    I will give you, any of them, John. Catch is, you have to start a new project, and give us weekly progress reports here. I miss the never ending stories of the "Orange Crate".

    I will also deliver to your shop, for fuel, and a little lodging...:D

    Steve.
    P.S. Actually, I'll give you more than one. How many do you want?

    You are a Gentlemen and a Scholar, Steve. Nice collection. I'll take a rain check.

    I think I'm done "building" vehicles. It's fun and I love it but it's like throwing money down a hole. I've recently returned to a hobby I had as a kid, Model Rocketry.

    I designed and built from scratch an X-Wing Fighter... and currently building the next scratch build. It satisfies my "lust" for designing stuff, and once I'm finished building I have less than $100 in the project.

    Probably. If, it was securely mounted and you pushed the "launch" button. Downside is, it would only last a short time, and you would have to re-paint your hood.

    283?!?
    Drooling...
    That’s exactly what I would replace my 228 with whenever it decides to give up the ghost!

    That is cool. My Brother and I used to build Estes rockets, when we were kids, also. Work, work, work, launch,... wow... Hey, Mike, it went into the clouds... never seen again, many times.
    Hey Zig, when I get to the shop, I will tag that 283, Reserved, for Zig. DO NOT SHIP, hold for pick up. Let's see, that will get you to west-central, Indiana. Half way to New Hampshire.:D

    Steve.

    New Hampshire? Wasn't there a guy building a truck from there? Oh yeah, that's right... he's a CARPENTER now.
