Dave, That will be a great TOUR, I really want to make it but with a Football Sophmore player I am not sure if it will work but I can vouch for anyone that is thinking about it to do this tour!

Gene thanks for the response. Do you still have the picture of your torpedo sitting near the top of Rabbit Ears Pass? I used it for many years, advertising tours but when I bought a new computer with the dam windows 7 Your picture plus a lot of other information disappeared. If you still have the picture of your torpedo could you send it to me.

I will try and show a picture of Gene Corrother's torpedo near the top of Rabbit Ears Pass above Steamboat valley. I don't do very well on computers but will try.

Sorry we can't make it this year. We will be visiting Yellowstone and Colorado in a modern car with my sister and her husband. Plan to make it with you next year.

This is our car at Rabbit Ears pass last year.

This was ours in 2007.



I will be sure to let my sister know about the tour. She will most probably be in Steamboat then and her daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren live there. I will tell them to drop by and say hello. Maybe someone can give my great-nephews a ride in a T... :-)

Dick, I would be glad to arrange a ride for your great-nephews. I often have out of state walk ins at my shop and I try to always give them a ride to Town in one of my Ts for coffee or lunch. They are often amazed at the Ruckstells if they don't have them in their cars at home. they are also often surprised in the winter at how good the side curtains work.

Dave, I don't remember the exact number of cars on the 2007 tour, but I do know that there were three of us who didn't have Ruckstells. It took me a good half hour to get from Steamboat to the top of Rabbit Ears Pass. I did stop a few times to let things cool down and to give my leg a rest.

Dick Lodge, There were 85 cars on the 2007 tour. I believe that was the tour that my oldest boy threw a fan blade through the top tank on his radiator of his Center Door. When we got to Saratoga Wyoming he took the radiator off and soldered it and its still holding to this day. He soldered the radiator on the front lawn of the main motel in Saratoga and the tourist all gathered around to watch him and could not believe what T people will do to keep going on a tour.
I think I have a picture of him on Cameron Pass checking his water.

The picture above was not my oldest boy, Ken. I don't know were the picture of him checking his water in his center door went? He is in the read roadster pickup in front on a different Leaf Peeper Tour. I will try a different picture of him at the Cameron Pass Sign.

I meant to say Ken was in his RED roadster, not is center door. I believe this was taken on an earlier Leaf Peeper Tour before the one in 8007. It looks like we are going to have more HCCA guys on the tour than MTFA guys.
This picture was not taken on a Leaf Peeper Tour. Ken and I were on a private drive. We pulled off the road to take a picture of the Peak just before the top of Cameron Pass on the East Side.
