Just wanted to give a big shout-out to the Schley brothers for hosting a beautiful memorial in honor of Ken and Dean Lowry yesterday.  My feelings are hard to put to words... suffice it to say that it was a very heartwarming experience and a truly special afternoon.  Many thanks.

Plenty of cool cars to check out, too....  Steve Beecher drove over in his '32 Ford Roadster and Jim Holmes in his beautiful 911.

Great shots, looks like it was a really nice day. Only making the urge to be out of the garage stronger!

Schleys' place looks like a great spot to be remembered. If only we all could be so lucky someday!  Cool
