Hi Paul and Claire...Missed this thread in January so thought I would join in now. I live in Vernon and go to the track a bit, recognized the 72 from Sun Valley. I have a white 69 chev pick up (not on the road) so relate to the 72 when you are racing. Also have a 76 been working on for awhile and getting close to being on the road. Will look for you both at the track, hope to meet up with you one day. This is a great site for info, would like to meet up with some of the other site members also. Take care, Eric...

I would concur.  Bend would be a longish day's drive or two really easy days.  The people are awesome - especially those from the Pacific Northwest.
