Jim, wow, I wasn't aware you acquired this thing! I might have some more parts that could be of use to you. I may also be able to lend a little bit of time for "graphic arts" and such. Drop me a line if you need some help.

Very cool. Please put me on your list of parts runners if you find something you want in eastern NC. I'll be more than happy to pick up parts for you that you might find in my area. Sweet!

Congratulations to you for all of your incredible finds including Perl. I'm not sure what I could do beside turning a wrench or two but if the opportunity ever presents itself, I would be honored.

Jim, nice find. Really nice. Let me know if you think the non-profit status might be useful. I may be able to help with that.

Thanks Mark! To see you talent, all I have to do is look at my wallpaper of your race car. Badass.

Bulvot, Awesome and thanks! We'll have to talk further offline. I'll ring you.

Thanks man! You should come up next year for the "Down on the Farm" party next spring.
We will be doing CIS tuning then. Just buttoned up most of the fuel delivery system on #6.

Thanks for the offer! I believe I'll be staying away from 501C3, as I prefer to maintain ownership in the vehicle.

Default Update on committee applications

Thanks for all who responed offline with a level of interest in this project!

Unfortunately, response has been lackluster, and we are still quite far away from getting together enough people to make this happen.

Now's the time to step if you haven't already.

If you are on the fence for whatever reason and need questions answered, contact me offline and I'll do me best to respond.

Thanks again, everyone!

Jim, what would you estimate the value will be for #1 when restoration is complete?
