    Hope they take 66 Kingman to Saligman there is good stuff out there. I grew up on that road and Took my kids along it every time I could. I hope Yancy can slow the Gasser down enough to really enjoy it. I hope he has pics to share when he gets back. Big Texan and all!

    Just wanted to touch base with everyone for the nightly update! They are currently in Springfield, MO, the SHOW ME STATE!!! Soooooooo, by this time tomorrow night they should be safely home. The Stude is still running fantastic! We are excited to have him back at the shop and we all can't wait to see pics! Thanks to everyone who has posted on this thread, all of your posts have been great!!!! We'll let you all know when he safely "back home in Indiana!"
     
  4. One word. Awesome. Must have been some urban myth that you can't drive gassers on the road. :D

    Tell El' Tomo to pat himself on the back. I'll try to stop by Saturday to visit with you guys. We got to show you our new toy too!

    Yancy called me this evening.

    He said he got pulled over in Oklahoma. The cop said "This can't be right, I clocked you doing 130 MPH" !

    Yancy said "Yep, Its right"

    The cop appreciated the honesty and wrote him up for 80 MPH !

    Damn lucky !

    Man!, What a trip! Will look forward to seeing you at the Road Rocket Rumble this year. Heck, for me a 2 hour drive to indy seems long. Guess I need to toughen up a little. That trip had to be a blast. Thanks for living our dream!

    Yancey, I have never been out west so tell me a couple of things. Where is the picture taken with the old steel truss bridge? In one picture you are walking towards it. Just curious if this was a signifigant land mark or jsut a stop during the trip. Also, is the huge hole the crator everyone talks about?

    Thanks for the pictures. Great Trip!
