    Count me in. Too many fond memories of the Foundry tour you organized to not go.

    Thanks, bob

      I would be interested, depending on when the tour will be held. Tuesday for example is really full for a lot of folks.

            Please throw out some recomendations for days and times and I'll run them by the owner of the bldg. I would imagine the tours would take at least an hour. Thanks, Tim

                Add me to the list. Question: Is the storage of cars all the building is being used for? Toured this building when they were assembling the '59 Lark. lots of activity e.g. fabrication of interior cloth pieces comes to mind.

                    Bob Palma, Do you have any knowledge you would like to share for the tour. It could possibly also cover bldgs. 112 and 113. If you come up for the spring meet maybe we could do a dry run.

                      Hi, Tim: Check out the May and July 1988 Turning Wheels. One of them (I forget which) details my and Don Galeziewski's adventures in Bldg. 84, with many photos.

                      Beyond that, which was contemporary, I don't have anything further to add. (In fact, if I went back and re-read those, I'd probably recall some older material myself!) <GGG>

                      'Will be up for the May swap, though. BP
                      We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

                      Ayn Rand:
                      "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

                      G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

He is doing this as a favor to Stude fans and to raise a little money for the construction of an regional athletic facility for handicapped kids called Miracle Park. Hopefully we'll impress him enough that we will be able to do this again in the future. We'll go back and talk to the owner again after we get more imput and we definitely don't want to disrupt the Int. Meet.
                                I'd be interested too. This building was strictly out of bounds when Mark and I attempted to take a self-tour on the Friday morning of the International Meet in 2007. The owner was very uncooperative for going inside, but we were allowed to take some exterior photos.
