John, thank you for all the work you've done with all the show information. You are a credit to the club, and the hobby in general. The effort is noticed, and appreciated.

If I were in Toronto area, It'd be a 'for sure', from me. It's a bit over 16 hours drive. One hotel stop. It'd be quite an adventure, and hopefully I can do it at some point. Carlisle looks like an amazing event. I may have to borrow my Mothers electric scooter though. :lol: So much to see!

I guess I'm not too odd for thinking about that then! LOL However, with Mom's, I can't get in as much trouble for customizing it. Flamed paint job, Lincoln emblems, cool hubcabs to look like mags, that sorta' thing. :lol: Most importantly, a switch to parallel the batteries from 2 12 Volts in series, to 24 Volts. That, I might get in trouble for...LOL.

The Club's former New Hampsure Chapter Coordinator, brought his own scooter on the BACK OF his Lincoln Mark VII LSC convertible of all things.
Currently, the picture escapes me but it's sooo doable!

The one I'd bring, will break down into smaller parts. I used to put it in the trunk of a Tempo, so there'd be no worries getting it into the Mark. It also has big batteries, & is designed a little faster than most portable units. Mom was lucky to get such a nice one. She often jokes about giving it a hot rod treatment, so customizing it at the show would actually be a fun project...Lincoln style of course. Although the idea of a 75 year old grandmother on a flamed out scooter, is kinda' neat. :lol: Lincoln emblems though...are a must! 8-)
