I drove the Reflector Collector down there last year. It took me about 4 hrs each way taking the backroads. It was a nice drive but a little long for my old ass in a slammed VW.


I may take the vert down this year.

Yeah, I'll take the camera next time. It's funny because I usually have my camera in my truck or my pocket or in the shop most of the time.

I see. I've got to take the kids to Disney again soon...haven't been in a while. The place is just so damned expensive, especially if you want to stay at one of their "resorts".

Why do you have to "put your two cents in,"
but it's only a "penny for your thoughts"?
Where's that extra penny going to?


Just remember saying I'm sorry and appologizing are the same thing.
Unless you are at a funeral.

I did take the camera!! It was acting up on me so I only took a few pics and half of them are out of focus. I haven't put the pics on photobucket yet though. I'll tell of our adventure in the Southeast Corner thread.

I have seen that car at a couple of different shows, the guy that owns it is a pretty cool guy to talk to but he didn't build it, the chop is really fucked up on it and he said that wants to redo it the right way, the car has a lot of trick little details done to it, all in all it's a fun little ride though.

Here are more pictures of the Lakeland Show. Sorry I could not get them up sooner, but the originals are 10MP and all of them have to be downsized to get them up on the Bucket.
If anyone wants a full sized one, just PM me and I'll send it
to them.
Great to see Charlie and the Jacksonville people again.
