Re: Flathead V8 machine shop in Texas

I remember seeing Rex Rod & Chassis and reference to flathead work. Martin Bros Lane, Johnson City, Tx. I believe he's Vern Tardel's brother.

Re: Disc trimer /cutter

Unless you have many to do, I use an old pair (Chinese made) of aviation snips and do it by eye. The uneven edge actually helps for some reason.

Re: Adirondack Nationals

I'm a charter member of the club. Got out a bunch of years ago when it turned into more of a money making thing than an interest in cars. It is a nice place for a car show.

Re: Green gas
