Thursday, May 11, all are welcome to join me on The Bank Run.

Leaving the Courtyard by Marriott in Camp Hill at 9:45, we'll take a spirited hour-and-fifteen minute tour over country roads to the First National Bank Museum in Columbia, PA, where Nora (daughter of the original museum conservators) will give us the $10 tour of the only mid-1800s bank in America that's been preserved in its original building, followed by lunch at Hinkles, a 124 year old restaurant and former pharmacy.

After that you can retrace the scenic route or hustle back to the hotel on the highway.

More later.

I'm afraid that Chris and I started that trend (arriving on Wednesday) when I was event organizer just so we could tie up any loose ends before everyone arrived.  Once word got out we were getting there early a whole bunch of adventure-starved people started showing up Wednesday, too.  That might be when we all discovered the Caddy Shack restaurant, over at the Armitage Golf Course in Mechanicsburg.  It was light years better than "Hoss's (sp) Steak House" in Carlisle.  

Hey folks I have set Saturday's Dinner at 6 pm at Snapper's. We can all go together and get separate checks.

Glenn and I took the 240Z=LS1 to Ocean City last fall  WOW.

I pulled up behind a blue Z with two white stripes the other day. Had a personalized plate: Z VIPER.  When the light changed I found out why. I hope I see it at a C&C this summer. I’d love to see how he wedged a V10 in that engine bay.

In related news, the guy that welded my cookie cutter was building this:

Um...  Wow!

Did you gentlemen ever see "Blue Mamba"?



This car was built about 10 years ago in a tiny little farm town less than an hour from my front door - which I think is pretty fantastic.

The link is to an article with some build photos. It's a SEMA car, so not my bag of chips... but it's also a V10 Ghia, so how can anybody not love that?

I'd happily roll it.
