I sent Steve an e-mail about the V8 convention almost a week ago, & have never received a reply.

I have some concerns that there will be a convention.

Steve doesn't spend much time on a computer (probably why he gets a lot more done than I do). He will be posting an update here (there WILL be a convention).

jim, plan on making the trip even if the v8 club doesn't get a convention together. john twists summer party is at the hotel across the highway and i am planning on taking my mga v6 so i can attend both functions, twists should be a good time anyway, hope to see you there. jim
