Thanks for the calendar, there's another local cruise night just a couple of
blocks from where this one tonight was held. So I'll be there. the folks
that put this one on announced that there is another one tomorrow night, I
believe he said, up in Draper.

I did like the chopped top of the Chevy and the pin stripping.

Thanks for the correction.
