    Thanks everyone who came out yesterday for our run! We were honored to have so many cars for our first run! We had 30-40 cars and a couple of bikes. Everything went well aside from some mechanical issues. I have pics at home. If anybody has pics feel free to post em. Once again thanks everyone who came out. We had a blast and we look forward to the rest of the summer!

    Right! Thanks to you guys who made it out. I don't think we could have picked better weather! Only one speeding ticket for 40 cars isn't bad!

    If I may add some more "Thanks" to this... Thanks to Bob Fulmer from "The Works" body shop in Fridley MN. He drove the tool/recovery vehicle and I know it had to be used more than once.

    Also thanks to Tim at Minnesota Hot Rod Hardware for letting us stop by and view his new shop.

    You guys did a nice job putting this thing together.

    Unfortunately we weren't able to finish the cruise as one the above mentioned 'mechanical issues' occured on one of our cars. I had told everyone previously that if anyone had trouble they wouldn't be abandoned. When Pat's flathead began to develop an intermittent "death rattle" as we approached Redwing he knew it was time to slow down and pull over. So most of the club stopped and made the decision rather than continue and potentially be even further away when it finally grenaded that we'd be better off finding a more leisurely route and heading back towards the city.

    We ended up stopping into Hastings and having some lunch before heading back.

    Wish we could have continued on and finished the cruise but we weren't going to leave a 'soldier' behind.

    Pictures look great. Would like to see some more if anyone else has some.

    As usual it was nice to meet some new people and bs with others I hadn't seen in a while.

    Who received the ticket? I bounced all over the pack through the day and don't remember anyone being pulled over.

    Great weather, beautiful cars, good food and beer. One quart of oil.

    Lots of fun.

    Thanks to all who participated.

    The guy in the 57 Ford at the end of this picture got a ticket from that bear in the woods around Kenyon! He followed Erik Johnson on the wrong road and when he turned around to catch up to everyone it was too late... :eek:

    So many cool cars! Absolutely perfect weather. Very scenic and well-planned route. Great company. What a way to start the long-awaited season! I was gonna be stoked if we had eight cars show up, could not have anticipated the turnout we had. Nice to know that so many others have been looking forward to this run for as long as I have.
    Cheers to the Black Stallion Grille, too. We kinda hit 'em pretty quick on a quiet Sunday afternoon, and they handled us with style.
    Big thanks to Mac(?) in the very cool black model A pickup; I owe you a pack of 1157's!

    The Mystery Cruise was awesome! Perfect weather and great turn out!

    Sorry to hear about the guy who followed me the wrong way that got a speeding ticket! We got stuck behind a tree truck and by the time we came to the fork in the road I flipped a coin and took the wrong way, just my luck!

    Also thanks to Bob Fulmer for the rolling pit crew service!

    Here are a few photos:[​IMG]

    For the record - the cop (deputy) was super cool. No hassle - he knew I was trying to catch up and knocked the speed down to 65. I'm going to take a class in Redwing to keep it off my record.

    Belated thanks LB's - we had a great time.

    For the record: your 57 is currently the most badass car in the twin cities. My opinion. -marx
