I just spent the day at the Roadster Show with friends looking at cars and talking. I did get interviewed by the local newspaper (The Oregonian) about my car in the show. They took pictures and spent 15 minutes writing notes to do a special interest story on the Austin gasser.
Guy was really not a car guy, so I hope he got things right! He couldn't seem to wrap his brain around a "mouse motor"!

I appreciate you thinking of me. My wife and I road down to Cloudlands State Park and had some really great BBQ at Thatchers BBQ in Trenton. Swung by the cruise on the way home just to say high to the gang.

Is the show in Canton weekly, monthly, or an annual event?

A National Detroit 900 is the most popular "hog", it's an 8" orbital sander and is THE "bondo" tool in my tool box, I have two of them actually, it is that valuable a tool.
