Well deserved honor - you've got a really nice '78 there, and you're a great addition to the club. You keep the flames of the mighty TA burnin' bright!

OMG I am speachless! 

BRETT!  I thank you and anyone else that had a hand in this, from the bottom of my heart.  The story is great.  I feel guilty now, that the TA is not under the carport! lol  We'll have to do something about that!

I am honored!  Thank you all for your kind words, support and wisdom.

The funny thing is, that I didn't even realize that our car made the spotlight!  I was so used to seeing the black one there, that it didn't even dawn on me that our's was up there! LOL


AGAIN, THANK YOU!  You have made my year!

P.S.  Yes, Frank is working real hard on getting this car back to orginal.  Little by little she will be done!
Hope to see you all at the Nat's!!
