The Maiden Voyage
I want to give a special thanks to Meatball for all the time and effort he put into the Slow Poke to get it running and finished. Also, a huge thanks to Dennis, Victor, and Lucky who served as my volunteer cleaning crew on Thursday. She rides really smoothly but we still have to sort out a couple of carb issues and wire the lights!
This picture was from set-up day and you can see the white rocks in the background I had planned on using but decided to go with the blanket because of the near perfect color match! Thanks to Lucky for the use of his awesome vintage cartoon snail planter!

The Slow Poke came up short at the GNRS coming in second place in a category of two. Such is life at a snail's pace!
