Roaring Roasters

We were all talking at lunch today about the upcoming LARS next Friday and Saturday. Dave and I will be driving our roadsters to the show and the others will be in the Preferred Parking area. As you know, I have been solving some problems on Poppy for the past 6 months and hopefully have them all solved. I only have about 50 miles on the rebuild so I plant to make some more trips to ensure a trouble-free journey to Pomona.

I will be featuring roadsters for the next week plus a recap of the show on Monday the 18th. I am praying for a good turnout. We need to support these events or they will go away. I will be out for the weekend and hope to see you enjoying the show. Poppy will be parked near building 4 stop and say hello.
