    Lots of nice old cars and what I like is they drive them. That would be a fun event to drive.

    Why did they give the girl starting the cars a checkered flag instead of a green flag?

    They had misplaced the checkered flag,

    so utilized an unused green flag instead,

    as opposed to having to cancel the Event.

    Next question.

    Well if nothing else she should have had a skimpy top and focused on her more.

    I agree Ron. I saw a TV program about this event a couple of years ago and if I remember correctly (which is really questionable), I think all of the cars have to be original steel bodies. Lots of old Henry Ford iron at that event. I'd love to attend sometime.

    I think, if I correlated the sounds to right cars, that I really like the sound of the flatheads!

    Last years Hill Climb. This would really be a fun event to drive in I think. Now if Nomad would just loan me one of his old classics.

    Ron,

    You mean like loan Nomad should loan you Silverback ... Silverback definitely falls under the category of "an old classic".

    Well Carl, at least you are correct with the "old" part. Not sure if I'm a classic or not.
