This years Fall Tour started Thursday morning the 20th at Arcadia, Ok. and wound it's way up old Rt. 66 to Tulsa. Here the club will meet up with the Tulsa A's and then it's on to the Grand Lake area of the state.
Friday night they stayed in a motel in Claremore and it was discovered VaughnCilles car had a broken front main leaf spring. Next door was a custom hot rod body shop, and inside the fence was the part she needed on an old rusty frame. They guys were drooling ( Kent, Greg, & Scott) and considering climbing the fence to get the part. Sheryl kept telling them NOT to climb the fence. :) Anyway, they called the owner, who'd already driven an hour to get home. He turned around and came back, gave her the part, and let the guys use his shop to fix it. There are still some great people out there! What are the odds of them staying at a hotel next door to a fenced area with the part she needed, and then that the owner would do all that? I think the Mitchells had some kind of mechanical issue, too, at the beginning of the trip, but so far everyone else has done great.
