  3. Terry we checked out your car t the Roundup. It is a sweet little car. Those rough edges made it cooler.

    Terry,
    Looked at your car at LSR on Friday. Good landing spot for the motor and trans
    that I have been walking around and stumbling over in my shop for more than fifteen years.
    Great car.
    What's the Ranchero going to get for a motor?
