    Apologies for being a bit tardy responding: I can say that the indicated miles per hour began with 1 and was 3 digits long.
    Northeast bound and DOWN

    I've registered the Red Baron (class O) and have met the organizer of the event, Bob Cloutier, who is in the Denver area. I hope to have it cleaned up, and we'll drive out to present and meet up.
    I understand that about 450 Mustangs have already registered.

    Excellent! We've been in contact with Bob, seems like a nice guy. We've got 3 cars entered in the autocross. We're looking forward to seeing the Red Barron outside of it's cave for the first time in several years.
    There's nothing more to see here, now move along...

    It made the trip to its new home in Boulder consuming a respectable ~24 MPG average.

    Pics soon.
    Wow....

    I hope you stick around to answer questions.

    Glad it went to a good home!
