A good engine.  I guess they're everywhere.
There's a reason it's called Ol' Unreliable

Sadly I really missed meeting up and talking with all my friends at this years  fall reunion.
I simply had  too much going on and I ended up getting sick over the weekend.
Glad that most of the threatening rain stayed away during the event.

All of us had a great time at the reunion even with the rain on Saturday.  The off road park was a blast also.

Here is Hawkeye's footage of the reunion on Friday:



Saturday had consistent rain but Thursday and Friday had no rain and we had a lot of fun. 38 cars were on the lot so I feel pretty good about that considering the forecast. The banquet had 75 and was over at 7:50 so that's a new record. The food was the best I remember ever having. Mark Brady did a very cool presentation and video on his Willys jeep racing. I plan to go see that next time. Art and Darlene Gloss were once again elected to serve as President and First Lady for 2019.

Special thanks to Tom, Randy, and Melissa from the Auto World Museum for taking great care of us. Better than any hotel ever would!

I was very glad to see and interview Tom Johnson. he also brought Art and Darlene some old photos of past reunions which I plan to copy and share with you.

Potawatomi was a blast and we wheeled it pretty hard I thought. The rain was not a factor ... other than the greasy rocks which is midwest wheeling.

Thanks to you guys for coming and joining in the fun! It was good to catch up as we do every year!

My apologies for the late posting...my hard drive crashed and its been taking a couple of weeks to recover all the website original photos and data files.

I just uploaded the pictures from the Fall Reunion as well as JPETs Drone "Hawkeye" coverage, Tom Johnsons interview and the Offroad video.
