SO as with all good adventurers there was some bumps in the road. It all started on Saturday morning when I was loading up the Eldo for the trip, everything was fine till I tried to get Jon's generator into the back seat. Well no matter what I did it was a no go, I even took out the front seat but still could not make the turn into the car! I had no choice but to take the gen with me as Jon had already paid for it. So into the back of the CTS it went & I was on my way. Got to Mikes & we turned in around 21h for an early start for show-day Sunday. We all meet up ( 6 Caddys ) in a Mc D's parking lot & Gareth take's the lead & like a bat out of hell he's off!! Both he and I race though a yellow light and of course we find we are now 4 Caddys short! 30 min into the drive he & I pull over & we wait for the others to catch up, of course they are all lost. We all get back together & one again we're off......we hit the road & some nut almost runs Jon off the road at the first intersection! Well we finally get there, get our spot for the club & then the world stops! Mike pulls me aside & says......"I left the box of ROTY-A's back at the house"   without though or cause I jump on the grande he just tossed me & said "I'll go back and get them.....I'll GO right now!" 2 & a-half round trip & I was back with the ROTY-A's & the rest of the day went off without anymore red-neck blunders!  

Enjoy the photos Porter.

Good show guys, Rene had his hands full with his two awards. Great idea to display them in front of the Cadillac's. They are all nice, but I'm sure everyone has their favorite : theirs !

 You saved the day Rene! My gut went into my feet when I realised I left the box at home! Thanks again for doing this!

You guys " pulled out all of the stops ". Some of you got lost, your forgot the awards, you went full Redneck on the entire operation but you pulled it off. At least Jon didn't get into an accident. I'll call the mission a win with a few bumps in the road, the show was a smashing success but not exactly a well prepared military type operation by any means. Its a good thing Rene was there to salvage the mission, is he a veteran with " Special Forces " training ?

I still don't know what happened or who was at fault. Maybe Rene could shed some light because I think he saw it.
I checked my blind spot, checked my mirrors, saw no one, then started merging into the left lane. Half way through the turn I do another blind spot check and realize I'm heading into a minivan and I swerve back into the right lane as he start laying on the horn.
I don't know if I missed him on the first check, or if he shot up beside me mid-merge.   I adjust my mirrors after to shrink the size of my blind spot.

Mike will post a nice video for us of the car show when he get's a chance. Its a big build up and almost a let down once its over but we made a good show of it with our ROTY-A props. A lot of work for these car shows. I hope they had some nice Lincolns and Chrysler's there, they were no slouch back in the old days. As Bob Lutz said " we were all about the same ". Big three luxury at its finest, but it was the end of an era for those types of cars.

 I now have the video on my laptop. But it's sideways and I can't turn it the right way. I may just go ahead and post it to yoo toob and see if I can do something with it there.

At Ruthven a fellow came by and started talking Eldorado because he saw mine. He has an '81 identical to Sam's, colour and all.
Had recently purchased it but didn't know very much about it. He said he saw her car at Fleetwood but not her and was surprised
when we said we knew Sam. We saw his car and it was decent but needs some TLC to bring it back. Pam gave him Sam's email
and sent one to Sam telling her that he may get in touch with her.
We invited him to join the club but haven't heard anything yet from him or Sam. All we can do is hope he does.
He is Dave Dunlop out of Burlington. I have his email address and will try to get in touch with him tonight.

I'm sure the video is great and Redneck funny too,  we pulled out all the stops this year.
