    Just have to bolt the roll bar in and put the slicks on. Really looking forward to getting away for a few days.

    Wish I could be in Salina but family stuff will keep me home. Have fun and we'll see you in August.
     
  8. Can't wait. The silent auction is coming along really well. There's a few more details to work out, but it looks like something VERY cool is going up on the block. Ryan said this about it..."I think it is incredible... Hell yes." You'll know soon enough.;)

    I think Flamedabone was talking about a car...not someone of the female persuasion...

    Tell them there is a chapel there in Joplin. I was joking with my wife(GF at the time) that we should just get married while we were there 3yrs ago. She pulled in taking me serious. I got all dizzy and sweaty and backed out. Finally bit the bullet 2 yrs later though!!

    Your little car gets me thinking too....Particularly with the wheelstand shot. I remember that little car was waaaay faster than it looked, but I can't remember just how fast she was. So.....how fast is she?

    Maybe we can line em up this year? Remember, you have to drive her there or it doesn't count..

    See ya, -Abone.
     
  25. WE'LL BE THERE! richcraft mike, unruly julie, THE LUMP.....JUST LIKE 1960!
