Jon, I'm building a motor right now. This Speedweek was about sorting the car out, which went well. Now it's time to turn up the wick. It went straight as a string with very little steering input. The shifter went out of adjustment and we did a little modification on it. I had to change a head gasket (which I knew about beforehand). Unfortunately, I forgot to bring a replacement.  rolleyes Before I knew it a set was offered to me from the Pierce Boys out of Indiana. Darn guys wouldn't accept anything for them. Thanx guys.  cheers McCain and Houtz came through too. All in all it was a great week. Everyone at the White Goose Bar was super as usual. It was good seeing you, Doug. Wayno

I'm guessing that as long as it's not over the salt that might be a good thing.

Had breakfast with our tank driving friend at Mom's Cafe in Salinas, an omelet the size of home plate.  And a tour of the Rodge Mahal.  Thanks for your time, Wayne, you are one creative guy.

Hope for a dragon fly.

That would make the event legitimate.
