    I thank YOU guys for all your hard work to give us the opportunity to get back and see the pioneers who started it all in the 50's. They were my heros when I went to my first meet in Aug '59 and remain so today. They helped make a major change in the direction of my life that day and have continued to influence it since, all for the better and for that will always feel blessed.

    Looking forward to seeing you, John, and everyone else in less than a couple weeks!

    Hot Damn! Nostalgia at its best. Two race cars from the past that are super sweet, enjoyed the pix. Good luck on your new project, may it fly like the wind. ~Sololobo~

    Have found most of the parts except the lower scatter shield. Reinstalling the floorboards
    looked like a project and a half especially under 90* sun.

    Thought had crossed my mind but doesn't look like it is in the cards for this year. Think Bearing Burner the owner is tied up with some other life stuff day of TY Rods meet. Streached out time wise myself this year as well. Now that we have it able to roll onto a trailer hopefully this won't be the only time out for the car.

    You should chris....That area of MA is real nice too...I lived in the berkshires while in school ---- athol/orange is what I consider the gateway to the berkshires. Its a nice ride down to lancaster too. I will be at both events.

    BTW - This is one of my favorite posts of the year (2010).
