Wow! What a road! How many cars are there? We are planning to be in Memphis by 9:30-10:00 on Saturday. This will e the first real road trip for the pinto, never been further than about 25 miles away, should be fun.

Quick stop at the parts house this morning to pick up wiper blades...

Met Buford and his wife in the trail of years state park. He road with us for a good while with his fantastic pinto...

Brent (RedDog) and crew showed up at the entrance to the drag racing.. He has a must see pinto. Great aftermarket air setup- cool seats and the headliner was reall neat... Did I mention the v8 that was "hiding" under his hood?  Wish I had taken pictures... Several others did.. Watch for them...  Lost track of Brent when we pulled out of the drag racing venue... It was all hurried and we had to move fast. Sorry if I missed you at the end Brent...

Tommy and Sherri showed up at the second hotel for the rest of the trip. Tommy was there at the beginning of the meets and stampedes... Tommy (dream beam) and Sherri are quality folks..

Now... Tommy has something to share with all of us... His new air conditioning system... It actually works great! It's called R.P.C.D...
