    Cool, I have family in Bartlesville. I met hotroddave once when I was up there.

    Being that last year was the first time for this event, it was a good turnout. This years promises to be even better.

    Haha, cool. My little nephew is bitten by the bug. He remembers your car and when I was up to visit last month he was asking how I was coming along with mine. He described what sounded like an Edsel he saw around town and some other custom. I want to try and make it to the Straycats500 or whatever its called and take him to it.

    I won't have a car with me, but I'll have a green minibike

    Well, the unless happened, my uncle passed away Friday morning and my mother in law passed away this morning. I will be headed to Ohio to join my wife tomorrow or the next day and wont be able to attend the "Thaw" Saturday.
    I need someone that can take over my duties classifying cars for the race. If there is anyone out there that can attend and sacrifice a few hours of their time looking a some cool cars and telling the driver what class they are going to run please contact me.

    Thanks Doc. I am doing ok but my wife is taking it pretty hard, although she seems to be doing better now that she is in Ohio and has something to do other than wait.
    Daniel (TheShocker) says he will be happy to take over my responsibilities classifying the cars. It would be great if anyone would like to help him out. Classifying cars should be a great time, after all, it is several hours of looking at cool cars up close and talking to their owners.
    If anyone is interested in helping please pm me.
    Thank
    Wesley

    Remember that I am not above taking bribes to get into the class that you want and I dont expect that Daniel would be any different.
