TR6 Bill did us proud with a FIRST PLACE!

Some one walked through the show with a movie camera (but I don't think Triumphs were the favored car):

It looks to be geared more towards MG's, but that's OK, as long as Bill won.

It was a good show, though I wouldn't say it's geared more to MG's - they just showed up. For ecample, only one other Wedge there besides mine; wish more had come out.

Were you there, Vettedog?

WISH I could have made that show. I had to go to Vicksburg for some Rotary traning. The fun we give up for community service. I even liked the motorcycles, the lone Bently and Jags but Bills TR6 is out standing in the pictures; I did not think it could be better than a few years ago when I first saw it but it has improved. The movie of the show just did not linger long enough over the TR6's and other Triumphs.

I see Poolboy finished with a very respectable second. He kinda reminds me of Kenny Rogers in that photo.
I had a grandaughters first birthday to attend, and wasn't able to make it this year. All was not lost as my son made a crawfish boil out of the occasion.
My congrats to Bill and Ken.

Kenny Rogers. I guess it was about 25 years ago that he had a Saturday night concert in the small town of Hammond, La. where we lived.
I needed a part for my car, so I rode my bicycle across town to a parts place that was open on Sundays.
When I walked in the store a customer was staring at me, grinning like a mule eating briars. Finally I noded at him; then he said "You Kenny Rogers ?". Amazing, the guy had to see me thru the picture window, pull up on the bike wearing cut-offs and a greasy T-shirt.
I said "The bus broke down".
