Latest post of the previous page:

Definitely add me to the list again for this year. My rebuilt engine goes back in next month and I'm sure it'll need some fine tuning!

Well, I'm this far in (8 or 9 years?) that I can't miss out now. See you in variable weather Vermont. I may have a few others in the area signing up this year. I will get in contact with them.

A friend saw this video. Based on your history of tools he gave me a vintage Craftsman ratchet to pass onto you when you are here.

Hey Colin...We weren't able to get together last tour. Let's try again, looking to replace wiring harness, and padded dash. Not sure if the dash replacement is something you do. I'm in Arlington Vt on River Road.

Count me in if you are heading this way. Thanks to Tim Peters for sending me a reminder and a link to Owen's cool video.

(forget to mention, it's a '74 Ghia ragtop...)

I hope you all are enjoying your Vermont winter as much as I am watching it here from Florida.

Coldest winter I have experienced in my 20+ years here. Although, today is icy, muddy Sunday. Aside from the 1940's Hollywood movie picture postcard white Christmas, no not enjoying it.

I'm hoping Vermont will be kind to you and me this year. We have had a few good days in the driveway. Although, nothing will beat the ominous black storm with straight line winds while you drove my bus like a possessed demon trying to recreate the bucking engine problem. At least I hope not.

Oh, that video is so great. Haven’t we all had these conversations with Colin? Hey, that video needs to be posted on the Itinerant Facebook page, and more prominently displayed here, on this site.

Thanks. I know my son Owen was kicking himself for missing some quintessential Colin moments, but I think he captured a bit of the essence of an IAC visit pretty well.

I can post it wherever (I'm sure the young filmmaker won't mind) if someone wants to give me guidance as to where.

If it makes financial sense for you - I'm interested in half a day. Oh, and the vehicle of choice? The Lincoln :blackeye: But, understand you would probably have to double your prices to account for the gas, so whichever bus is most comfortable for you to tour in .... gotta take those things in consideration when you are pushin' the big 6 Oh. :flower:

Maybe I should . . . Michigan isn't that far. Just carve out ten days for silliness and have a tow outfit on stand-by.

That would be cool! And I would not be shy asking you if I could take it for a spin around the block!
