    On the road this morning...in Leadville CO for the night. Saw a few sights. The weather is much cooler than last year this time. Caught a photo op with the train in Leadville returning for the day. IMG_20190910_110812669.jpeg IMG_20190910_152913401.jpeg IMG_20190910_160707605.jpeg IMG_20190910_155816722.jpeg

    Larry, since you will be so close, are you coming on to VA to get your engine and trans?:D
    I've been carefully tucking it in each night for you since you bought it. There was plenty of room for it in my shop once I got that big Buick off the floor and into the cabriolet!;):D

    Dang I’m excited!! Been watching the crews from Ohio and Texas treck towards Colorado online the last few days. I think the Ohio guys just left Pete and Jakes a bit ago, a bunch of Kansas City people left this morning. We leave in the morning.

    Going to be a fantastic weekend!

  25. Unfortunately I won't be attending this year. I have a last minute relay request if anyone is rolling past Lawrence, Kansas (exit 204 of I-70) in the morning? I have an SBC blower intake someone who is attending the hill climb wants to buy. @Tim what time are you rolling through?

    Mike, Troy and the rest of the guys work very hard to make this happen. Lots of stuff to be moved, set up, work all weekend then take it apart and hauled back home. So we can have a great time, Thank you very much.
