    I hate that Ric, I will not be able to make it either with the new job and limited vacation days. I will however get to see all you guys at Yearone for the show since I live so close by. See you guys when you get here. Tyler you welcome to stay at the house again if you need to.

    thanks Tim I really appreciate the room offer.

    Lisa and I are not sure of our plans either. We might drvie up and meet everybody at Chattanooga, as that will be a great event. Everything really depends on if the rig makes the whole run or just a partial run. We are still short on fuel money for the diesel.
    Many runners have already helped and believe me when I say everything is appreciated. The trailer was built on alot of small donations that added up. The same is true on fuel money. Thanks everybody.

    I will do another movie tour on Saturday the 16th, so hopefully I'll see alot of new and old friends there. I wil post details of that soon.

     

    God Bless, Tyler

    Well bandit runners.... I was lucky enough to meet the man himself... Burt Reynolds.... There was an event here in Tampa Florida with turner classic movie channel.... and with the help of the Debbie (who can make anything happen!) they wanted my car for Burt to do a photo shoot with the turner big wigs....
    Well I get there..... and waited for hours.... blocks away form the event... until they called and said Burt was ready.... I got to pull in to the blocked off street and Burt came out to the car.... I recognized the the guy who brought Burt trans am to the Bandit Bash in Jupiter last year... standing off to the side.....so I asked if I could just get one picture with him.... in the video you can hear them ask him.... what's funny is they didn't introduce me as Ric or the guy that brought the car up... they said Burt...can you take a picture with the Bandit Run Guy..... well he did... and I got to talk to him for a few... and it was all about the Bandit Run...(as you can see in the video Dave Hall had sent me a new Bandit Run 2011 shirt to wear)... Burt said in my ear when we were talking that he was very disappointed and sorry he missed all of us in Jupiter last year..and that he would love for us to come back..... I posted a few pictures on my website with the video on YouTube... Dave also posted more pics on his website.... Just maybe if we are lucky... he might show up some year !! He is definitely aware of us...and knows the Bandit Run .... Have fun this year.... be safe... see everyone next year !

    I heard of the photo shoot and was wondering who was the lucky one to get their car in. Congrats Ric, definitely see you next year.

     

    Any day above ground is a GOOD day!!!

    Ric - you are the man! Wow! I am so glad you finally got to meet Burt and "bend his ear" a bit about the Bandit Run!

    I gotta say folks, if you haven't been around Ric's '77 SE, you are missing a real treat! It is a special ride. Had it not been for the Sargent "Hot Lips Houlihan'' seeing Ric's car at last year's Beach Patrol Headquarters in Daytona, we would not have gotten to drive on the beach without a $50,000 liability policy. eek image

    Amazing thing - she was all "NO cars on the beach - especially not 100 cars at one time" until she laid eyes on Ric's '77 SE. Upon that moment, her whole countenance changed immediately! idea image She called the Sargent on patrol and set up the whole beach scene WITH AN ESCORT !!

    Ric - you and that car are amazing. Thanks for sharing the news from Tampa !!

    I really hope you can join us in Braselton or Chattanooga this year!
