    Mid-America motorworks in Effingham

    I drove past MAM yesterday. Most of the property is now tilled and in crops. MAM signage is all gone except on the museum building. One small area on the south side is mowed and has the flags.. Everything runs it’s course. It was fun to be a part of it all once upon a time.

    Caddy "Super Cruise"

    I now have a CT6 with Supercruise. After 16 years, I sent my aging STS on to used car heaven and replaced it. It's nice to be back in something that is quiet, smooth and updated. It was a nightmare getting Onstar sorted out and delivering the proper data. That now behind me, I use...

    I had to run past Mid America to pick up parts this afternoon. Lots of activity. Even though the show is a couple of days away, I spotted many corvettes. Thew Lingafelter rig was pulling in as I passed. Made me think of our Bobfest events! Bob

    Ruthanne's Husband Ray has passed.

    At Rendezvous I there was a guy from Ohio known as Doc Rupp. He had a '06 infra red V. I ended up with the induction system that he put together. We corresponded on occasion, then it stopped. I finally contacted a man that also knew him and he confirmed that he had passed. He also was big...

    Mid America 2015

    The show had perfect weather. Many groups of Corvettes were seen running around. I was in no shape to watch anything. My back surgery was performed last Tuesday and I have been dealing with that. Lots of sleep and rest. Many well wishes from our XLR friends. Thank you all for them. Bob
