You know I’ll be there. As it is all the time, it’s going to be a very interesting night.

Shucks.  Wish I could make it.  I hope it is video-taped.  Went there when I was 10-years-old, and had a memorable ride in the Shady Hollow fire truck!

There was a time in the mid ‘70s before vintage racing got going that Austin offered to store and display in his museum my 1962 SCCA BP race car, old # 69 that I got from Frank Dominianni.  Can furnish photos and add to the story if there might be interest.  Unfortunately I will not be able to make the meeting.  Got this notice via Howard Kroplick.  Thx
