Jerry - sorry you can't make it, we'll miss you.

I'm not so sure you should be sorry about missing my cooking though! 8O
Don't worry about the beer thing, we'll have that covered!:D

Well, I was hoping that yesterday would go smooth as silk and I'd be able to surprise you guys with a brief appearance of the Grape Snake (yes, I changed the name to something kinder and gentler than the Purple People Eater). However, several small but important things cropped up that prevent me from going further until I get them taken care of.

In addition, my time just became even more in demand. I lost one of my assistant managers, and will have to start working Saturdays as well as longer hours during the week. It looks like it's going to be everything that I can do just to get her on the road and some shakedown miles on before the Fling.

I'm psyched about all the little changes though! :D New engine, tranny, and cooling system; chrome (no polishing) wheels; new lowback seats on order; and sometime this summer I'm adding sway bars front and rear.

One of these days I'll get to show you all the changes, but it may not be until the Fling. :roll: Everyone have fun today!!! I hope to see you all sooner, instead of later!

If you need a break from the Grape Snake, please come over for a beer.

That goes for everybody else that said they aren't coming, or haven't replied. Please pop in if you get the chance!

ZERO PERCENT CHANCE OF RAIN TODAY!!!! GET THOSE COBRAS OUT!! THIS MAY BE THE NICEST DAY OF THE YEAR!!!!! :D:D

Would love to stop by say hello if it's not too late (and dry)! Don't know where your place is though. I'm in Manassas, so it' can't be too far... :D
Can you direct me via email or phone? 703.257.3575

Thanks Beth & Wade!

Thanks for the great time, especially for the ride around the block. My neck has returned to its normal shape but my jaw still aches (from the stupid S.E. grin I'm still wearing) :D
Hmm, might have to rethink my choice of seats, maybe highbacks...

Wade,

Thanks for having us all over there. Great company, great weather, great food. But the weather gods realized your car was too close to the garage to make it worth their while to try to fill it up with water--so this was not a true test, and you will continue to be Rain Man until there is clear and convincing evidence to the contrary. Thanks again :lol:
