Sunny and 47 in west central Illinois. Have cared for the Hertz since 1987 and gave 1st ride to my brother and
sister-in-law this Christmas morning. All is well!

Listening to sound of an American V8 rumblingdown the road is a great way to end a year

The weather looks really sucky but we can all still meet and BS about how the years been ( Phil can tell us tales about the GT350 Tour, I can talk about MCACN, Cory about the show in Ridgley.) Anyone else is welcome to show up

Took the car out today as tomorrow looks increasingly rotten. I still plan on meeting with enthusiasm and passion, just probably without the car. But I did get mud on the tires, so it made me think I drove it more. We have had a record amount of rain this year, rumor says its double what Seattle got.
Looking forward to seeing folks tomorrow, bring pictures, tell stories, that's the most important part. Shelby's, Mustangs, Cougars, any story involving 2018

My traditional Dec 31 ride for the last 35+ years has been to leave downtown LA, blast up the Pasadena Freeway, Exit at Orange Grove and go north past the Valley Hunt Club and Wriggly Mansion, turn right on Colorado and finally get on the 210 Freeway a few miles down the road. This has always provided the most amusing trip of the year seeing all the wackos camped out on the curb waiting for the parade to go by.

Thanks to Phil, Deb, Cory, Lauren, my wife and me for a good afternoon
Remember into all life a little rain may fall, by with good people come good times, Happy 2019 may it be a little drier than 2018

Some where some one is driving their collector car for the last time but they don't know it . Drive your car every time like it could be the last memory of it .

It was a great time and really nice meeting Phil and Deb.  Just a little clarification my wife is Laura as I am sure we will all be getting together in the future.

After 4 days of sitting in the driveway, it’s finally dried up enough to get the car across the yard to its home in the trailer. The rain has been relentless this year and has caused a lot of shows and cruises to cancel. So the car is stored away with mud all over the tires and it needs a serious cleaning both inside and out. Probably won’t take it out again until late March. Did take it out for a short 5 miles run to put some gas in it on Jan 1st 2019
Hopefully 2019 will be better year for driving
Happy New Year
