Ditto but I'm not afraid for some prayer on your families behalf. So either way we got you covered.

I guess the quad guys who are the "Perry Forest Trail Crew" were in there today "clearing trails". There's some stuff on facebook about it, looks like the typical big quad trails, he said they were not allowed to go anywhere but the marked trails, but it sure looks like they are making highways....

Anyone catch NHRA T/F racer Antron Brown's crash yesterday? Pretty amazing that he walked away. One of a few that runs with a cockpit canopy.

Had the same reaction, thought for sure he would be carried out in a bag.

I hope he played the lottery. It was definitely his lucky day.

so, the weather was nice-ish today so I rolled up 140 miles on the Sabre...after snagging the latest Farnsy tag, I headed down to Athens to hit Leghorns for some of their giant wings...

and speaking of racing I found something interesting...where 13, 550 and 33 intersect just north of Athens is this place:



which has a couple interesting features on its porch:



and





Mike Skinner's old #31 Lowes car







anyone know what "rear changer car" refers to?

btw, I peeked in the front wheel wells, no engine...but there were two ignition coils and two ignition control boxes bolted to the floor that would be ripe for the picking if one were the thieving type. You can see the coils in one of the pics...

I enjoyed my first day back to work today ( If I keep saying it will it come true?)

anyway apparently I missed a whole lot of drama, none of the stories match up so same old same old, nothing has changed. I can't say much about it on here, but someday I should write a book.

something is amiss with that stock car. I find it very hard to believe they were running regular coils in the early 2000's.

I looks like it was actually raced or at least a practice car. Too many stone chips to just be a show car. Those chassis are stupid cheap without the driveline. I've seen them go for $3000ish bucks as rollers, it would be sweet to put one back together and hit the vintage road course circuit.

Ment to post this awhile back

My oldest daughter (now 6) taking the exhuast off the scooter

All I had to do was point out what nuts and bolts to wrench.

I still know better than to get her a tool set, I know what all I took apart when I was her age!
