    Pretty productive day on the Trouble Maker. Nitro Jim and I did some maintenance on the starter and battery pack and did the front brakes on the old Dodge tow vehicle.

    We sanded the 40 year old paint off the trailer and put down a fresh coat of white.

    Love the gold leaf work and it really gives it that vintage retro look.
    The Chaparrall Trailer is really cool!

    If anyone is looking for a kick ass sign painter or pinstripe artist in the Los Angeles area give Al a call. He's a pro, does great work and has great prices. Give his Facebook page a, "like" and see what he's up too.

    How did you guys do at the March Meet? I only saw one pass. George's Godzilla made a strange pass in that session, I guess everyone was struggling with the cold conditions. I was gonna stop in, say hi and introduce myself but you guys looked mighty busy.
    ^^ That true?^^ Is it for sale?

    An enthusiastic build, impressive early performances, a freshly painted trailer and car, and now it's in the classifieds? What happened? The inquiring minds of us die-hard AA/FA fans want to know?
    Sure hope you guys are all right.
