Condolences

Former KARC member Sandy Scott passed away. Please keep Carl and family in your prayers. She was always a joy to talk with.

 

Well Wishes

KARC member Dewayne Bowen fell and broke his shoulder. He’s re-cooperating at home.

 

Phil Price also fell and stoved up his arm and hip. No breaks, just a temporary splint and bruises.

 

Prayers for a speedy recovery for both.

 

Member Machines and Gossip

(Thanks to Dick for the following)

 

Bruce Roberts, Perry Stapleton, Buckshot Elliott, Mike Smith, Freddy Collins, Gary Price, David Baker, Jerry Collins and Tim Hammond attended the NSRA Nationals in Louisville (sorry if I missed anyone). In a nutshell: the weather is beautiful, attendance is good, very few vendors inside and a flea market stocked with stuff people haven't been able to sell anywhere else.

 

Stan Bledsoe is now the proud owner of a beautiful 1965 Ford pickup. It is sporting a 351 Cleveland engine, automatic overdrive and a 10 foot deep blue paint job.

 

As was pointed out in the July news latter, we need to try to find an acceptable place to have our meetings. Any and all suggestions will be greatly appreciated. I (Dick) have been having informal gatherings that are not club related at my shop. Due to the recent upsurge in the virus I will NOT be having a gathering this month (August). If things look better next month, I will resume these gatherings in September. I don't want our club, or any of our members to be another virus casualty.

 

A little more news, from Louisville. There were no major malfunctions. Just a serpentine belt that wants to walk off a pulley. The weather was as good as it gets, well no even better. In the mornings and evenings one member needed a jacket to stay warm. Of course, tall tales were non-stop. The weather and the people made it a most enjoyable event.

 

A jacket, in Louisville, in August…what in the world?
