The 6th O-2-O Reunion Tour was GREAT!

Thanks to you Dom, your tour will be most memorable for many reasons. You made it both fun and interesting in the driving tours and seeing the sights in and around Chattanooga. I had no idea that Coker Tire and Honest Charlie's were both located in Chattanooga. It was also nice to meet your daughter and son-in-law.
Once again, many thanks for your efforts and we look forward to our next meeting. Will keep you posted on next year's tour in New York.

I want to thank you for all the hard work and time you spent making the tour such a wonderful success.…

Tennessee Trip

Well, it's less than two weeks away now, I'm sure more and more time is being spent on thinking about packing or already getting it done.  The cars are getting a once over and getting set for another meeting of our O2O club. I must say that so many of our best touring days have been spent with O2O and I bought my Model T 30 years ago ( it is now in England enjoying a second life in Lincolnshire at Larry's Mum's home where we visit each year in August).…

The team headed North along the coast in Portugal and visited several historic places and places.  The weather was less than we had hoped for, chill mornings and light to heavy rain followed us most of the trip.

Clara is almost ready to hit the road

Thanks to the hard work of several friends, Clara is almost ready to hit the road again. She has a new wooden frame, the sheet metal has a fresh coat of glossy black paint, the hogs head was rebuilt (the wreck broke it!), and she is even sporting a new interior. Dan would be proud of his friends. He was able to complete so much of the restoration, then his illness took most of his energy. His last weekend, Dan was out in the garage with friends and family working on Clara. He loved working…
