Hey Sandy and Pete,

Terry Hall here (Danny Truitt's cousin, from NH).  I can't make the Beaver Springs show, but will be in Ocean City in May for the cruise.  Arriving Wednesday and staying until Sunday.  Hope to catch up with you there!

Hey Terry, we'll be in OC probably only on Saturday. We're not staying the wed thru Sunday like we use too. Looks like I'm not working for the photo company that's always at the convention center, so without that, we will just go one day.

Sorry to hear that Sandy.  It's by far my favorite show.  Nice to get back to Maryland every now and then.  We will look for you!

Chris,
Myself and John (70cj428) will be at Beaver Springs for the FE Reunion.  Should be a really cool event and something that everyone on this forum should support, if they can.

Have you raced your car since you got the new motor back from 422?  How did it run?

See ya there,

crawled all over n under the Mach today giving it a good preflight insp. before a the long drive up to Beaver Springs. Always good to find the Trans cooler lines chaffing against the C6 Bellhousing before its an issue!! Went to The Airport &put 10 gals of 100ll in for a really resonable 5.80 a Gal. New brake Master Cylinder on, fresh front brake pads. I think it,s ready ! Tim n I will be convoying up Fri. Staying with friends in McVeytown Instead of the Hampton.       Cmon Friday!!!

Well, during my shake down run to night I noticed the smell of anti freeze.  I lifted the hood and anti freeze is sprayed all over the engine compartment. Turns out I'm leaking Antifreeze from my  Heater Hose fitting on the intake  >:( >:( >:(. I just took it a part to find out that the fitting is rotted out and will have to be replaced.  I just ordered a new one. This is going to be cutting it close.

I didn't make it. I was invited to meet up with John, the guy with the grabber blue 69 "Going Thing" that's freshly restored. He was with the owner of the XL100

From the look of the pictures, it looks like a good showing!
If I'm here, it means I am mad at all my other cars.

Thanks for the pictures.  The track and cars look great.  The grass is green the sky is blue and the car didn't blow up.  Sounds like a pretty good time to me.    Brian
