    Changing the subject a bit, Teddy...I found those rear aluminum floor plates if you still want them for your MINI. They are now in my S and I'll give them to you at Fontana, ok?

    Not a problem. I may bring the front ones down and put them on Way's table for sale as I no longer use them.

    Just don't forget about them and leave them on the table too long. If you don't pick them up before they pack up shop you'll never see them again. I found that out last year when I forgot to pick up a new car cover and a couple other parts that I tried to sell. My fault for forgetting. I called Way and they said if it was left they didn't do anything with it. Said to call Fontana Lodge. That was a waste of time.

    A few years back, I sold some stuff on Way's table an but had to return to pick up some items that didn't sell. It was early in the morning when I returned and there were a few other people there, who drifted off when I walked in. Tthey had been taking stuff that was leftover and I guess I caught them in the act. Fortunately, my crapola was still there....LOL, but I noticed some items that I could use [the had the owner's name/addy on them], so I took them and notified the owner that I had them and would pay what he was asking. He notified me that I was an honest guy, since he had left Fontana during the evening for his home and had forgotten to reclaim them from the table.

    I don't think Way was involved in the taking of leftover stuff. However, there are lots of Fontana "maintenance" employees who are there round the clock. Calling Fontana Lodge WAS useless, because their supervisory staff is not working 24/7 [just the phone operators are] and so, the guilty party got away Scot free.

    I agree. I wasn't implying that it was Way's fault. Yeah, I had my name and address on there along with a note that I was in the NAM tent also. Lesson learned.

    I lost a brand new set of floormats a couple of years ago. Went back to get them...and they were gone.

    A problem. I stay at the Tuskeegee Motor Inn at the Dragon...for the last 4 years. They haven't been answering their phone and Dick S. drove by and said it didn't look open. A little more checking and I found out the motel has changed hands and no one seems to know if it will open this year. The motel has not answered emails or messages. What a bitch....

    That really sucks on 2 counts, Teddy. See if Dave.O can hook you up with thhe Modfather [aka Dick]. He lives near Robbinsville and could perhaps find something for you.

    Good. Fontana does have single rooms. How long will you be staying this time?
