In the meantime I recently purchased Butch Leal's...
I found this picture in that same last batch. My Dad was a Parts Manager at a John Deere
dealership back in the 50's and he built this electric...
My Grandfather won that one!
Some guy he worked with wanted it for his kids and we had the gas powered "real deal" so he sold it to him.
I love it!
He's 84 now and still plays golf. His builds aren't quite the same since he
discovered aluminum, plexiglass and pop rivets in the 70's.
Finally found some more pictures. Note smaller front tires in last pic with our dog
"driving". He was always complaining of understeer.
Point taken and I hope that the entire thread can be moved to somewhere appropriate so it may continue.
I guess the model years allowed by Good...

Now that's awesome!
Mr. Hoover invited us to bring our Hemi Duster to the Chrysler display at Woodward
this year (2015) and of course we will be...
I talked to Ted Spehar a couple of weeks ago and asked him if he had any pictures of the station
and he said he did not and that the only pic he...
Pictures make things interesting so here are a few recent ones......(wish I had some more of the Bullet!)

I forgot about Doug's......I had heard about it but had never went there.
That's really great about your son. What a job to have with his upbringing, interests and capabilities.
Did he get his Bee to Michigan yet? Tell...
Then I'll bet you used to go to Lou's Speed Shop around the corner and Seaport Automotive a few blocks away.
That would be awesome. I will look forward to it!
Thanks HemiFried! That is something that I didn't have! The picture is now stored

BTW, Mr. Hoover has invited us to be in the...
