Nathan Manning and I met in Pulaski Tennessee for a car show this weekend. We both placed in our respective classes, (I placed behind a '70 Challenger and a very nice '55 C300) and we also won trophies for greatest distance driven. (Me for stock, Nathan for modified.) I drove 168 miles one way with my original 354 poly and cast iron torqueflite; Nathan drove 300+ with a 350 and "modern" automatic behind his 57 bowtie.

I should perhaps add that I only drove the "bowtie" because I didn't want to compete against "Uncle Mike."

I figure anyone who drives 168 miles to a car show should be recognized... and I didn't wanna steal his thunder by rollin' in there with another original car from nearly twice that distance.

Plus, there was no "Fourth Place" in the MoPar category, so it would've only added insult to injury if my old 4-door had whup'd-ass on McKenna's high-class ride.

(The bowtie, however... makes Mike's car look more respectable. After all, Chrysler DID have the Car O' The Year back in '57!)

Manning's just jealous that he doesn't own a Motor Trend Car of the Year....
