What a show stopper. I can hear the bowtie brigade whining now.

There's nothing like the sound of a pushrod V8 singing at the top of her lung's.

I'm borrowing the hinge color idea so I can save as much of the Tangerine Kandy as possible.

Love to see this Comet at PF one day if you could ever make it there, not sure where you are located but it would be great if you could make it one year.

See ya,

Been wondering about you.

Those links send me to pages of stuff. Do you have a Youtube update?

Stacy....I don't know which browser you're using, but I'm using Chrome. I clicked on the Chrome link above, then clicked on Add Extension to Chrome in the top right corner of the page that opened, and it works like a champ. I can see all the PB stuff again. Thanks, Johno, for discovering this. :D
