              I think its a pretty good way to break up the winter blues and get to talk and meet fellow gearheads. I think it its cool seeing some of these cars in the "build" stage because it gives you an idea of how the guy down the road does things.

              Fort Dodge,IA has a garage tour coming up and also Sioux City ,IA.
              I haven't been to the one in Sioux City yet but from what I hear its worth the trip. Nice shops and something about soap box derby cars.
              I will have to get the dates and post them up here.

                Jeff, let me know the dates and places. I am real close to Sioux City but have never heard of any tours there. You are right it really breaks up the winter blues!! Not to mention a good reason to hang out with your buddies 8)
