Thanks Mike! Ours are original 1956...we just polished them.

I have seen other "originals" that weren't polishable though - guess we got lucky!

Ken...There are probably some attendees who are not on the Forums, so if you get a kick-back from an email address from someone who hasn't given you a Forum handle, please give them a call to let them know that you got thier deposit check and to get their correct email...I've received a note from one attendee who is concerned that their check has been lost...I directed them to email you to ask for confirmation. Thanks.

Shari - Yes I would say you got lucky with those stacks - the best I could do was paint them...

I though I had already posted a reply to thus, Oh well Old Timers Disease.

Without a lot of expensive tooling it would be almost impossible to form these with hand tools. However we could probably improve them.

Ok folks, I have my plane tickets. I am arriving in ABQ around noon on Thursday the 9th. I will be renting a car from the airport. As mentioned, I have a limited diet and will be visiting the grocery stores, etc. If anyone wants a ride from the airport and/or wants to go shopping, let me know. We are leaving Enchanted Falls on Monday morning sometime to visit Sante Fe for a couple of days. We fly out of ABQ on Wednesday mid-afternoon.
If anyone needs to get a hold of me, please do so. I've responded to two posts- hopefully you've received responses... Im looking forward to helping to fix food, etc. Last year the stove worked in the rented trailer so i should be able to cook there- or in the facility kitchen.
You can also call/text me: 860.304.2117. (I'm on Atlantic time) and Direct email : sparklerae@gmail.com

Talking

I wish you WOULD keep all the wind in northern NM! We've had so much wind the trailers are rocking and alum panels are popping like crazy. Sounds like a Jamaican steel drum concert. Thank goodness for A/Ss; white boxes must be in big trouble.

This is our first Resto Rally; we are really looking forward to meeting all of you and learning a lot. We sure need it.

Is there a good reason to bring the '55 fixer-upper or should we opt for comfort in one in good condition? Not sure the '55 would be road-worthy anyway by then, but is there an added value in having it present?

Thanks Ken for alerting us to this rally and for assorted info over the phone!

Vivian in Idaho
