    is tentatively scheduled for next Monday, assuming I can find an internet connection.

    •  Hope so. I would love to use your stories at the (5+ / 0-)

      GrandNASHional Banquet on the screen. The Walbash Valley Region is the Host this year.

      Where is the museum where the Jettery Automobile you picture housed?  There are some early Nashs at the Hartford Museum in Hartford, Michigan.

      I think a 1908 Nash is the earliest Nash I've seen driven to a yearly GransNASHional Meet, but other early cars and related things, like the Gormully/Ramble bike, have been displayed.  I don't know what to expect this year, but hosting the Car Show in the Mid West usually gets more old cars than years when the GrandNASHional Car Show is on either coast.  We are expecting about 100 Nash's at the Houston Woods Meet. Judging is done by people's choice ballot, so 100 point restorations aren't expected and special favor is given by cars driven in (not trailered).  The latest recognized will be early Metropolitians which still carried the Nash emblem. Driving our 1972 Rambler will be considered "driving modern."

      include the Nash-Healey? If only they had convinced Donald Healey to hang on a little longer and had supplied the 327 cu in V8 under development to him, the Corvette may have been a second-place American sports car in the fifties.
