Dang! I gotta miss it. My son's first birthday is the 26th, and we're having a party at 1pm, down here in Lincoln.

Besides, I'm ashamed to admit, that not one of my subaru's is currently road worthy. I haven't finished reinstalling the engine in the 86 XT, the 85 XT's engine is still in pieces, awaiting the funds to fill it with hi performance goodies. Both 80 BRATs have front end damage, and the 86 BRAT needs a clutch, half-shafts and the clutch pedal fixed.

If anybody needs 80's wagon parts feel free to let me know while yer in the area. I have an 82 2wd auto, and a 79 4wd 4sp, for parts, plus an 81 2wd auto that needs head gaskets. Plus, I have asorted other early 80's parts, including a couple of 1600cc engines. If anybody is still in town on Sunday and wants to look through the pile, let me know in e-mail how I can get ahold of you, or, if the guy from Omaha wants, I can give him my cell number, to give out at the meet.

I really hope I'll be able to attend the next Midwest gathering, in one of my soobs...

Home safely and in one piece.

DAMN Sube sure is tired. Special thanks to Indy and Mick's R/C Brat for wearing him out but good.

Come to think of it I am tired too, been up since 4:45AM on the 26th and its 12:45AM now. EEEK!

Off to bed. Tomorrow morning I am going to write down the names of all the people I forgot to tell about this to. At least 3 other Brat owners I forgot to inform. Amazing what a large circle of friends you come up with that are Subaru owners....after a meet.

Thanks for a good time guys/gals, hope we can do this again and with a few more folks next time too!
