Reservations made in Niagara on the Lake.

Very timely PBS show on now about the War of 1812, much of which took place in the Niagara region.

Nice to see PBS acknowledge what all Canadians learned in school ,that Canada was the overall victor despite a last minute defeat at the Battle Of New Orleans.
Thanks Don....but do I have to sleep with Joey?

Well, its 7pm saturday, Im in the barn watching Barrett /Jackson and Im still grining ear to ear......Once again a big thank you to Plycar, 360 was shipped without a hitch.But my biggest thank you goes out to Chris McGregor "NARDO".........
We have been friends for a while now and to see 360 come off the truck just as he described and then some........
360 is a very solid and tight early GT. All of its glory will be documented in the months to come...... thanks again to the GTGUYS, they shipped some overnite stuff to get the ball rolling and I have already done some of it......
ANYONE else that has this itch, like Jeff did from seatle or we do.....JUST DO IT!
Im happy and Im healthy so far and Nardo feels the same, work is work,the kids are big and we get a break from the bosses at home....:biggrin
Chris and I have been on the phone for hours just going over everything.......... Its very exciting and I think its well worth it!
So follow along will post the new AIR COMPRESSOR , that replaced the missing can and much more.....ENJOY GTJOEY1314:thumbsup

Spring at the "Barn" sounds great. That way I can get the GTG to take care of a few things before I move out West in June.

You only have to stary in Amsterdam if you fly KLM. Have the car land in the U.K. (maybe take a quick 3 hour trip to Poole to see the McLaren factory & F1 facility or Oxfordshire to see the Aston-Martin facility. Simon could hook you up!),,,,,Then, take the Chunnel to France. from there,,,off to LeMans and the rest of your European trip.

Just a suggestion..........

John, this was a great decision as we have 10 gt's lined up already for the spring......
RPM, as for sunday , we are in no rush......9am ish at the house and we enjoy the ride...
On another note, we have DON CARSON,CHRIS McGREGOR, Howie Lucas, Neil,Gtjimmy and wives all going to Europe as it stands.....
Don/Jimmy and our own 360 are all to be shipped by plane........Neil and the original GT40 GROUP will be waiting on the other side of the pond......
The game plan is tour eurpoe from Goodwood to LeMans and head back.
I just recieved GREATNEWS that Aston Martin will have all the facilities at both tracks,booths,tents and all........
Neil's connections will help out greatly, as we still need a complete route for the drive....
This will be ALOT of work over the next 6 months to make it fly, ALL hands on deck to make this journey complete.....
Looks like Virgin first class will be set up too.......
ALOT TO DO .......KEEP READING.........GTJOEY1314

The "boss" has given permission, as long as I'm back home by 5pm, showered and ready to go out for dinner with people that I'd really prefer not to dine with, but sometimes, you have no choice. If I leave by 2:30ish, I should make all my appointments. I'll leave a few minutes before 8am, and be out to you @9ish. Let's see if we can get a few more, give the cops some good "bait"!!
