I second that motion Rob. At least we could have a bit of vicarious participation.:-)

OK - here are a couple of shots as we lined up for the first drive to Sevierville and the Tennessee Aviation Museum. Had one breakdown - Ken Nicks in his lovely '51 Jag Saloon with rear suspension issues. I'm sure more info will follow, but bottom line is that he'll be back on the road this afternoon.

Will post more pics as I get them, and I imagine others will contribute.

The bushings in the links for the rear shocks deteriorated to the point where the link slipped from its mount and fouled on the suspension hanger; plus the shackles were upside down (may have happened when the suspension bottomed out because of the problem with the links). No bushings available, so Jim Watson took the links ("dog bones") to his garage and welded washers on them to hold them in place. (Hope I have this right; kinda hard to describe.) Anyway, Ken's back on the road and we'll be off to dinner in a couple hours.

Ok, I thought I'd like the pics... But they just reinforce how much fun we're missing! Wish I were in the parking lot about now. Tell everyone I said hi.

Kelly, I should have shipped a couple of Moosehead for a toast. Did Curtis make it from WA?

Ed and Denise thought it might be nice to have a photo to remember the meet by.

Apparently Rick volunteered to take it for them. Rick's photo probably looked something like this re-creation.

I saw a photo opp and reached for my camera, and then Carl grabbed his phone and went in for the kill...

Evidently, Carl didn't realize he was giving me an even better photo opp...

A good chuckle was shared by all...
