Re: Litchfield Bug-In Report

Charles was a little wrong, I was there.

I was standing next to Todd Daley, when they were talking, but failed to
introduce myself.   My deepest apoligies.

As Charlie said not to many T-3's, but a nicely painted T-4. It had a Drip
paint them, done like Flames, soaring down the car.

I do think the venue was better than last year, way more Show Space.

I found a few original T-3 Mufflers, anybody need one?
Todd Daley also found a pair of NOS T-3 Carbs.:O)
All in all, a nice show.
