Rambler Ranch Tour/Eagle Motel 2012
« on: October 12, 2012, 07:30:05 PM »
It's underway. I arrived at the Ranch a little before 10am and Dave (vangremlin), Shane (Shanebo) and Ralph (eaglebeek) arrived soon after. We got shanghied into washaing a few of Terry's cars. R Mick, Turbo Gremlin, Rollguy and Strike Eagle arrived shortly after. We all did our own tour of the Ranch and went to lunch around 12. Had a good time. Terry is such a generous guy. I won't go on the cruise tomorrow, but will meet up with the group at the hotel late afternoon. Here are a few teaser pics. I've got a bunch more, but probably won't post them for a couple days.

Today was a great start to the weekend.  Eaglefreek had to hit the road early, Shanebo, Rollguy, Eaglebeek and I stuck around, some of us until almost 6 checking out all the things to see at the Ranch.  I'll be posting more pictures after the cruise on Sunday.

I made it there Saturday a little before 6 PM, just before leaving for the German restaurant. Great group of people and had a great time. Here's Rich (rollguy) and Shanebo's wife enjoying "Beer Barrel Polka". Roll out the barrel........

That is an excellent article.  Thanks for posting it.  It's gratifying to read something about Eagles written by a true car guy who knows whereof he speaks.

I finally get a chance to add some photos!  It only took buying a new computer and uploading programs (apps) for hours.  I can now access my photobucket, so here they are:

Our Eagle and I were at the back of the line. Whether seen in the mirror or through the windshield an uninterrupted line of Eagles is an image worthy of appreciation. Thanks for posting the pictures. :eagle:
