    Someone in a Facebook group has a pic of Bill in the 800 at the truck show in Brooklyn. Sure looked like a beast. Made his day when I gave the pic to him at our spring show! He says it went to a friend of his in East Hampton who turned it into a ten wheeler. Take your time coming down Ron, we'll be there for many years to come.
    That may have been another one of our young members who is Bill's protege, as Bill isn't computer literate quite yet. The scraper runs every show, come on out and visit sometime!

    Got the email, Ron. I'll give you a call later this week, maybe I'll drop by with a coffee and we can chat for a few. Actually ran into Bill today coincidentally.
