Leave it to Stainless, the Man of the World.

uphill.

Wrong !! I'm still here in the US of A.

Korey borrowed my shoes and then he flipped out.

Check www.target550.com frequently. I will be

posting there more often. I hope to make a daily

post from AZ. No service from Lake Gairdner but

maybe there is technology  that will allow it.

Damned the cost. I feel the need to advertise

the speed.

Even in the middle of preparing to go to Australia,

Marlo Treit is taking the car to the World of Speed

museum in Wilsonville, Oregon Saturday Nov. 18th.

It will be on display for one day and there will be a

lecture that describes the build and the goal.

Freud, I would think that in your younger days you could have spent the entire three days getting loaded and hang the rest of the work. :evil: :cheers:

The facts as Marlo remembers them.

The seats were all full and some fair

questions were asked.
