Are there any plans for RM once the repairs are completed?

October 16-19 is the Buick GS Nationals in Bowling Green, KY. We should try to make it there if we can.

RM would be a big hit at the Conch Republic independence day parade on Duval St in Key west



Key West British Car Club held it's annual club meeting on April
22 at the Admiral's house. After reports on membership and finances
officers were elected for the next year. Those elected were:
Admiral -- Fred Skomp
Vice Admiral -- Brian Hoffman
Chancellor of the Exchequer -- Cindy Skomp
Scribe -- Tommie Camblin
The club is pleased to have Brian on the team as he has a house in
the Keys and will be able to closely coordinate the club activities
with the Admiral. Information on future events will be distributed
when appropriate.

That'd be fine, but first we need to work on it some. It needs spacers under the rear subframe bushings, the new steering column needs installed, the gages need sorted out, and I think there's a list if small items that need to be taken car of such as the driver's door lock and the window adjustments. Some of you guys need to get together on when would be a good time to do that stuff.

This year's Hot Rod Power Tour starts in Charlotte, goes to Knoxville, then Charleston WV, Norwalk, Ohio, Crown Point, Indiana, Bettendorf, Iowa and ends up at the Wisconsin Dells. That looks to me like British V8 country!

I'm only 90 miles from CLT, be thrilled to participate in the tour

Also re getting RM to CO I might be able to drive it west and fly home. Anyone out there want to host RM.

If I am able to attend Bill Young's service, would it be a good time to drive RM out to KS?

Depends on when the service is, and how long it take to tune the timing map. I expect all afternoon today to be needed for sorting out the wiring.

I will save the date in May to shuttle RM from KY to MO if you guys want me to .
I plan to fly out to the event if someone else wants to drive RM.
As someone else said, Carl I think, it's only fitting that RM should be present for the memorial service.
Jus tlet me know if I should plan to drive or fly.

Not sure if I said it out loud, but I sure was thinking it would be an awesome tribute & sendoff.

Are there any members/contributors who might like to host RM in GA or FL before mid May when the car needs to be in MO?

Im thinking about attending the Key West event April 22, 2014 and could drive RM one way. This is just a suggestion not intended to offend anyone.
