    Fuck 'em! As long as you're going man. It would be different if you could CLONE yourself. Or you could sleep out in the open and be a big bird shit target!:D

    Hey ZAQ, you didn't say what kinda trans-----if it's a 350, check the governor, it's external so you don't have to drop the pan, if it ain't right it won't come out of first. Just saying BILL RINALDI

    I'll be going for the first time this year. I picked up a '51 Chevy right after Christmas and I haven't even put a wrench to it yet. I've been collecting parts and learning all I can about the car, if the weather co-operates I'll be riding the Harley. Sorry, it's not an old Harley but, when I started customizing it I wanted to give it some old custom car styling cues.

    I'll be in the shop everyday for the forseeable future so anyone traveling near Marshalltown Iowa 65 miles NE of Des Moines is invited to stop at my shop in Green Mountain (middle of town next to the Fire Station) 7 miles NE of Marshalltown and I'll show you mine if you show me yours.

    What is this Festival of Force causing movement around an axis????





    There are people camping already from what I hear from a local source. Can't wait til tomorrow. Have to get a new wheel on the sidecar already though. I guess the son and I got a little too wild yesterday. Break 'em or break 'em in I say.
