Bob (Bigtoe) expressed interest in OC so he's a maybe! I gotta get on Mike and try to get him there! (love his pictures, he's OK too) Hank and I are already registered. Hopefully Dan can get his tranny straightened out in time, but I expect him either way (hint, hint). I gotta take my door apart this weekend and see if I can figure out why the latch is hanging up. No biggie (except when it won't latch Angry ). Let's see if we can get a big turnout! Last show of the year, you know!

Started to remove tranny today, getting it out tomorrow to try to figure out clutch problem....BUT while I was under there I noticed the right front brake caliper leaking fluid down the tire onto the floor, so more $$$$ and work into the money pit  before I could make Corvettes for Chip....You might have to come up and pick me up Barry Exclamation

Only trouble is, that will be REAL HARD if Jackie goes! With her transport chair, you can't even lay in the back (not that that would be possible ,either). Did you just replace the rear calipers before?

I almost forgot! Hank and I will be at WaWa at 7 am Nov. 6. Should have wives in tow.

P.S. Tore both doors apart today. I think I found the problem causing the latch not to work. It seems the driver's side mechinism was binding occasionally, sticking the lock lever in the center. A little cleaning, a little white lithium grease, and we're good as new. You an even unlock the door from the driver's side with the key! (very difficult previously). Then a wire broke off the power lock switch, MAN!!!!! Fixed that and then put on the new armrest (broke the old one trying to get the door to shut). Always something!!!!

I'll be heading out from LukesVette HQ about 630 AM to meet  up at Hanks Diner at 8.  If anyone from NJ is planning to go and wants to meet up at the Pa Turnpike Interchange I'd estimate being there by 7 AM or a tad after.

That's cool, Jeff! My daughter and son in law live in Tucson, AZ. I've always wanted to go to SEMA, It's supposed to be really cool. Just make sure you keep your calendar free next year, because once you attend a couple get-togethers, you'll be hooked! It's always the more, the merrier! We're trying to become a presence at these car shows! Hope to see your car, too!

Just wanted to throw this out there one more time! Anybody who's close buy and has been on the fence should try to come! It is really a nice show and is also being promoted by Corvette Pals and Lance Miller himself. Get your Vette out one more time and join the party!
