    WOW!!!

    You did a great job colorado1.

    Most people never heard of this sport, here is a good article about it called "Thrills And Funerals".

    Some of the originals go for a decent amount of money.

    Keep up the excellent work!

    Thanks everyone, I really appreciate that. it's one of those project you never get completely done. I've been putting patina on all the chrome parts. lots of people have made offers and wanted it. I may have to make another. dang expensive though!
