You haven't lost your red stick have you. Just kidding..... What do you mean my fault. Only thing I have been doing the past 5 weeks is body work, primer, and painting along with buffing and polishing. Well also had to put the car back together with Jerry's new Nitrous motor. Hell th car is to pretty now for my old ugly engine.... Go figure......

Wayne call me if you need anything, will be glad to bring it and help you out... PM Me for my cell number...

John

Hey John...I'm still thrashing (what a surprise eh) and it's your fault! :o) You will understand when we meet up...depending on when I get done, I plan on getting there mid to late afternoon. Everyone be safe and see ya there.

With that storm system in florida the weather is wacky. The news people can't really predect the weather anyway. The last I saw it was 30% chance and isolated showers. It will probably be nice and sunny for Friday and Saturday...... If not we will have a big party at the guest hotel and I will buy the 1st round.....

We are still ago as far as I know. The van is loaded, gased up. All we have left is to load the car in the morning...

See everybody soon.

John, thank you very much, and YES, it is YOUR fault! I'm too old to be working this hard to try and keep up with J&J, (not that I could anyway) :o) Sure do appreciate your kindness...should be good to go. I think Warren and I have the same goal..just wanna make one run all the way down the track..YeeeHaaawww! See y'all there

Sorry Guys...The event was cancelled due to rain. We can control alot of things, but unfortunately, weather isn't one of them.

Thanks to all who DID show up. We'll be making plans for the next (replacement) event soon.

Yeah, it was a disappointment but got to put faces to some really great people; enjoyed meeting everyone!

We cut a half-hour off our time going back partly interstate to 300 thru Albany and finally ignored the GPS once we got to Marianna, FL. :)

Not the prefect weekend, but still it was a fun night in the parking lot. Wayne's and J&J's cars look awesome with their new paint jobs. Both cars have new engine setups that look very promising. The huge turbo charged 302 Ford Z is an engineering marvel. We had two people the drove down from the up North in RB powered 249sx and a Sonoma, what a shame they didn't get to run.
I made great time coming home. Hooked up with a black Porsche Carrera S about half way and we pretty much terrorized I-75 and I-85 :twisted: all the way to my exit, great fun. Note to self: Trying to keep up with a Porsche on the entrance to I-85 off I-285 can be a little scary. Thank goodness for throttle induced oversteer !!!!!

Heheh, You must have left not too long after me `cause that car caught my eye when I passed him going south and reminds me that I want a "Piss on Porsche" graphic. Hard to come by so I'll need to piece it together if I can find a decent small sized Porsche graphic to piss on. lol

Actually the guy was pretty cool. He pulled up next to me and gave the a thumbs up. When he went past I notice in plate had a Marine logo on it. He gave me another thumbs up sign after the exit incident, I think he was suprised I stayed with him...I was too.
Great meeting you and your son.

i had a blast talking to every one and nicole said it was nice to meet you guys as well. She liked that we didn't talk about cars ALL the time :D I hope to have the z next time and maybe nicole will bring either the zx or maybe my truck again. I think i am gonna try to make the branson meet, i really wanna run the truck and see what it can do. Too bad i didn't get to talk to everyone but it was nice meeting everyone

Hey all,

Disappointed because of the rain, but great to see all the "old" friends and meet a few new ones. I voted for a replacement event, so maybe we will see each other before the fall...Glad everyone made it safe and sound...except Dale...not so sure he is sound...:o)

Warren thanks for all of your efforts in trying to put on this dni event . I along with most of you was very dissapointed with the weather and was just hoping for a miracle that just didnt happen. With that said my son Spenser and I had an enjoyable weekend and hope that maybe we could reschedule this event for sometime later this year. Just wanted to say to Garrett, Scotty & Nicole that it's always good to see someone especially the younger folks have such a passion for the sport! For the rest of you older folks i really enjoyed your cars, conversation, and look forward to seeing you all again in the fall?
