I just left Genes shop worked all day finishing up the few things that I had left to do. I started to hang around but gene had been swamped with visitors all day and was worn out. I offered to stay and help him and Melvin finish up so he could fire the car tonight because it's real close and nobody wants to hear the first heart beat in 40 years more than I do. But I think that Gene and Melvin want to do that on there own just like in the old days and I think we all should respect that just my thinking but I'm think I on target. I talked to Gene a little about tuning the old hilborn and offered my help but it didn't take long to under stand that he has forgot more about tuning a race car that I will ever know. They may do it tonight or tomorrow I don't know but I'm sure he will let us know. There may not be a video of the fire up unless Ruth or Melvin do it so any body that wants to here the Moonlighter run you will have to be at Greer Saturday. Remember this is just my thinking some of ya'll may know Gene Ruth and Melvin better than I do.
