    Great pictures and kudos to the Rock River Valley Chapter for putting on a fine meet! They have set the bar high and the North Star Chapter will be striving to continue the excellence in 2008. With that in mind, you all are invited to attend the 2008 Upper Mississippi Valley Zone Meet next June 27th-28th in Studebaker, Minnesota! (yes, it's true) Here's the link to our web page:

    Pictures are up. The meet got off to a sluggish start but we had a great time. The weather was great too. We could have used a few more vendors.

    The trip to the old AMC proving grounds was great. That was my third visit but this was the first time they gave us a tour of their testing facility.

    "One after another they volunteered how in their families and in their
    communities they were expected to be responsible for their behavior, how
    honesty was assumed to be the rule, not the exception. They also talked
    matter-of-factly about the sense of duty to their country, a sentiment not
    much in fashion anymore."

    Yea have to admit beside the cooler weather in the morning for our first meet like this we sure had a good time and got to meet alot of nice people. One thing for sure was is that I was real nervous when it came time to have our car judged and was just praying it would start when I turned the key We did not have the chance to atend the awards dinner so not real sure how it turned out.

    Yep, It was a GREAT meet! After getting my generator "fixed" in Rockford, and dealing with some "family health" issues, I blasted out of town about 12 pm today. Landed it Noblesville about 5:30 9Rockford time) The ole' ragtop sure like 70 mph better then 55 or 60 BOSEG!
    Before I left on Saturday, Gordy Buetsch gave me a ride in his 500 cu in Caddy powered 53 Coupe! Even though it was only around the parking lot of the Clock Tower Inn, it was VERY impressive!
    It was good to see Bob40, (I'll let you know on the temp gauge) Claude, I managed to see Ron "rusty with oil" Johnson, (my high school shop teacher, that got me into Studes) of course Gordy Buetsch, whom I've also known for 30+ years (I painted my Golden Hawk in his garage) I also have a picture still on my tool box of Gordys 53 and my Golden Hawk from 1976!
    One of my buddies from Vocational school, Kevin Nousieanen (he bought a 63 Avanti from me in 1986) and were still friends! <G>
    Meeting Ron Powell, and Ernie Endsley (Ernies Car Care) It was a very enjoyable weekend!
    Thanks to the Rock River Chapter for a good time!
