I wish I had known you were going to be there yesterday. I had the day off and headed into Tacoma. I almost stopped there but had a call from another friend who wanted to ride up to "FRY'S" so off we headed.

Glad you went, however I'm sure the stress of so much work must have been horrible.
I was actually there on Thursday Henry. There was a local company putting on a seminar about virtualization, something I'm learning all I can about since we are about to embark on our first virtualized system.

This was the first time I saw any of the collection Paul. Unfortunately since I was there to learn some stuff for my job, I didn't get to see the whole collection. I will be going back soon with at least one of my sons though.


Tigger, yes I rode my bike, of course.

Yep Bill, gotta be somebody, might as well be me.

John (ziadelsol), yeah it was a tough day at work for sure. Most of my work days are not quite like this one however.

The old Harrah's automobile collection did run up every one of their cars in a rotating order. It was an amazing collection. One problem with a lot of old vehicles is that a lot of them are lost due to being converted into hot rods or some such. At least a museum prevents total loss of these vehicles in a manner many people can see them. Leno's collection while admirable doesn't do much for many people.

I don't know how LeMay's new museum operates but at the old location most of the cars were kept in runable condition.
Yes a lot of old cars have been hot rodded. Old iron is getting harder to get. Now we can buy brand new 55-57 Chevrolets, Ford Model A, Ford 32-36 and a few more all steel complete bodies and even more parts like fenders and doors for old iron. It is great to see cars like 37 Chevrolets and others cruising down the highways looking like they did from the factory, except the paint is better and the wheels are nicer. Most people say "Did you see that neat old car?" Maybe someday Leno will make "Big Dog Garage" into a place one can see and "TOUCH" his collection when he is not driving them.

Life is a collection of stories we old people tell and hope a few will listen and carry them into the future.

There is a story to everything we have, everyone we have met and everything we have done or we will do or dream about doing.

We sometimes ride to forget, but hopefully we never forget to ride.
