There are soooo many great memories! Here's a few more...
'07 - Texarkana to Atlanta - leaving Birmingham following the Hershey's with David hammer down and Lori hanging out the T-Top filming "Little Red TA" with her video camera...then David getting pulled over 'cause Lori didn't have her seat belt on.
Aahhh - Talladega, the museum, and photo with the track behind us!!
'08 - Columbus to Atlanta (Year One) - Running with Clint, Sarge, and RockSho really quickly down the four lane black top from OH to WV to the State House! Wow! what a wild time! And coming through the NC/GA mountains with almost every color of TA made in '78 except black!! - there's a rare moment for a BR !!
'09 - Branson to Atlanta (YO) - running out with PonchoFreek 2 weeks prior, storing the cars, flying home, flying back out, picking up cars on that Sunday night, and beginning the run on Monday am with the group into Harrison for the arrival of THE RIG !!! Running Ole' Route # 7 through the Ozarks into Hot Springs for the convention center event! Wow! How can we forget the HotSprings CC!
Then, into Graceland, and Nashville...with Tyler yelling on the radio "Hey Ron...where'd ya get that seat cover?" Then, dragon's tail!
'10 - Atlanta to Beach Run - the whole dang thing seemed perfect but the part that stands out was the Sherriff Dept Sargeant that was not going to allow us on the Beach for the photo shoot despite mine and Ric's best persuasion UNTIL she walked outside with us and saw Ric's '77 SE. She melted like chocolate in the Daytona sun!! Remember that Ric? And Rando telling 'bout getting pulled over after he exited for a 10-100 just north of Big Daddy Don Garlitt's. Runners you should get Rando to tell you about that stop..."if I say we are going to 1, we ain't going to 1, were going to 3".
'11 - Lincoln to Atlanta (YO) - priceless times with JesupTA and then running to Lincoln with the KC gang the next morning from Liberty MO. All the way back to Snowman's "KEEP" (Wayne & Tanya's) for his antique truck collection and then Mt Vernon!
The whole dang town turned out!! Then Bowling Green, and, and, and, and...
dang it's fun!!
