Good reporting so far. I know its good because I'm hungry and jealous all at once. Seeing an Asp from Classic is a blast from the past. One of the guys around here who died a few years back was crazy about Asps and had 4 of them, brand new in his slot car cabinet. And that hybrid chassis under the Vette with old threaded axles and spinner nuts is neatly done.

Its going to be a good time when those little guys come out to play. I still don't know what it is that is so much fun about the little guys, but I know that running any of them puts me a in a good mood every time.

Harry,
Wow the food looks amazing! I think I can smell it form here.
Dr. Dan has crazy chassis building skills. That 57 is awesome. Every time I look at it I'm amazed.
Missing the fun, but I'll see you guys soon.
Tell the Mayor, Mr. Wizard and the rest of the crew I said hello. Have fun boys!
Hi General!!

Looks like great cars, great food, and great fun for all. Beats the 110 degree heat out here but these pictures did get me out to fire up my grille here.

Looks like a lot of fun. I wish I was there, but I'm not healed just yet. Still doing physical therapy. Hopefully I'll make it next year. Have fun everyone and have a safe trip home.

We thank all of YOU for making the journey. It's always fun to have a weekend stocked full of good friends.

Locoracer Tom and The General are kind enough to supervise my clean up efforts, but I'll be back with a few more photos later.

But again, big thanks to all of you!
