adam79 Hi, thats a bute Feb 27th, 2010
Bob I sold this last October (2009) as it was just sitting in the garage. I just did not have any time to use it, other than clean the dust off every week or two. Sorry to see it go but it has gone to someone who will enjoy it and look after it. Feb 21st, 2010

shadowman-t5 What a wonderful example. She is a year younger than me, and looks in better condition. How much of the restoration have you undertaken as a personal crusade? Jan 5th, 2008
