    My ship is down in Vellajo in drydock at Mare island and I need to know what car shows are coming up. We will be here until at least the end of October. Going nuts in this ship yard.

    Lotsa history there...I'd walk around and get a taste of WWll California. Lots to see, maybe you'll find a drop tank or two.
    Look between the old warehouse/office buildings.
    Just think...you could have been 'swamped' in Chicago...or some other dismal site.

    On Friday afternoons a bunch of rodders go to DICKS CAMPER SALES in American Canyon for a great lunch put on by Dick, Barbara, and Rick. Close to Mare Island and on the Hiway.

    there's a guy on the rigging crew working on your ship named Kevin. Think he's a lead man. Ask around for him, he memorizes all the local car shows or else ask him can you look thru his cruising news magazine.
     
  19. October 11th is the show at the legendary
    Gene Winfield
    in Mojave.
