Bringing the 760 again. The car was featured in the VCOA magazine for this month so if I get it in time I can have the article laminated nicely. Want to take the T5 but I still need to paint a small portion of my bumper. Lost my spayer covers a while ago and may try just painting all of it myself. But there’s no time before Carlisle. Wanna take the wagon but I havent figured out why it wont start. My son is out in CA so he won’t be with me. But I have my bro-in-law coming. He restored a 1981 Lada. Will be parked at the Fiat (that model is based on the Fiat) section just across. He recently bought a mint 2009 auto S60 T5 and had the motor rebuilt. But he is bringing the Lada

Work continues to try and impede on my attendance. Now, may not return home until Thursday night (was Wed). Which gives me Friday to get the AC charged, car washed, polished, and waxed and get down to Carlisle. Somewhere in there I need to prep to be out of town for 1.5 weeks.

Getting your car to the show dirty is still more fun than not getting to the show! And as someone who attended shows without bringing a car for years, I never minded someone having a dirty car... sure beat having a plastic model of their car on their air cleaner (in case I forgot what it looked like while looking at their engine I suppose).

I do judging for the AACA and everyone's car does better in points when it rains, between hiding the problems and judges not wanting to stand in the rain or look under the car quite so long.

photo was blurry, here's a copy and paste of the post.

Carlisle!! So were doing a cruise and rendezvous with Lester W. III Brown RVA on Friday morning. Meeting at the Dunkin Donuts, yes...i said it , on rt 140 at 10-1015.... 3101 Baltimore Blvd, Finksburg, MD 21048 then cruising to the Gettysburg outlets to Meet up with RVA at
1863 Gettysburg Village Dr, Gettysburg, PA 17325

Dunkins to the outlets is about 35 40 mins. And then from there another 35 40 mins to carlisle. So we should be at the outlets by 11ish....and carlisle 12 ish....give or take traffic and unfortunately some rain showers.

You can respond here, pm, or just show up, if you want to join the caravan of moose.
See ya there!

Figured I’d get started. These glasses are courtesy of @skywolf a few years back as a raffle win at Carlisle.
