Funny thing is my 11 year old out of the blue asked me which of my cars can he have when he starts driving. He actually asked for the project syncro we call monster van Shocked I assumed he would want the sport compact or his own but this weekend's events have his wheels spinning into the syncro direction. Twisted Evil


You should get him one now, the price of a $yncro may double by then.

The GF has found one in town that has been used as a shed for some time and has been talking to the owner. She will probably talk me into picking that one up too shortly Wink

No, shaun or someone else probably picked it up to pass back on to the owner. I didn't notice it when I picked up all of the firewood.

Here's the fun part - he chopped the body in the CENTER of the body - not the top or the bottom! Woof!

Not yet, anyway... Smile

I had to do a double-take to appreciate just how much body modification is going on there. I've heard campfire stories about Jack and his work. Wow.

Looks like a great time out there. Hope I can make it next year.

These rocks sure do look strategically placed... Hmmm....

Yeah, I piled up those rocks on the right and didn't like the line so I ended up going left over the rocks down from the peak.

Yes, I am jealous I didn't make it.

Any claims on the RMW giveaways?
