A last minute addition to the schedule!
Saturday Sept. 17
Departing Decatur. A late start, by recent
standards, at 5:36!
The scene in the Oak Grove Walmart parking lot.
Phil Reed of Meguiar's provided this great spot, right next to the free drinks!
I finally spotted Barry ("Car
Crazy") Meguiar right across the lane.
Some time later I got him to our display and he
autographed the left cover.
That's him, right above the "C".
OK, Meguiar's show is a wrap; On to Funfest in
This was another last minute decision. I hadn't been to
Funfest since 2002, the last time I was invited. The 10th anniversary of 9/11 last weekend had me thinking. On 9/12/2001
I was on
the road from Maine to Funfest. To say it was a memorable trip would be an
understatement. I decided I should go back, if only to thank Mike Yager for that
inspirational weekend. See link.
Leaving Oak Grove for Effingham.
Sunday, Sept 18
I got there too late Saturday to see much.
Sunday morning was very quiet; rain scheduled to start mid-day.
I caught 2 seminars with Dave McLellan and Fred Gallasch.
Then I spotted my Celebrity Pick from Carlisle
last year, with Kathleen Huber at the wheel. Always great to see her!
On the dash was a VETTE Magazine that I had not seen, open to a page featuring
BOTH her Vette and mine!
Gotta see if I can get a back issue...
Oh yeah, the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile!
And who comes walking by it but Corvette
authors Jerry Burton and Jerry Heasley.
A couple of Mike Yager's "Barn Find"
And his C5 development mule.
Time to head home; the storm is about to hit...
Back home in Sweet Home Alabama!
