    First of all "Wow"...........and the crazy thing is, look at the Mike Bishop book " How to build a traditional hotrod" and that is the same shop back in the 90's...........Wow.......the hotrod guys are a bunch of collectors.

    Jeez, must come from too many hours of ingesting cast-iron dust on the porting bench or maybe it's just my advanced years catching up, but I'm missing the point here. It's not nice to fool old guys, in case you didn't know.:D

    I had the best time there, the Tardels are such great hosts:)
    the place is so amazing, it just too hard to describe with mere words, this place needs to be experienced to be appreciated.
    Thanks keith for lookin at my flattie and given her a lil timing adjustment, made it home very well with no over heating issues!

    what a fun time... I got some pretty amazin pics there yesterday at the ranch.

    Zip -- Let me know what you find out; I'm puzzled as well. Might be a secret handshake sort of deal . . .

    "EAT BEEF" and underneath does it say "Kansas Livestock Association"? It may be from our own Kansas City HAMBer Sodbuster...it's his calling card of sorts. LOL.
