Re: Anderson Sprinter

Mitch,
Thanks for your concern. Cancer was removed by aggressive surgery on my stomach. I'm OK these days, or as good as I can be. It's better than the other option.

Re: Olen McGuire has left us

Olen always had encouraging things to say about my posts, from other side of the world. I'm certain he was genuinely interested in what happened 'down under'.

Re: Gilmer 1/4 scale V8/60

Chris,
I visited Jan Gilmer in Howard Lake Minnesota, in 2011 and watched him work in his shop. It's nothing special, yet he turns out these works of art. The man is an absolute craftsman.
