    Tim Pogue, AKA Junior Stock will keep as many as I need him to and bring them with him to the Hot Rod Reunion in Bowling Green. I'll get them from him there if not sooner. If you do have any heads for me please let me know as I'd really like to trade cookies for them.....unless of course you don't like cookies.:D
     
  3. Slicks? What happened to the mud-n-sno's and a couple of bare 283 blocks in the trunk?
    by the way anybody seen Skotzs tow car driver?
