Well, we all made it. Was a load of fun and will definitely be doing it again. Cool routes, people (Except the vette retards), scenery, and friends. The Star Chief made it a total of about 3,500 miles after I went to Back To The 50s this last weekend too. No problems at all other than the speedo cable breaking about 900 miles into the trip. LOL!

Back to work now, just doesnt' seem right. Should be driving my car somewhere.

The cars in our group.

Some of the scenery in Tennesee.

Markings of me being there.

My car next to LAke Eire in Michigan at our campsite.

A cool night shot of my car.


Was in 13 different states within 10 days. Was COOL!

Ya, I met him last year when they passed through Rochester, MN. Drove the hour to go meet him and his buds. This year he came with his girlfriend. After the tour they stayed at our place for the rest of the week. We went to the Mall of America, fishing, and Back to the 50s. Was cool.
