      I won't have a car at the show (I'll either be in the Mopar we have running - 2000 Durango. OR I'll drive the one convertible we have running, but it's not even American). Would have had to opportunity to drive a friend's hemi car (not sure which one), but I have to be there early as I'm working the registration table and I need to leave early as I have a 40-year high school reunion Saturday night.

      Looks like there will be a chance I'll be going after all. Hope to run into you.

      I managed to dodge my last two reunions... 40yr could be fun :)

      We left about 12:30 and I was able to get a nap in (was fighting a head cold). Car show was fun, reunion was a blast. I put a slide show video together which people really enjoyed. My other contribution was name tags with senior pictures (easy to do with Access). All in all a good day and I slept most of Sunday. Feeling better today, which is good because I'm scheduled to teach tomorrow (I'm retired, but substitute teaching to make ends meet).

      Sorry to hear you were under the weather... But at least you made a showing. I didn't.
      I had some things come up, last minute, that conflicted with the show... Maybe next year.

      About half dozen small E-body window, vinyl top, S/E moldings for $20

      Hey Steve! no I didn't. He would not come down from $150. lol. I didn't wanna pay that much. ;)

      I missed out on that floor shift steering column for a $100 bucks though! That thing was cherry!

      Maybe I'll find one at the fall fling!
