    Glad you enjoy the video. The strange thing it does not really hurt the chickens. They seem like they like it. If you get to Greensboro, NC come by the house you can try it to. Hope to see you in Oct at Goodguy show in Charlotte. Peace

    More work. A Brookville body would have been easier.

    I am moving really good. Hope we can make it Steel in Motion.
    I call our friend this morning. Everything is ready for us to go back to TN. The other car your dad is interested in might be for sale. Tell your dad I will pay for supper this time Asheville.

    If you see JW again Hillsboro ask him how his car coming along. Understand she has been working on the frame for about 7 years. I am sure it something to see.
