The weather started out iffy. Bad storms rolled in which delayed the show by two hours and it was PERFECT. OVER 350 cars attended which included 15 of the NIAHC Members cars! After the show, club members and friends went to Tim and Renee Mahnansmith's for a Pizza Party and socializing. To top it off, it was my Birthday weekend which made it special, too.Thanks all for the B-Day wishes and cards.
As usual, a few cars had to be worked on. El Presidente had a hard to find intermittent electrical problems which were resolved with Ed Needler and Steve Warner working on the issues but we had to work on it again after the show.

Great day at the Auburn Cord Dusenberg Museum!
We had great weather and turnout for this event which was enjoyed by all! 21 members attended and toured the museum for 2-1/2 hours. This Art Deco era museum is spectacular. What an incredible collection of rare cars are housed in this gem of a museum. The tour was followed by lunch at the Italian Grill which turned out to be a great choice.
