You guys should have played games with him, and made him look for them!:D

LOL, I need all the help I can get! I got a 1979 Earl Smith 18' Gullwing basket case sitting next to my house that I'm gonna be restoring when the weather gets cooler. Squircha and 396 are my gullwing inspirational mentors!! They are setting the bar kinda high though...
