Too bad they don't come with bodies.....the body custom form fits the chassis.
I see the little clips I needed a few weeks ago :laugh2:

Hey Bill, what is the deal with the WX up there, you go from Hurricane season to winter storms in the course of 2 weeks it seems like :laugh2:

Pablo, the weather up here changes frequently. Last weekend's winter storm came during hurricane season. The state's Oct. snow record went from 3" to more than 30" in just this storm. Many trees still had their leaves on which complicated matters. This morning, there are still 65,000 NH homes & businesses without power. Thankfully, I'm not one of them. :)

It sure would cut down on the amount of snow blowing & shoveling we'll have to do. :laugh2:

Brian, I contracted in Denver during 1995 & 96. One of the conditions of my going there was that my wife & kids would be able to come out skiing. :)

Great job, Paul.

Roger keeps a nice supply of the old stuff over there for sure, and a good guy to deal with to boot! I have mental pictures of him going down into some dark vault with a miner's hat and a canary in a cage looking for vintage stuff to fill my orders :laugh2:

Sorry for wrecking your mental image but, it's the back room, nicely lit, warm in the winter cool in the summer, lots of shelving, pegboard, and storage containers filled with vintage parts and no carary's. Marshal, his dog does roam around there at times.

Thanks for the info, tinshak ...... good to know Roger has some of those bodies ......because.....I bid on 2 on ebay :laugh2:

Track test #2 today was a complete success. :D The car is 100% done, handles well, and the big hopping problem is gone. The car does not have a lot of brakes, but it scoots around a roadcourse very nicely for what it is. :D Mission Accomplished. Onward, said Capt. Rick ;)
