The unfortunate aspect of planning, is that someone can't make it. I'm in England , hopefully, but will miss JCCS and Shasta. Sucks, but schedule whatever and those that can, hopefully will. What is so nice to experience is a nascent group of cool people who enjoy our cars and each other.

Things to ponder, apart from driving as a focus, Petersen, Mullin, Nethercutt, a 'tech/wrenching' day, sushi dinner where all families can come, BBQ , bring your spare bits etc. And just be present to supporting each other.

It doesn't have to be a 'club', just people who have a common love for our wheels and enjoy each others company.

And I enjoy all of you, and would not want this to go away.

When I get back from England, late Oct, I would love to do a run to one of the local museums and then BBQ at my house.

Just lets keep it going. There is so much fun in our future.

Thanks! Yup. I decided that this tired engine needs a renewal in life for another 50 years of service. I found this place that heavily advertise their workmanship up in Sun Valley, CA so I'm going to give them a try...funny as the price had jumped from $1800 to $2700 in the past five years. Wished I pulled my engine out five years back :-|
