I jetted my truck and got some parts to tune it some more. The plugs were just barely on the white side so I'll need to cruise with some new plugs and check it again. Got a new battery disconnect switch - mine died in Great Falls - which I'll put in tonight.

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.

Been selling parts on Craigslist. Just items I've been saving for some future project. I
now realize there won't be any future projects. Just hoping to complete the Bantam and roadster plus repairs and modifications to a few others.

In addition to selling parts I've got stashed in the woods (It's going slow, not much interest) I decided to clean out my steel rack, getting rid of all the short pieces. Got over half loaded in the truck. Who would think a person could accumulate this much?

You haven't seen my junk pile. Every couple of years 2 good trailers full leave here and that's the stuff I'm not trying to use...I think it's an addiction...

I built a rack system for all my stock including short pieces. I can find it faster that way.

OI, I had it sorted and stored in a manner where I could find what I needed. Just won't need it anymore. This is the leftovers from building around 10 hot rods.

Pay good money at the steel yard, get pennies at the scrap yard. What a deal.
