New guy from Irving

Tell us a little about yourself and say hello to the gang. We would like to hear about who, what, and why you ride as well as how you found us.

Welcome!

Yes. They got all the cars out. I think 3 won't be restored, but they have to fill in the hole. You can buy jars of the dirt....

I'll bet this is one of the ones that won't be restored. See the workers in the background? That's where the hole is.

I have no idea why the upper left corner of the picture got cut off.

Looks like you were standing behind a wall or partition of some kind...you can see the shadow on the guard rail.

Welcome!

Did you do the factory tour? I rode through Bowling Green on a vacation last year and toured both the factory and the museum. I enjoyed the factory tour a lot more.

I didn't tour the factory. That would have been cool. By the time I got out of the museum, the sun was beginning to set (and I'm sure the factory tours were over). Had I not spent so much time at Barber (Birmingham) that morning and had I not gotten stuck in traffic in Nashville, I probably could have had time. Oh well.

It was a memorable trip. I got to see a lot. The top pic is Nashville. The bottom one is Birmingham.
