Hi Guys.   

I finally got around to putting some finished photos of ole Targa Blue in an album for you to enjoy.  Those of you at The Gathering saw it, so this is for you unable to attend.

I picked the car up from the paint shop on Wednesday May 11th and left for Effingham on Tuesday May 17th.  It only had a few minor electrical glitches which were easily repaired.  I put 937 miles on it and except for a small roadside repair involving plastic ties and the fan shroud, it ran great.  Never missed a beat.

 

I didn’t have many finished photos, so I included some from The Gathering.  Hope that’s OK.

 

I want to tell you again how much I enjoyed The Gathering with old friends, and meeting new ones.  Thank you all for helping set that up. 

 

Enjoy.

 

Dean

Dean, it was a pleasure to have met you and get to see your awesome car! I feel a kindred feeling of what you went through since we were having our cars painted at the same time. Hope you had agood time at the Gathering. I KNOW I did! Take care.

Dean,
 
Great pictures! 
 
Cheryl and I were very happy to have met you and all the other people we can now call "friends" from C3VR.
 
As far as the TargaBlue goes, boy it does look great!  I'm happy that you even went so far as to make sure the color of tie straps matched the rest of the engine.  That's what I call attention to detail.
