Who's going? We're taking the Satellite on Saturday - looks to be the best weather day.

A few interesting pics from the show:

Big Daddy still going strong at 85. He fired up the slingshot, but we only caught the tail end of it.

Butch Patrick (Eddie Munster) driving a replica Dragula. The original went "missing" in 2006. He also had a replica of the Munster Coach there. The original is in a museum.

We're fortunate to live less than 90 minutes drive from Iola. I'm also fortunate to have a wife who's a great sport! This was the last year we could get in for free with our daughter through the Old Cars, Young Drivers category (car 25 years old or older with driver 25 years old or younger). Great weather on Saturday.

I'm sad that I missed the show. Friends that went said it was good and that the weather wasn't stifling hot.

LOL, Steve. No on the grampa talk, but she is attached to the '64. She prefers driving it (with the 727) vs the Hemi 4-speed. I'd be glad to give it to her, but she has no place to put it, living in Chicago. For now it's sitting in my buddy's building in limbo. I haven't driven it since last fall when the Satellite arrived. We've discussed selling it, but for now we're hanging onto it.

I was the same way in 2015 when we didn't make it and the weather was great. Like you said, it's usually hotter than Hades.
