Hello all,

I was there, I met Rick (MGRick) at about 1140 and figured I'd look around
for a bit and come back at Noon to meet up with everyone. Needless to say, I
got caught up looking over the Cobra display...I have to admit...made me
drool a little :o). Think about it...a 427 or 460 in a 2300 Lb (US pound not
the british pound). Now that's zip! by the time I got back to the meeting
place, everyone was gone. :o( I did have a great time!...I found most of the
emissions stuff for the engine including an unseized air pump for $10! and
the air rail for another 10!

Did anyone have their cars on the field?
