It is GREAT to see you on DC again!!!! I love following your builds and projects. I wish there were more of that on DC. The problem for me is $$$$ and the shoulder replacement. (YES, I'm younger, but still falling apart.) I have always appreciated following what you are up to. Thanks for posting and yes you are missed when you are gone!

We didn't hold a premature service for you. I need to see the dent in the bucket first. You will leave quite a dent someday!

I am in the middle of building a go kart right now, my 13 year old Grandson is here with me, and we are going to build a jr dragster after this. Any one out there have any experience with the jr dragsters?

Its been a busy year, We were in California dec, jan. picking up my son amd grandsons car (61 pinto), 4 wheelers, and motorcycle. They just got the rest of there stuff and them selves here about a week ago. He works for Discount tire and is going to open a new store here.

I picked up a new Eastwood 250 amp mig welder about a month age and it is a dream to use compared to the 130 amp 110 unit I had.

So you see the projects I have planed, go kart, jr dragster, 1/4 mile strip car, still working on my "53" I have completed the electronic dash in it. Need to get some pictures posted.

Old School is still alive and well in North West Missouri.

Good to see you are still staying busy. No time for a nursing home.

Yes it is, but you can spend a lot of money in 4 years...
