Wow! Been a helluva day! Started cruising about 10am. Went to Cruise Central (Gulfport VA Center) and turned in our registration cards. Walked around checking out the cars, spotted a couple more Mavericks. Then...THERE IT WAS!!! The 71 Comet GT that was built by Jamie Miles dad several years ago! Wow! It is so hard to believe that a paint job could still look that good after all these years!!! I introduced myself to the new owner, Mr Joel Garrett. Joel is one cool dude! And this car will be well preserved as long as he owns it. I'll just warn you right now, if you look like you're going to touch his car...get ready for an evil eye! And if you actually DO touch it...BIG trouble!!! Joel will take care of the situation real quick. I like this guy. Matter of fact, my friend and I spent the rest of the afternoon with Joel and his wife. We drove our cars to Long Beach Ms., lined up in the parade route so we could drive in it. I was told there was about 500 cars in the parade alone. We ended up at the Long Beach harbor where the parade ended. The Tip Tops were playing and sounded great. I'll tell you for certain both our cars got a tremendous amount of attention in the parade. I finally got wore down and had to head home for a little rest. Plan on meeting back up with Joel again tomorrow. Oh, Jamies dad is suppose to come down Friday to visit Joel and reunite with his long lost car. That will be a cool reunion. I will tell you one thing for sure. Mr Miles did one heck of a job building this car. I was very very impressed with the workmanship that went into this build. Beautiful Job!!!
