Tucker had a flat six Lycoming engine, but Tatra had their own air-cooled V-8.

The coolest hings I ever saw was Ron Courtney's X-51's taillights reflecting off the rainy street of McMinnville, OR, enroute to the A&W.

Do you know the history of Gary Emory at Eola Viillage? He quit out of the NW Porsche dealer chain with a barnload of parts. Every year they had a Porsche camp-out and they let the VW folk in on Sundays. He ran a full restoration shop. People would fly in from all over the country and drive out in their Porsche. His father was Neil Emory, and had Valley Custom in California in the 1950s.

Best thing I ever saw there (2 years in a row) was a showroom-fresh unrestored 1954 VW 23-window bus, Chestnut Brown over Sealing Wax Red. The interior was unbelievable and it was right-hand drive.
