Can't wait. Home from Korea today, one week in the office, then hit the road. Looking forward to seeing everyone. Haven't had a chance to do pre-trip checks but will inspect this weekend. Car's been running great so don't expect any issues. Someone knock wood for me!

Janet and I have had a change of plans. We're driving part of the Blue Ridge Pkwy before the meet and would have to double-back to be in Wytheville on the 6th. As we don't have a lot of time (or funds!) to spare, we won't be meeting up with y'all until Lewisburg.

See you there!

Mickey

Calvin - I used to live near Moss's Petersburg VA location... in fact, the British car shop that my dad used to take his B to was in the same industrial area where they are. If you're into Civil War era stuff, there's a great park near there (or at least there was 30 years ago when I lived there) -- would make for some excelent car photo backgrounds.

Thanks to the participants who joined us at Wytheville Va. Warm-Up. The Wytheville Vistor Center, La Quinta Inn. and other entities made us feel welcome. Wish we had someone in the area the who could organize a British V8 meet in Wytheville. The mountains are close enough to have spirited drives and they have adequate facilities to support other activities.

Kelly - Wytheville was great. Did anyone get a copy of the article the local paper said they were going to do?
