Greetings,

When I bought my car the body and been set so low that it sat directly on the car's frame.  There wasn't any support provided by the shocks so every time I went over any bump the body would lift and crash down on the frame.  We've subsequently lifted the front end about 1-1/2 - 2 inches to solve that problem and the car drives and handles immeasurably better.  But my wife now reports when she follows me she sees that the front end appears higher than the rear.

I hope that we can find some time at Carlisle to discuss whether we have any options to remediate this by lifting the rear?

Thanks,

Marshall

Notice  Carlisle Banquet Dinner: The prospect of having the banquet dinner is slim at best. I have received just 8 reservations to date. We booked for a minimum of 30 people and  secured the facility with a $500 deposit.  Should there not be the 30 minimum reservations made by Sunday April 18th, I'll cancel the booking and hope that I can recover my deposit.

Please: Follow the instruction to make the $60.00 per person Pay Pal payment as two have not done so and their actual amount paid is $57.96.

Now THAT conjures up quite the mental image:

Marty and Stan crammed into the Alpha Romeo Giulia Ti Sport with their two, small backpacks packed for the long weekend.

Marty in his Italian Mohair traveling sweater, Italian driving gloves, heal-and-toe driving shoes, Armani sun glasses and Giuseppe Calvanaro "Sport" watch.

Stan in his best "PipeFather" outfit; "Speedsters meet Spyders" Tee-shirt, Carter's dress Chinos and Eddie Bauer slippers (his Timberland walking shoes stowed neatly in the back, next to the supply of Bison Jerky and "Fronions"), trying to find a comfortable position in that tiny seat made for Italian, non-Orangutan bodies, for the long ride from Morton, Illinois to Mechanicsburg, PA.  

Sounds a lot like and "Felix and Oscar" take a road trip.

11.5 hours of pure motoring fun with Marty and Stan!

"Plenty of room" .......Quietly referred to as Hoffa trunks.

Would that be the four-man, Cadillac Sedan de Ville trunk or the larger, more luxurious Oldsmobile 98 six-man trunk?

Come to think of it, "Dear Leader Stan" must have a six-man trunk in his rolling annex of Stanistan - He could drive THAT to Carlisle and just sleep back there!

And as Alan said; "Mask Up, Y'all!"

And since we haven't talked at all about having T-Shirts this year, might I propose these for the group as a reminder, with maybe a few replica cars on the back:
