    Hey thanks!!

    Oh yeah! I see it every day. Looking at me, staring at me. Waiting for me. It’s sitting just the same.

    Life and other priorities have kept me busy with other stuff. But, I hope to get back to some fun roadster stuff soon!

    Well, my guess that it was in a cargo hold of the Titanic wasn't really that far off. Cool in a kinda weird way.

    The updates never are perfect. I find if I check in too often that breaks the update mechanism. I have a bookmark in my favorites at the top of my browser to https://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/watched/threads .

    Now this may take you to my unread watched threads but you get the idea. Just click on that link and you see right away if anything needs looking at and you can relax and enjoy.. :)

    I have the same link bookmarked - I believe it does a search for the user who is logged in.

    those pictures are from 1983, and the chassis is going to be rebuilt by my step son in calif. with the 27 roadster body. but the banger blew up 35 years ago and got traded for a Flathead.
