The countdown is now on, and for your added entertainment, I'm bringing a portable DVD player and Peter Gunn DVDs, especially Season 2, Episode 21 "The Hunt," in which Gunn's '59 Sport Fury convertible is the real star of the show. See you gents Friday night when you get back to Mechanicsburg. Assum...

Re: Carlisle 2019!

Yes, Dan, I'll take the room in Mechanicsburg for Friday and Saturday nights, thanks. What a break. Let me know if you need a credit card or info to hold the room. You can reach me on my cell phone at 954-849-9201. Should get there about 4 p.m. Friday.

Re: Carlisle 2019!

Got my registration materials, too! Flying up to Pittsburgh on Thursday afternoon, 7/11, and driving east midday on Friday. Staying in Chambersburg Friday night and driving up to Carlisle Saturday morning. Can you guys try to hold a spot for me on the show grounds for Saturday morning arrival? What ...

Re: Carlisle 2019!

Guys, all went well on my weekend Belvy treks around town and out on the highway. A clunky suspension noise front right turned out to be an old shock, so a new set will go in next week. Should also ease a bit of "floating" issue I noticed. I am in need of a set of rear brake drums, in case you guys ...

Re: Carlisle 2019!

I'll be taking the Belvy out for a spin on the Ohio Turnpike this afternoon, as a warm up drive for Carlisle. It's a beautiful day here and she should get lots of looks out on the highway. Got my new AAA card, just in case. Keep your fingers crossed that I won't be needing it.

Re: Carlisle 2019!

Hi, Dan and crew. Sorry to be waffle man about the arrival date/time. I'm still waiting for final confirmation from my client in Tampa about the the event on July 11. If it's still on, I'll see you on Friday afternoon. If not, I'll be able to come in on Thursday. Appreciate your room sharing offer, ...

Re: My '59 Sport Fury

Hey Steve, I'm still up for a 2-Plymouth convoy to Carlisle if you're planning to come through Youngstown. Going there AND returning, as long as our schedules sync. Looks like I-76 is the best route. Pretty sure my Belvy is in good shape for the trip. Planning to take her out on the Turnpike over co...

Re: Carlisle 2019!

Thanks, Dan. I have a client event in Tampa Thursday morning and will be flying up to Pittsburgh later that afternoon. That's why I'll be a little late to the party. There are a few other motels in the area with rooms available, so I'll be able to find something if Mechanicsburg is booked. Will ever...

Re: Carlisle 2019!

Excellent, thanks Matthew. What do you guys recommend for a nearby room for Friday and Saturday nights? Is Mechanicsburg still an option? I have cousins in Harrisburg as a very very last resort!

Re: Carlisle 2019!

Well, I picked up the Belvy this morning and I am psyched. Carb rebuilt, new brake master and brake job, gas tank leak fixed, differential seal replaced, headlight switch replaced, valves adjusted, tune up, oil change. And countless other mini-fixes. This baby is purring. And all to get ready for th...

Re: Carlisle 2019!

Hey, Dan. Hey, Will. Hey, all you Forward Lookers. I'm back in the Plymouth driver's seat, now that the ice has melted off the Ohio house and it's safe to venture north from Florida. After being parked in the garage since the first snow last fall, the Belvy is back on the road and in for a few repai...
