Breakfast and Chat

Got a phone call this morning from Dan Lonnen (rokon2813). He was in the area helping out a friend and could spare a few minutes to get together talk a while. I headed up the road to meet him. We got a bite of breakfast and shot the breeze for about an hour, then Dan needed to head back home to New York. I really enjoyed seeing Dan again. Last time we met face to face was in 2006 at GOTO in Canandaigua, NY.We found a nice lady at a convenience store who would take a picture of the two of us.

For those of you who have never met us, the one on the left is Dan Lonnen (rokon2813) and the one on the right is me, Rod Hubbard (HubbardRA).

We were supposed to get a few flurries this evening. Looks like you hit quite a bit more than that. Glad you made it OK. That is good time, if you made it from Opal, Va to your home in 8 hr 15 min. Much faster than I did the time I came up to Canandaigua.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
