Just for perspective a 2 incher takes a 1 1/2” Allen wrench.

    One of many in my collection but the cool thing about this book is...
    On pages 46-47 it has my T back when Tman still owned it. Taken at Sturgis.
    Third pic is as it sits now in Oklahoma. 20190510_200708.jpeg 20190510_200637.jpeg FB_IMG_1546108972719.jpeg

    Where did this thread end up? Have major plans come September to seriously down size from shop to library. Like serious library. 40 years Auto Mobile Quarterly, many if not all books in this thread. Posters, paintings, stuff and more stuff, 60 years of stuff.
    If any interest, chat me up.

    Just picked this one up out of a buddy's garage sale. From 1969, full of cool vintage drag racing pictures.
