normal registration with modified option. Modified carb, A/C compressor and headers. Least I hope that is all they see.

Based on my experience, your entry in the modified division, you are asked to list "all" of your mods. In 2011, I submitted 3 Page brochure of all of my mods. Noted below. The difference these days, are my WEBER carbs.

I took the spring washer out of the Low/Reverse clutch pack and installed an extra friction and steel. I replaced the Forward band accumulator with a B&M version. I have a gear drive instead of chain, and a Comp Cams cam and lifters.
