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. www.emorymotorsports.com/emory-campout/ 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.
