Thanks for the warning. I'm about 180 miles east of you so maybe I should expect some bad weather heading my way. I'd better be sure the Chevelle is in the garage and the truck windows are up.

I was just watching that mess from a couple of hours ago from the Sutherlands on Denton Highway. The radar showed a line of thunderstorms right on the Dallas/Tarrant county line, and just south of DFW airport. You weren't at Bartley's in Grapevine by any chance, were you?

That was the Opal Jennings benefit show. E-mail me next time before you show your car. I'll make it a point to come check it out.
The sheetmetal on the older cars is made from a heavier gauge than newer cars. That's probably what saved you.

John, my 70 was caught in several hail storms and never got hurt, a friends Camry sitting right next to it looked like it had been attacked by a hammer. GM used to put some steel in them back then.

Oh Randy Randy my friend, i wasn't showing it just looking around (not even near show quality and may never be since it's a daily driver) but i did have a lot of people looking at it, in the parking lot behind the show and compliments. Damn that makes me feel good
sad to say the show was small as can be, too bad for Opal's family i thought it would be at least good size for her benefit
