As part of the program, does Courtney Hansen interview Ol' Ron?

I think they tried to interview Ol'Ron but the censors got to it right away. You know Ron... he's a true character to say the least.

Hey Ron, what's Chevk TV ? I don't think it's on my Dish TV. I've got a million channels and nothing worth watching. Except Gun Smoke. Walt

Saw the show early Sat. morning on CBS Sports channel. It was very good. A couple of young guys tearing into a flatty and learn pretty quick that it's a lot of work. Stuck motor. Busting out a piston. Worth watching.
BTW. Courtney Hansen is going to be at the Syracuse show in July. I have my reservations for the weekend.

I think Courtney is a very intelegent young lady, well rounded in the automotive world. However, I'm too old to start a training program for her. I'd like to meet some young lady in her late 60's, early 70's with good eyesight and a pickup truck.

Funny how we do those things. When I was building my dragster all I had for a steering box was a 40 Ford. I mounted it sideways under the dash with the sector shaft sticking out the side of the cowl. When I got the drag link hooked up I turned the steering wheel to the right and the wheels turned to the left. I didn't think I could think that fast. lol Walt

Walt, If you ride a motor cycle much counter steering comes natural. Steer left turn right, no problem. Harley
