Re: Elgin road race

Sex-ay! And kicks butt! And a one-of-one with the actual provenance. Some heavy hitters have owned this dreamboat.

Re: Anyone know where this box came from?

rotorwrench seems to be on the right track. From what I see and from reading the description, this bed/box looks like it, and many other things, were made for the vehicle.

Re: Pat McFarlane RIP

Pat/Ohio, did you have some history with his Model B?

This is taking a left turn. But Michael is so into parts that he knows their numbers like I know the times tables up to twelve. Probably he knows about ten thousand of them. Going through a swap...
