Is it Just Me,,,,,,,,

Is it just me or did anybody else incur a turkey and dressing nap this afternoon? Shirley and I had a great time and survived the relatives. We hope ALL of you guys had a good helping of the same. See you'ns next year and I'm already plotting Star stashes around the USA in preparation for another marathon Road Trip.
And, keep in mind, the DMAC Museum project is still very much in the works.

Merry Christmas, my nap today was on the flight from NJ to San Diego. And now Peg and I are in San Diego for about 8 weeks. But it is colder in San Diego tonight than it was in NJ when we departed.

Merry Merry Christmas to everyone.
Got a great present from Ray up in Canada just a few days before Christmas his 30 Durant 407 sedan 4dr all stock and w the big W8 engine.
It seem to have 3:90 gears in the rear end as RPMs are down at 50 MPH..Got to get the tach on and will know more.
Runs great, looks pretty good we are happy. Converting to 12 volt w/ alternator and a extra set of headlights so we can see to drive it safely at night,
and the 5 new Lester WW tires are here already from Lucas Tire, and Kenyon Machine has already made the alum base for the lighted lead crystal glass angel for the radiator cap. Brides and photographers love those glass angels. Charlie come on by and drive another 407 .
Looking forward.
