I arranged a suprise party for the wife's 50th birthday. She was totally unaware until she walked in. Now she doesn't believe me about this Summer rally. She wants to know where, when, how many people are going to be there etc. I told her it looks like about 6-12 cars so far...OK, that didn't help...I find it hilarious that she thinks I'm making this up.

My oldest son (24) wants to go too but.... sorry, no back seat....
