Got to see one in person yesterday! That is one sweet engine. Made me drool a little bit. Maybe I can get my son to get a video of it running at my gas up today so we can post for everyone's enjoyment. Looks like it came right off a lease. In its work clothes.

time to prepare for the Portland Indiana swap meet! Got the golfcart battery installed, tuned up the camper and box trailer. Hope I didn't forget anything important. Installed e-track on the trailer, takes awhile to get what you need to hold things down, seems to work OK tho.
