Very nice pics! One more thing to remind me of how times used to be.
I often imagine myself being able to snap my fingers and being back in the good ole days!

And then you wake up to a NIGHTMARE & say "where the hell am I???" Who is this Obama dude... & why does our Flag look like it came off a Pepsi can???? what do you MEAN my kid's have to walk through a METAL DETECTOR at School???

We live in the WRONG generation gentlemen!! Have anyone read the new article in Chevy High Performance about protecting our Hot Rod/HP hobby rights?? It was scary... the government is starting to encroach on our hobby... glad I don't live in California.

Figured it might be some sort of service ramp but look at the drums on the bottom, what is that for testing the brakes? Pretty cool whatever it is.
