We left yesterday morning for the Grand Indiana Tour, and are driving our '35 Speedster there and back. The tour is based in New Castle,In at the Raintree Inn. There should be around 50 cars. "the trailer trash""Tom & Kay Mitzler, Jack and Lucy Laughlin, and Herb & Judy Montgomery will on the tour with us. It is going to be hot this week...95.
We were among the first to arrive last night about 5:30. We are looking forward to a great tour.
I just got my speedometer back from the repair shop. It worked good for the first two hundred miles, but then it suddenly "lost it's mind". Guess we will have to rely on the Garmin for the speed.

Mike,

Good luck on the tour, this sounds like a short one by your standards.

Been having similar speedo problems. This year's reunion will be my second with the Garmin.

Today was first real day of the tour. We went to a car collection tonight and had the opening dinner there. We got caught in a rain storm on the way back. We pulled off and got our top up before the rain started, however we were lucky...It poured a short distance up the road. Several in our group pulled off the road because it was raining so hard they couldn't see.

At least the temperature dropped a little. It was 95 and very humid before the rain. We are assured that it will more like 85 tommorrow.

We are back home tonight. Got in about 9:15PM. 880 miles with no problems.
There were two other Auburns on the tour. Jack Laughlin with a 1931 Auburn Brougham and Tom Metzler with a 1935 Auburn Cab. We had a great time as always. Those of you who don't tour are missing out.
CORDially Mike
