The feeling of getting a National Top Flight is a tremendous sense of accomplishment. This was not a one man show, many people provided me direction and information to assure the project of restoration was done correctly. I thank everybody who provided me this direction and encouragement to continue to the National level.
FYI for all those who are working toward this goal, the judging is much tougher each time you reach the next level...Chapter - Regional - National. However the trick is to LEARN at each level, make corrections that are pointed out to you, and you will be successful.
I can not say the judging process in "enjoyable" , it is nerve racking, but the result does provide VALUABLE information that when used can provide you with a true sense of accomplishment.
I think all the judging was fair, and I still have every intention to make the recommended changes I have learned about at the recent National level.
Janet and I also had a good time; Great Music! I wish I could have spent more time in the C-2 area, but I was on a mission, I needed to learn as much as I could about the 61 fuelie, and there was two good 61 FI cars there to view. Got to OJ mechanicals on the 61's.
Maybe we will see you and Meg at Carlisle, it is going to be a busy week, lots of parts to buy.
