Hi Ron,
Thanks for the info.  This car was on our Registry from the early 80's as 
belonging to a W. Robert Supplee from New Holland, PA.  Is that the guy who 
owned it when you raced him?  Looks to be in good original condition.

Love your idea about blowing the carbon out on an 1/8 mile strip!  Any of 
our other members who are coming willing to do so?  I do hope so.  Only 
question I have Ron, is there a way to visit York as well?  For folks who 
have been to the Carlisle GFS gatherings, many if not most have been to 
York, so to me the South Mountain Drag Strip would be the choice to make.

Let's hear from the rest of you folks who are coming to the Nats! - just a 
little over 5 weeks away!  See you all then!!!!

Jack Lewis
