Just pulled outta Tony Packos and onto the Ohio Turpike headed east towards Cleveland tonight. Riding in a way cool little two seat sports car, with my bride to be with me... Singing bad country western trucking songs from the seventies. Doesn't DMKIA live 'round here somewhere btw?

See y'all in Mystic soon.

Happened to me once in a Mini on the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Now I know why they invented hubcaps.

Me too, that's a fact...Just put in 1000 miles down and back to the Outer Banks of North Carolina, Duck NC to be specific, and loved every mile...Travelling with my daughter helped pass the miles, and the week with my sis and her brood was icing on the cake...
Ain't life grand? See y'all in Mystic, with luck...;)

On the road yet Paul? Are you lovebirds staying at the Whaler?

Paul Pless
06-25-2009, 08:17 AM
Just woke up. Don't even know where we are... Somewhere in Eastern Pennslvania. We got off the road about 1am last night.

370Z is pretty cool, decently comfortable, snug, nice sounds, aweome passing gear! good looking... Fun with just the right amount of sports car quirkiness. Got plenty of time to goof off today so gonna do the backroad thing the rest of the way to CT with plenty of stops thrown in for fun and pie of course.

Probably a different musical genre today.:p Ain't Pandora cool?

Russ we'll be at the whaler.

Thought you were staying at Bartlet's?

Paul Pless
06-25-2009, 09:11 AM
We're staying at Bartlett's on Friday night. Are you an agent of their's?;) I think all of their beds are filled by EBSer's.:D

06-25-2009, 09:17 AM

Are you taking I-90? It is much nicer than I-80. Part runs past Erie canal, wierd to see cans and nuns fromm the car. Lots of suicidal deer east of Buffalo.
Good luck.

06-25-2009, 09:44 AM
coupe or convertible?
(we visual people need to make an accurate picture in our minds :o)
I'm amazed you can fold yourself into one of those, Paul.

06-25-2009, 09:49 AM
I think I recall Paul Pless say that he had a MGB. If so, and this is what they are driving, he is a brave man indeed.

(from a guy who used to have one but learned his lesson.)

(I drive a Toyota now...totally sexless, but I ask you...why does a guy like me need a sexy car?!!!)

Lew Barrett

370Z. Sounds like a great way to get there....drive the hell out of the boss's car!
I'm betting "coupe."
