That must have been a fun weekend! Car looks great! Danny seems like a very likable guy from watching his show.

Maybe I'm just dense, but what is the deal with the Elkie sitting on R.R. tracks? I see the term "choo-choo" thrown about by guys who own them...but, have never really understood why.

The Count is the only TV car guy that loves 70's cars too!
Never miss an episode.

Glad you had fun! Thanks for the pics.

Awesome!!!!

I almost went, but the feet & knee pain-swelling kept me from going. Tho, a friend stopped to see me on his way to the show.

Where along Route 66 are ya?
