Below I'm going to show a bunch of pictures that a long-distance friend of mine owns....
He is definitely a gear-head and a really nice guy/character all at the same time.:oops:
I will not divulge personal information such as name/location--
and if someone here spots something familiar--please keep it private.

This is out @ his retirement place---in no particular order--
.....and sometimes the lighting wasn't so good--I don't know why my camera didn't 'bulb' on..

That's all I got on that visit--he has more stuff, he said==for next time--
I think he has enough right that--but who am I to know?
I do luv this guy--we go wayyyyy back thru the years---but I lost touch with him for a few years--I do need to step up w/ my 'getting back to ya' w/ friends--I have been to three funerals in last three weeks...really sad--

Until next time--'til me what you'll think--I was in awe--and I don't surprise easy, anymore.

Dang! That boy got some toys! The volume is kind of numbing.....so many wonderful things. I really like that white Galaxy.......and that maroon Willys pickup hits a soft spot too. That's a biblical hoard. Thx Glenn.

As he told me when I left-headed home--That ain't all-homee.....Next time-ya know.(y)
I'll have to make a special tri[p back up there to 'hang around'--usually I would stop by and visit after my yearly hospital visit--but I don't need that anymore--so it'll be a ''ROAD TRIP"....Some good times and tall tales--believe me.

Any other thoughts/idea's? Over 700 'views' here--I didn't realize/know that many would be interested in other folk's collections...

I know about that-Paul--we didn't really talk that 'deep' into it/ I haven't had the privilege or the time to have 'sit down discussions w/ him.--but as far as I know--only one son, and not in the area.
So--I don't know, that's good question.....Has got quite a few old dudes that come by for Tuesday night grill outs in the spring/summer...I hope that it doesn't go to waste...
He is a real down to earth guy--and like I said--quite the character/ and a mechanical whiz......Hard combination not to like--
