Everything went well.  Pictures to follow.

Poor poor Freddies Car could not keep with with the Cougar on a big hill and it's 4" thick radiator and cross drilled disk brakes in 90+ degree weather.  :-[
The 5.4 swap has been called a bad idea, and considered an underpowered considerable waste of time, since 2007.

Nice to see that most donít think that anymore.

The only downfall to the cruise was the unexpected heat, one of the cars with outside temp. gauge read 116 deg :hide: Weather people called for mild temps. with chance of rain. Nice to see :miller: and :freddie: come up and represent the ECRT  :afto2: and provide the nice cruise magnets. 

The Longest distance award should have gone to Jerry M. who again traveled up from North Carolina  in his Gray lsc se Mark 7:bow1: but didn't think it was fair take another trophy. So it went to :moe: Dancy who drove from outside Philly. just edging out Freedie.

The Back Road Classics Car Club took the club participation award congrats guys :clap:

Hot, Hot, DARN HOT! Yes it was, but us die-hards hung in there and as usual, made the best of it!
A fine job ya did Jeff, and was good to see the Folks I had just met at the last Cruise and to meet a couple of new 1's .
Good pics you've posted Mr :miller:, and here is a link to a couple more that I managed to get! http://s158.photobucket.com/albums/t119/Schmodie_Photos/The%2008%20Season/Cruises/Red%20Robin%202/

 Also I dont know if anyone but Jeff knew or not, but I helped a friend put together a 20 Mile Parade / Cruise  Fundraiser, for a local 4 yr old boy with cancer. We had a great time and we left our starting point ( with Jeff in tow) with 228 cars, aprox 35 Bikes & 12 Trailerless Tractors. We Arrived 20 miles later at Johnny Rockets on Montage Mountain, after pickin up a few along the way, who joined in transit because of the heat, with a Whopping 550 + !!
 I think we did good !! lol

Here are 3 links to the albums that are together so far, with more to come hopefully!
 I will be adding a Feature page on my site soon!

To me it kind of looks like a 50's Plymouth.
