Dude Tour XI in the Bag!
« on: August 20, 2021, 03:53:43 PM »
So last weekend I spent Friday night and all Saturday getting my '69 Chevelle back together after a full dash dismantle to replace the firewall padding along with a new copper/brass heater core. Sunday, Monday, Tuesday was our Dude Tour XI. We drove about 700 miles through Mt. Rainier National Park, backside of Mt. St. Helens, and around roads in Oregon and Washington along the Columbia River. My 16 year old son came with me and got to ride in a '91 Porsche 964 turbo, 1979 Corvette, a MR2, and my buddies 1959 Austin Healey Bug-Eye Sprite that is powered by a Mazda 13B rotary. He also rode in my Chevelle of course and I finally let him drive it a little. He wants to drive his Corvette next year. We shall see.

It was a little bit of a smaller crew this year as we only had about 14 cars. Didn't take a lot of pictures, but here are some:

1987 C4 that is painted like a Grand Sport. Low mileage one owner. Traded it in to the dealer for a new Vette. I tried to sell him on a slightly more expensive C3, but he liked the C4. They will definitely go up in value and become more collectible.
