    As did I. As least one appeared to have arrived in Baltimore missing a left rear hubcap...

    the dust is my fault. we were cutting out wooden bucks for forming the skeleton of a doped fabric speedster, and didn't have time to wash them before the texans got here...

    Sorry I did not get a chance to say hello. I saw you for a minute by Dan Webb's cars this weekend, and then you blended back into the crowd. Be safe headed home. The Rivs looked cool.

    The only problem is that we didn’t have a beer together. Safe Travels.
    Great seeing you again and meeting Norm.
  7. That '64 would look really really good in my garage. Nice!

    Who would have thought that road trip updates would be the problem? We should have sent Kirk! with them to document trip.

    I hope the roadtrip gods smile on your guess would be plugged fuel filter(s), leaky rubber hoses, water pump, a rotten tire .... that make it all fun.... my brother had to rent space in a friendly gas station when he drove his 65 rivvy across & all the crap in the fuel tank decided to free up off the bottom.....

    You will have no issues - just bug shit on the windshield.

    O.K. My guess it that....The cars will be fine, other than normal road-trip failure. You will make it all the way home, but drive into your own mailbox or a BIGASS tree/shrub in your own yard, and blame it all on a badass case of the giggles of joy...

  12. guys home YET? :confused:
  13. Ryan,
    Didn't have time to read all of the replies, but in and around NY/NJ you will want to stay out of New York City (unless you want that as a destination). The easiest way to do this and stay on the right roads are once you get into NY State, get on 287 and stay on it through NJ. This will take you far enough outside the New York City traffic.

    Also, be careful of the expansion joints on the Tappen Zee bridge, they are really bad.

    If you get hard up and need help in or around the area, please drop me a line. I'll PM you the number.
