I stopped in Ventura for a quick visit with my sister and family, and then headed east on 126. As usual, the mid-year meet was held in Fillmore, CA, which is a tiny burg about halfway between Ventura and I5. I got into town around midnight, pulled into the empty lot behind a big grocery store and hunkered down in the back of the pickup for the night. The packing blanket kept me plenty warm, and the thought that I was saving $80 on a hotel kept me even warmer.
By the time I rolled up there were already 10 cars on the grass- a better turnout than we've ever had for the Spring meet. Best of all, nearly half the cars were new to me! I offered to help with set-up, but pretty much everything was already done and club Pres Rick Alexander was already busy unloading his wares for the swap meet. I quickly relieved him of two interior windshield brackets and a turn signal switch that I needed for the wagon.
Etceterini.com, odds are that Jarl has owned one at some point or another.
sat disassembled in a Sacto garage for 46 years. Their wagon won Best of Show their first time out, and this F-O-R looks like it could be a contender, too.
