    Hershey update
    Made the first Hershey with the Jetfire. It was a blast!! Had judges stopping all day thanking us for bringing the car. Few hundred people stopped also. Most had never seen one before. The car was a big hit! I will let you know how we made out with the judging. Takes a few weeks but the car is not done. Drove over 600 miles no problem! Had a few people stop that had been following the progress on the AACA website blog I have going.
    Thanks to all
    Ken

    Ken, good for you and your “new to the road” turborocket! We all appreciate our own work and it is really an added bonus when others do too, especially car show judges! Congratulations, looking good, nice work.
