Doesn't this just SUCK ??!! We got a coating of snow last evening too. The snow is still 4 ft high along the sides of my driveway from plowing. I moved my '38 out of the storage side of the shop into the heated side so it's available when I get time. Trying to get the '67 GTO together to sell this summer.

If Spring ever does get here, I'm really looking forward to No St Paul, the Pizza Shop, downtown Stillwater, etc.......come on weather .......

I work just up the line in Schafer from you.

It snowed all the way home Fri night. 694/494 was down to 45 mph at the Wacouta bridge.

I thought I might be able to get the Willys out this week end but it was just too soggy to chance getting stuck in the mud.

Now it is raining again and more predicted.

Maybe next week end

Hey let me know about the Stillwater meets. I like to drive over for them.

Next weekend isn't looking any better at this point. Just watched the news and they're predicting measurable snow Tuesday into Wed with near constant rain all week.......

Downtown Stillwater shows are Wednesday evening starting at 5:00. I haven't seen a start date yet but they closely follow No St Paul, which starts June 7th. And the old timers get there 3 hours early for the shady spots... It's on the river front park, north of the lift bridge down to P D Pappy's.

I was able to go to a little show at the local High School Saturday which had about 100 cars. I guess it is a good thing I forgot my camera. I would hate for you guys to think I was rubbing your nose in it.

It is supposed to be 78 today. The bike may leave the driveway for the first time today and hope to get to the Sonic tonight.....with camera.

You know its too bad we don't have a patch from Hotrodders. com to wear on our jackets! We could be standing right next to each other and not know it!!! I go to St. Paul and other shows around the country and Canada, And many drag strips! But I would never Know any of you guys as fellow members!!!!

We could even have gold, silver and brown patches! Gold for people with more posts then others , silver for less posts and brown for the least! Starting with at least 100 posts to get a brown LOL!

I wonder if anyone ever suggested that

Now fellas. You know I would never do that. I am only trying to help you reallize how much fun you are going to have in a few weeks.

Barb and I rode the Harley up to the little grill at the old train depot in Dayton Tn for lunch. I then went to the Sonic tonight. It is pretty much the same guys with the same cars but it is really great to see everyone out and about.

It sure feels good to see spring getting here. I am truly thankful for the warmer weather we are blessed with in the south. For those of you who don't know it, I was born in Indiana.......Ain't goin back.

No kidding. I thought those tail lights were some abomination on a one-off custom job. Well, I guess Edels were an abomination. Could be why they failed....

I realy liked the 60 as pictured,funny thing is they were reported to be made from 58 -60 on some sites ,a frend in Calhoun ga has a 57 edsel it looks like the cheaper version 57 ford I think it was called a ford custom ,the Edsel taillights were like a ford exept they had a large V laying on its side in the taillight, also daw a picture advertised as a 61 mbut never saw a real car.

I called about Winfords car it is Not an Edsel it is a 57 Ford Custom with Edsel tail lights mounted in iy,
