    See you there tomorrow. We just pulled into a hotel for the night about 200 miles outside of Indy.

    I saw a Chevy ('49-'52) broke down at Tom Culbertson's shop at lunch time - then a huge down pour hit while Tom was working on it a front on his shop - I assume the Chevy guy was headed to meet you guys - very nice car.
    I'll see you guys tomorrow at Edwards!!
     
  11. Here are a few phone pics from the hotel Thursday night:

    I talked too late and didn't get anymore that night. All the pics I took today were on my regular camera and will have to wait to upload them until I get back to my computer. Had a great time....what a wonderful show. :)
     
  12. This event is on my bucket list for when the '41 is done, so thanks for covering it for those of us who couldn't get there Dave. Your car looks terrific and is well on it's way to bitchin'!

  13. Thanks Dave, I appreciate the kind words. I'll get more pics up in a few days when I can get them off my camera.

    You won't have to Undorkify that one, looks good just the way it is.
     
  20. ...one of the main reasons I bought it. ;) Actually, I have a Fleetline I had intended to build a Grapevine-ish car out of....for the last 20 years...that's not making much progress. I saw this and quickly decided, sell the Fleeline, and drive this and be happy. One build instantly checked off the list. :)

    Thanks for posting the pics, I hated missing the show this year. I hope to be back next year.

    Love your new ride...

    We had a great time there. Our first time but definitely not the last. Long ride looking through that windshield though, lol. It was nice meeting you Dave, I wish we could have talked more, your Merc looks great and congrats on the Chevy. Nice car.

    Your pics look great Dr Dave! It was great seeing you and Michelle again and getting to watch your new car purchase as it came down. Here is a shot of you on your test drive.

    And of course - the obligatory full car portrait.

  25. It was totally great getting to meet you, too. I finally got to meet the legendary chopmerc!! :) I have been of the belief that there is no greater long trip than one looking through a short windshield...although yours is much shorter than mine. I guess I'll test that theory now that I have another driver with a full height windshield. I'm totally stoked about it and can't wait for it to get here.

  26. Thanks Dan....although I will confess those are my cell phone pics. We will be getting that camera you showed us that you use for your "quickie" pics though. Pretty excited about the new car...and what a treat to have a super portrait of it already! :)

    You're very welcome, Dave. The photo of you driving your new ride was taken with the TG-3 in totally auto snapshot mode.

    I'm gonna have to come down and go to lunch some Monday after you get it! Smokehouse or David's Burgers? :)

  29. How about two Mondays in a row and we can do both? :) Oh....and if you come, could you bring those Merc headliner bows....with another driver, Michelle has told me I really need to pull the headliner back out and make it right. ;)
