That is GREAT!

Mike,

I really haven't kept records that will allow me to give you a definitive answer. We've been traveling between 45 and perhaps 50 MPH at times, slower up the hills of course, but stop a lot to keep me from becoming crippled with stiffness.

Left Salem, Oregon, a little after noon last Sunday and got to Denver yesterday, Friday, and about 5:30 PM local time.

Finally got to Bert's Model A Center today and it was definitely awe I felt after seeing the scope of their operation.

But what's more amazing is what is happening right now, thanks to employee Joe Wylie, who pointed out some issues with my car.

The story isn't over yet so I'll just tease for now. Stay tuned for more regarding the fantastic folks at Bert's.

Ken, just don't think I have the time to do it, as I really need to hold this trip down to three weeks if I can.

Wish that wasn't so, as that sounds like lots of fun and with a free meal to boot. Almost irresistible.

Greg, glad you enjoyed Bert's. It is well worth spending the time to stop by and see their operation.

Got it! You are lucky to have found Joe. The guys at Bert's are great, I have been buying from them for a long time.

Your Joe Willey link has a bad address. Take out one of the two http's that is screwing up the link.
