I'm in. Sounds like Jeff is still coming. Figure out a departure time or route yet?

Talked with Josh about rolliing out with all the Flat-Head V8's to Vantage Saturday morning, they are meeting up at 6am and take-off shortly after, from Antique Auto Ranch. So I bet no one wants to leave that early.

For those that don't know, the Flat-Head run is between Spokane and Seattle guys, most Flat-Heads to Vantage by Noon wins, they are having a band about 1pm, Gorilla, Chicken and Rabbit.

We could leave about 10am, then get to Vantage about 1pm, check out the cars, then head down to Yakima??? Or?

Sounds good to me. I will be driving the 57. Not sure if the family will be coming at this point. That may be a last minute decision.

Looks like the weather will be perfect, again. I love this time of year.

OK, I take it back. The weather appear to be not so perfect for the weekend. I don't care. I fixed the wipers on the bus so they work. They still suck, and are likely not much better than going without, but that's OK.

Actually, it doesn't work so well with buses. The main part of the windshield stays clear at speed, but the air flow makes a puddle form right in front of my eyes in the upper, inner corner of the windshield. Plus, unless you have nice smooth glass, it leaves a sheen on there at night that is tough to see through.

I'm going to duct tape my windshield seals, since they are 50 years old. Considering wearing rubber boots to keep my feet dry. Gotta get the heat hooked up, too. Off to the shop to get ready!

Well, how did the trip go? Hopefully problem free....I was watching the rain come down here on Sunday, and hoping that you guys didn't get caught in that! It was crappy driving it in a work truck, I could only imagine it in a bus!

I will start a picture thread in Car Pictures, can't add photos here, or at least I can't. Trip went well, no issues with the 5 Buses.
