Default The Flathead Rebuild: Part 2

"Working on the ranch with your best pals on a Tuesday afternoon? Not me. We laughed more than we probably should have." (Ryan)

We all do things that take years off our life, work to hard, go to fast, ETC; What you are doing is adding years to your life. In that setting you cannot laugh too much. It is healing. Enjoy your time to the fullest.

That has the sounds of what is going to be a great and memorable week that you guys will talk about for years to come. And it looks like that engine will have plenty of poke when it is back in the car and running.

Yeah, I'd just hate to be there today at Tardel's, cleaning parts, scaping grease..."oh please, Brer Fox, whatever you do, don't throw me in that briar patch."

Love the posts this week, hope you can find time for more.
