Scott - great pictures. Makes me regret not making it there - 2 times in a row. Maybe next year?

Keep it up. Those are some good shots and some real nice cars there so far.

Thx

I take it the tan EZ lift car is pushed everywhere, since I notice the oil cooler is missing and the seals or caps or something are in the holes for it...

Well its not an EZ lift car the EZ lift guy didn't have anywhere to put his EZ UP.... So it ended up over the IECC prez's car. We are going to fire up the car for the first time today.

OH and a great story...One of our members (Austin) broke a clutch cable a block from the toss. Another member (Eddie Corson) towed him in. The EZ lift guy offered to let Austin use the EZ lift to repair his car car. So after he purchased a clutch cable from Larry's we pushed his black (VERY HOT) car (we needed oven mits but just grinned and beared it) to the EZ lift and he got it fixed. The Corvair people are the greatest!

I also met Bob Helt. What an honor!

You should all be glad I cancelled and am not there coughing and spewing flu germs all over cars and owners.

Great pictures so far, Saturday should be even better.

Please post more pictures, I'll look at them when the Codeine wears off - now I'll float away for a while!

Best way to avoid the flu is a FLU SHOT! I haven't had the flu since the first shots came out.

Now if you have H1N1 (Swine flu), they didn't get that one into this year's flu shots in time...thus the extra shot we can't get our hands on.

H1N1 is a "cousin" of the flu of 1918 that killed millions around the globe. Nasty one.

Had regular flu shot two weeks ago, lot of good it did. Can't get H1N1 yet, I'm not in a high enough risk category. Dr. yesterday said I have yet another different strain of flu.

PUt fresh fuel in the Vair today, took it around the block then came home and took some more Codeine laced cough syrup.

Enjoy the toss, wish I was there.
