I echo everyone's comments, commending Jamie and Dawn and Bob on the great Meet! Their Thursday's and Friday's lineup of events barely gave us time to catch our breaths. Cruising to all these local venues put another 300 miles on my F.
We're especially grateful to Legendary Interior's COO, Brian Ridley, for leading 80+ of us Club members of a tour of Legendary's state-of-the art production facility. Brian mentioned that the largest tours he had previously agreed to was of 10-12 people. It was especially challenging for Brian, as Legendary was in full production Thursday, in addition to being short-staffed. Following our tour, Brian mentioned that he jumped in and was running one of their machines. Our classic cars hobby is in great hands with U.S. companies like Legendary!
And thanks to my 'pit crew' who helped install a replacement wire in my distributor for the F to fire up. All I had to do was supply my spare replacement wire and the crew did the rest. Carl Kiekhaefer would have had no advantage over these guys! The F other wise ran great - 1.590 total miles. 13.5 mpg cruising leisurely to John Begian's Tuesday, and 11.9 mpg for the entire trip, fighting strong head- and crosswinds driving westbound Sunday and nasty traffic delays rolling back into the Chicago area.
Looking forward to Lynchburg!
