The people, collecting parts mmm.. I love me some parts, the technical aspects but the best part is listening to others stories of their experiences and learning the history of this hobby . I have met Paul Smith , 1973 NHRA drag racing champion and I went to a garage sale out in the country and met an older gentleman who dated Ed Iskendarian's daughter. We sat down and talked for an hour and half. The coolest 1 1/2 I have spent .
