Thanks Tim for a great GTG. Not too hot there in the woods of CT, and Parker and I had a quick ride home on 91 and 90. Chased a Corvette for most of the ride on the Pike who must have thought the route number was the speed limit. Still showing 49 on the MFI.

Very nice time. Lots of people - way more than last year and people from VA, OH, down the Cape, etc so it looks like we have a annual thing going here.

Good to see lots of new and old faces. Was happy to bring ole Krusty and show the work lots of people on this board have done on the car. Just upgraded the side panels in the rear hatch area from moldy crap to pretty nice condition panels.

The only downside on the way out was that Main Street was closed due to a parade???!!! Had to take back roads out through cornfields...now I feel like watching Twister tonight!

Tim, thanks again - and I think you're good for food for a few days! :D

I hope I can make it next year. I'm quickly becoming an enthusiast, within a few weeks of purchase.

There is movement on the farm again... Breakfast time, a little bit of cleaning up, then time to hit the road.

Looks like the power is still out at home (day 2) - might be going to my parents and enjoying their A/C for the night.

Pics from this weekend...

Had a great time Tim, awesome spot! I would come down and give you a hand getting that 1926 International started anytime! Same goes for land clearing for the "rally course" we discussed, LOL!

well sorry to say this but duty calls......All the principals at work are out of town so my presence is requested.......Also I am having trouble with the A/C so it would have been an uncomfortable trip.....So sadly I must Bow out.....
You WIMP! I VOLUNTARILY went without air conditioning to maximize precious fuel economy! :)

High mileage B4 owners chatting happily away, hers has 426K and mine a lowly 404K, but I'm catching her.

It was a great time, thanks for hosting it Tim. Wish I could have stayed longer, maybe next year I'll bring a tent since I got home at midnight. Samuel passed me on I-84 at about 85 mph and I saw no burning A3 hulks on the side of the road, so I guess the boost hose repair held up OK.

Great to be able to put a face to a name for many of you. It was truly a great time and just what GTG's are all about.

Got back home at midnight to find that most of my city is out of power, but I've got it. :D

Had a great time, good to see everyone, and thanks for hosting, Tim. :)
