Great rally, Lindsay. This was a great deal of fun. Well organized and well attended. The demos were great. Not sure what the folks at the flea market next door thought when the M4 cut loose with its Ma Deuce and the main gun, but we all enjoyed it! definately need to have my A2 ready for next year.

I picked up a lot of great deals to help finish up my current project.

Skip let me drive his '43 MB. First time for that. It was sweet! That's him in the passenger seat next to me.


Great time with great friends!

Here are the tanks sorry for the distance.

Lindsay, a great show!
Good bunch of people there.
Spent time with Skip and Russell from Cairo, GA
Saw you 151 at Bill Brooks table.
Nice resto!
Sorry we didnt have time to talk.
Things got kind of hectic and I lost track of you and then had to leave.
Thanks again for the hat and shirt.

That is one crazy Ferret in the last pic. I wonder what that turret is from originally....
