Just recieved this note, so mark your calanders people................

The plans for the Jensen Nationals East are starting to come together. As

was stated last year, it will be in Springfield Illinois. An easy to get to

small city that is the capital of Illinois. Much history and many Abraham

Lincoln sites including the new Lincoln Museum.

The event will be June 7-10 staying a the Ramada Limited. We expect room

prices to be small city priced in the range of $75.00 per night. This is

still being negotiated.

We will keep you informed as plans come together.

Please feel free to forward this to other Jensen owners since we have not

yet received the list from last year's event.

John, I believe all who were there for the 2005 Philly Funkhana would attest that you can be bought, it was that raising your pants leg and winking at all the Jensen driver's that gave you away .................... hee hee hee :>)

Seriously, do you have your car back yet and how has it turned out, any pict's.

If your driving out to Springfield next year with it, come thru upstate NY and  maybe we can get a caravan going, there's a bunch of people that come to mind if they went would be driving close by, Mitch Ware, Tim Knowlton, Jeff and Laura Peterson just to name a few ...................... and getting there is half the fun.

Good to hear from you John (lets see some Pict's)
