Default Been a long time!

Hey all just thought I would say hey again, its been quite a while since I last posted here! Have collected a few more saw, small engines (Briggs, Lauson, Clinton) you name it! Also built a 1957 Ford gasser wagon to do some drag racing on the weekends! Hope all is going well here and you will be hearing from me soon. Oh and working on the possibility of a Hit and Miss or throttler before the end of the year, will keep ya posted!
