As ZCON alumni, I got the announcement for registration (starts April 1) yesterday.

I don't know if:
1) I want to tow that far (I'm in Alabama)
2) my car will be put back together in time, but

ZCON Memphis was a lot of fun. Who's planning to attend in Austin?

Austin is 45 minutes away from me.  I'll definitely make it.

I'm tempted to, but the likelihood is actually slim.

I had planned on it when I saw the initial announcement. Not to take anything away from the fine H2R, but if the track day was at COTA I would have found a way to make it happen.

'84 300ZXT- Stock
'79 280zx- Stock (except for dents, rust, and dead rodents)
'80 280ZX- Not stock
