You boys have a great time this weekend. Hope the weather holds for you. (Out here on
the Best Coast, the monsoons have set in, but we can't complain after a great Indian Summer.)
Be sure to post up some pics!

VIC: Many thanks for your "creative" pinups these past few months. They were a hoot!

Sorry to hear this Marcus, we missed having you join us on the tour. Will put the tags in the mail in the next couple of days. Maybe we could meet up at the Spring Ford Barn Florida meet. Hope all goes well for Margretha's eye surgery.

We're back home as of 3 pm central today. The crowd was shoulder-to-shoulder. We wanted to leave the show early afternoon on Saturday and could not get out. Every lane was blocked. Luckily, my son drove the wife up in her car so we left the '40 and came back about dark and got it. The infrastructure in the area just can't handle the crowds. As we drove towards GA 400 the traffic was backed up for miles. I'll bet the local non-car folks hate to see this come every year. The good part is there were more cars than you could look at and the weather was perfect.

I'm was sorry to hear Ms Margretha needs more surgery. We missed them and pray for God's guidance for the surgeon and a quick recovery.

The Friday cruise was excellent. Thanks to Vic for promoting it all year ( sorry Lawson) and to Gene and Sarah for the planning. We had a great time and enjoyed meeting people and putting faces with the avatars. There were even some White Knuckles on the curves in the mountains.

Made it Sat for a few hours for my first time. Me thinks the festival plus the car show are too much of a good thing for the size of the town. Met a few folks but would be nice if Barn members would put their ID on the windshields entry.
Definitely a unique show that should be on everyone todo list

Bill, Just follow the oil trail you left going south and you will be fine. I'll probably smell the smoke when you go by! LOL. I'm glad you guys have had a fun trip. Stay safe.
