    "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.

    The scooter was just cool.

    The school zone sign was probably less creepy before it developed that patina.

    Everything else is just a delight to the eyes.

    I bet the 32 roadster is a stock 32 color, and I'd even lay money on the 39 Merc being a stock Merc color.

    Killer looking truck there; very, very nice indeed. Nice to have so much tasty eye candy around while you are slaving away (and I'm not talking about Jay).

    Super stuff, although I am sorry to hear the havoc the flathead took. The new crank will be excellent. Jay's rag top is so sweet, as is all the stuff. Thanx for taking us along dudes. ~sololobo~
