I should have mentioned it a few months ago, but my friend Donnie Whitmer that was at SCR last year in the blue '69 Chevelle SS lost his house and almost everything he owned in the tornado on Dec 10th. The Chevelle survived, but that's just about the only thing that did. He and his wife were fine. A picture of Donnie's Chevelle is in Hemmings Muscle Machines.

Well, DAMN, sorry to read this, Freddie. How are they doing with getting back on their feet ? Is their house being rebuilt ?

I haven't talked to him since the tornado went though. I'm sure he's been busy. I haven't noticed any houses being built in the area. Some are still trying to clean up. I spend a couple of days there with my chainsaw cutting up trees so they could be cleared, but it looks like work has slowed down a lot lately.

I don't know Jamie. I've been meaning to ask him if he needed anything, but I've been busy with my divorce, moving and other stuff and I haven't got around to talking to him. I'll try to talk to him soon and see how he's doing. I'd like to get his Chevelle in my shop and do something to fix that horrible wheel hop that was causing him so much trouble at Beech Bend. He was also having problems keeping the belts on it.

I found my registration I had set aside a "while" ago under a mound of paperwork on my desk last week and sent it in. Hopefully you have it soon.
Hotel has been reserved for months...

My registration has been sent and I got a room for Friday night this time, so I don't have to drive home each day. The room is probably about the same cost as the gas it would take to drive my truck home and back again.

I hear ya there. Already been to Kansas and then New Mexico with the truck last month. 65 mph max gets me ~12.5.
