Wow, what can I say, I will hope for the best!!!!!

As Byron said, as a collective group we can do a LOT.

Andy and I re-did my Dad's 1978 Nissan camper truck into some hand control's and put the throttle ( in his case ) on the left side of the foot well. I have a "Brodie Knob" if you need/want one I would gladly donate for the steering wheel.

Then we put an automatic in...which is still going to this day, as my Aunt now has his truck in Winnipeg.

No day yet, I am flexible, depends on the weather...which at this point, looks like we head into a cooling thing with rain predicted on Saturday and showers Sunday.

Must be 100% NICE!!!!

The weather is looking be be bad by Sat/Sun, no where near 100% nice. I will make the call tomorrow night so we all can get on with alternate plans for the weekend.

We will shoot for the following weekend, June 18/19.

It is saying 80% up here for both days this weekend. I also have a list of things to do on the car so I can get them done this weekend. My tach has been going bonkers. I'm going to pull the wiring for it and start from scratch with it. My engine also ate a valve seal spring so those are getting replace next week.
If no one from the future comes back to stop you from doing it then how bad of a decision can it really be?

I'm making the call now that we will postpone till next weekend, as it still calls for rain and/or showers.

That way we can all plan for the weekend now.

HHmmm..as I kinda had the weekend booked off..if the weather looks good I will bring the 510!

A certain members car is featured...who is rumored to maybe bring it out soon!!!!

This would have been taken in the late 90's or early 2000. The wagon is Spencer's VG powered one.

If the weather is nice would you consider bringing your car?

I like to keep people guessing....

It looks to be raining very hard out the valley so we made a good call.....this statement applies to the drive to Hells Gate.

In regards to the Steveston car show, I will be up early tomorrow morning and see what the weather is doing, as I will go if it is dry.

So that Cam is not confused :lol: ..this discussion is TOTALLY back to the Spring Drive..To Hells Gate...On..

SUNDAY June 19th, which is Father's Day. Seems the consensus of at least two people is that Sunday would work...and...the long range looks really good for Sunday! I am cooking dinner..go figure...but, I think we can do this and all be home at a reasonable time in the afternoon.

Plan would be the same..meet between 9:00 am and 10:00 Am at the Hope Chevron, do the 1/2 hour drive to Hell's gate, tour, etc., be back to cars by 12:00 to 1:00, and then work our way back to our home bases.

Hell's Gate is 22.00 for an adult. There is a cafe there so maybe would could grab lunch there, that would be perfect.
