J.I.C. someone needs a Hotel room, someone update where and what is available please. Maybe we will attract new faces, most Falcons have a SBF that will fit a LBC:-)

Maybe I can get "Nigel" to perform on "the Dragon". Just need to know how it handles, Don't suppose Carl would agree to drive? :-)

No Smoke, but maybe Mescal. Potent Worm in the bottom once the Margarita is made. Carl has not chimed in, but maybe he will. Look fwd to seeing "The Gang". The Falcon guys intend to drive the Tail of the Dragon. Maybe we can give a few a ride :-) They all ready have the V8 power plant.

Reply from Killboy.com on our visit. The times seem reasonable? any thoughts differently? You guys Do Know How to USE their site to locate pics? Note time you see their photographers and go to their site in 3-4 days and ck that time frame. the Pics will be in the time frame under Cars section.

Hey Kelly,

Thanks for the advanced notice. We appreciate everyone’s patronage and we will be sure to have guys out there covering the Dragon, typically from about 10am to 6pm. If you think you will be near or outside those times, let me know in advance and we can adjust accordingly.

Hey now, Charles. I heard that!

Kelly has already received the same excellent chauffeuring service that Ted experienced. While I do not believe I actually gave anyone a stroke, they both likely wet their pants! :)

I understand that at least one of the Falcon enthusiasts has already driven the Dragon and discovered the "Tree of Shame".

...And no wonder: appears to be right-hand-drive - must've been on the wrong side of the road!

No "PEE" here, I was too pleased with car's performance to be frightened:-). If Carl has the balls to drive like that, I had the balls to ride beside him. EXHILARATING was the word. Those were the "good ole days" and The Tail of The Dragon was not overcrowded and No Law were present. Now, one must follow too many rules.:-) see you next Thursday!

Looking for last minute accommodations at the Talley Ho?

We still have room at the Big House/ Moor Manor/Moor Mansion if any one needs a cheap, clean bed. We'll even leave the light on for ya. ;)

It's been raining the whole time! But didn't stop the group. Everyone's leaving this morning - been fun, y'all - see you in May!

Here are a couple of pictures - maybe Rick or someone else will post more.
