Didn't go up to Auburn, the racers passed right in front of my house. I'll edit the pictures I took and post the better ones. Guess I had a grin from ear to ear watching these come down the road. wife was just out on the porch and said they are still going by. So far I've seen only one T, but plenty of old cars.

The Camaro yellow 1930 Model A huckster in last photo is #101!

Driven by Perry Swanson from Douglas,Ga, I was to be navigator! Had to bail out Father's day with med issue, was in hosp on Fri before the start! :-(

But good news I am doing good, (my fuel tank had a clog in the line) and Perry got his son, Nat to fly in and become last minute Naviagtor.

Have been following the race on Great Race Facebook page, they are doing well....are now in the top 11 rookies and going and going. The A got an oil change at Auburn and he has topped off the radiator twice, but that is all! Old Ford's rule!

My neighbors son-in-law did that with his new toy, one of those new Dodges. Not the first time that was done. Did it several years ago with a vette, red line down the road and limped back.

On Friday, I passed a couple of the Great Race cars on US-23 south of Flint, MI. On Saturday, I threw a battery in my convertible and drove into Glennie for gas.



I found myself in the middle of the Great Race and even got photographed as I hurried home. I grabbed my nephew who is also off this week along with chairs and a cooler.










We sat in the driveway for quite a while. After explaining to my nephew the significance of the race, I called my brother and son to tell them how bad they messed up by not being here.

Unfortunately, I didn't have internet access today and I really hope they come through with rural internetification.

Even though I drove 200 miles and found myself with the wrong timing cover seal and a missing drain plug off my NH, there were plenty of car things to do.
