Title: Diesel joy!!!

 ;D ;D ;D
Happy day!.....30+ years ago I was a paw diesel man....buzzard bombshells, playboy sr., spook's...marriage and jobs got in the way....all my old girls were sold off....speed up to now, I'm semi retired, still poor as a church mouse, so getting hobby stuff comes difficult.... but I have a NEW ERIC CLUTTON DIESEL IN THE HOUSE,

I built a lazy bee for this motor, club member was going to pay me, but I wanted a diesel instead of payment,and johnathan my friend, broker'd the deal! Eric ran the motor for johnathan toget to me....and this afternoon......after years of getting back into the hobby with rubber, then electrics, now I have come full circle. ;D :D :o
I think a scaled down Zipper may win the decision of what special old timer will I build......

Well it's good to hear Eric is still holding forth in Tullahoma.  Last saw him at Sun & Fun around 2000.
