*Virginia legislation (H.B. 288) that threatened to restrict pleasure driving of antique motor
  vehicles to a range not more than 50 miles from the owner’s residence has been withdrawn by
  the bill’s sponsor.  The bill also sought to clarify that antique vehicles may not be used for work-
  related travel, while legislators considered including antique cars in the state’s mandatory annual
  safety inspection program, claiming that many are unsafe “junkers.”  (Jason Tolleson)
*Die-cast and Model car, truck or bike building professionals will be at Autobooks/Aerobooks,
  March 4, 8am-3pm, 3524 W. Magnolia Blvd, Burbank, CA.  Herb Deeks, Smith Brothers

*This past weekend Linda and I went to see the movie "The World's Fastest Indian."  Linda
  didn't know exactly what she was being lured into (a motorcycle movie!), but came away feeling
  it was two hours very well spent. It is a delightful movie with delightful characters and a delightful
  ending.  And a True Story.  No violence, no helicopters, no shoot 'em up, and no sneaky bad
  guys.  If Anthony Hopkins (aka Hannibal the Cannibal) does not win an Academy Award for
  his performance, the Academy should close up shop. Go see it in the theater if you can as I doubt
  that a later DVD will do the production justice.  I guarantee you will love this movie whether you
  are a car nut or not.  Don and Linda Holle
