    Cool stuff! Haven't been to 'Dova in years, heard it's really nice now. I'll have to make it a point to get out there this year. maybe take the Stude up for a "Test and Tune" day and see if I can break into the "teens" LOL..

    WOW! I can remember that one year in the late 1950s me and some friends took a houseboat up the Mississippi from Davenport and tied up to some nice folks dock and then walked across the highway to the strip. I've seen some late pictures of Cordova today and of course, it's not even similar to what it was then. I left the area for California in 1961 and never returned to live there. GREAT MEMORIES though!!!
