The last day the rain reappeared,
but since the only activity was a
farewell breakfast it really didn’t in-
terfere with anything except for a few
white knuckle moments on the drive
home. All things considered, it was a
very enjoyable event.
To again paraphrase Charles
Dickens, the two events could be char-
acterized as the best of times and the
worst of times. It was the worst of
times because the weather really
didn’t cooperate. The Roundup Meet
participants endured sweltering heat
and the worst fire year in Washington
State’s history (Interstate 90 was
closed by wildfires on our trip home).
The I.M.M. attendees, on the other
hand, suffered through the rain, wind
It was the best of times in that
there were numerous beautiful and
unique automobiles to inspect, along
with a variety activities and, as al-
ways, excellent camaraderie. I would
encourage Shelby owners to partici-
pate in one of these meets, especially
owners of early Shelby Mustangs.
Even though it might be a long trip, it
is important to display these histori-
cally significant automobiles.
