This is my badge from this meet back in 1979. The same week, I purchased my Arnolt-MG and drove it around the Detroit area, visiting friends and seeing what might break before driving back to TN. (Yes, a couple things did, and were repaired). Was anyone in this group there? Karl?

I keep forgetting Albert's so young!  🙄 

Harvey - I was a member but never went to a convention!  I don't think I had my driving license then anyway (just kidding!)  😎

@karl If memory serves, I think Pete Foss organized this without the full blessing of the MCCA and got his hand slapped for it. It was this meet where I came away with a lot of nice Teknos.

Now, that a name from the past - Pete Foss was on this previous forum for a while before he retired to Florida.  I have not heard from him in years. 

Again, you beat me to the bunch all over the US back then!   You dog you! 🤨 I am off to the archives to see if i kept any of the MCCA newsletters.

@karl I thought Pete moved to Sacramento?

I am sure there was a notification on the previous forum that Pete Foss had died.

Unfortunately, without access to this one cannot check.

I think he was in his early 90s when he was still writing on the board. And this was a good 7-8 years ago.

Yes, you are right.
