Pete's Place

Hello everyone. Spring appears to be trying to get through to us. I sure hope it makes it soon. Had the Duster out last week & all appears OK. Still need to get the Imperial out & I'm still fixing little things on the '62 Fury. Jake's Coronet is about ready to race. We're also getting a stroker small block for Jake's '85 dually. It's to be the tow vehicle. CWE is also building a motor for my son Jay's '66 Belvedere. We should be all motored up soon. Jake rebuilt our open trailer & we've used it. Appears to work great, so that's done. A little more time & money and we'll be rollin. Time & money, ever had that come up before?

Anyway, I know spring is coming 'cuz my lawn is a muddy mess & the grass is almost to my knees. Musta been a windy winter. We have more deadfall in the yard than ever before. Should make for a nice big bonfire sometime soon (when the mud goes away enough to pick things up).

Went down to Cortland to visit members Jack & Mary Buttino with Terry Morse & John Buckley. They each store a couple cars at Jack's. We had a nice visit & got the cars. No issues enroute home.

Hey, anybody else see Bob & Peri Behnke's cars in the Sunday paper? Nice writeup! I never knew Bob has resurrected the Fury from the almost dead. Nice job Bob! I thought it was always that nice.

Cruise nites & the Coffee Cruise start shortly. Hope to see you all around.

Our Show plans are moving along as usual. Next meeting is Thursday May 16th at the Red Onion. Come join us & let the Board know if you have any input.

Mopar2ya, VP Pete

I went to the Don Garlits Mopar Show again this year. Earl drove his “new” Shelby Dakota while Marianne and Her brother & sister in-law followed us. Earl didn’t want to park way out in the parking lot, so he entered the Show so we could park on the field. Lo & Behold, he took 3rd place in Stock Truck. 1 pic is of Marianne receiving the trophy from BIG & the other is of E&M in front of the truck. A BIG Trophy from BIG hisself!!!
