    Hello Car Buddies,
    The Fourth of July was great and the fireworks were beautiful in Schoolcraft,MI see attachment
    July 5th, The Holiday In Express in Jackson was the kick off place to be at 6:00 pm on Thursday night where all the car buddies got together
    and talked about old times and make new friends.
    You guessed it Harold & I and the Kids were late.
    We lost our power, we had a dead short and had to take the car back home and drive the Burb...LMBO!!!
    One of these days we will get all the problems resolved and we will be good to go...
    That's what happens when you build it from the ground up, she just wants some extra LOVE to show us who's boss. LOL!
    JULY 6 & 7th "The Double Date" in Jackson, Michigan in Beautiful Ella Sharp Park....Was a very warm week-end
     Not as big as we would have liked, but it was a good show and great turn out. It was BUZZING! and the DJ was hot!
