Will be leaving for Houston either today or tomorrow. Depends on the servicing and packing. I will be timing the 1/2 mile event at Ellington Field Areos and Autos May 16th. This is only a one day event, a lot of driving for a single day work.

Stopping in Las Vegas on the way there, After the event, we have no plans on out return. We may tour thru Texas again as it has a lot of great places in the Big Bend Country area.

I am approaching 250K miles on the Breakaway so I did a fairly comprehensive service. Also notice a little uneven wear on the front tires (outside tread wearing faster than the inside) so I decreased the toe-in slightly.

We just doubled the welding shop, rebuilt and added another tubing bender and restocked stainless tube, sheet and exhaust stocks. Upholstery is humming along and if you have the time or need any repairs/alterations call me. Call even if you don't, it will be good to see you again!

Thanks Tom, I will certainly call you as I will have some free time and maybe we can arrange a GTG. Your shop is fairly close to Ellington Field, right?

Yes, right off the SH-146 freeway about 8 miles north and east.
While you are suffering in CA of drought we have accumulated about 18 inches of rain since Jan. on about a three day cycle. You may need an umbrella while you are here.
