« on: January 12, 2011, 08:38:17 PM »
Just when you think you've seen them all... This is an "Eliminator" Jet Drive made in limited quantities and used in a handfull of river boats in the 60's /70's, Jet was apparently made in Lewiston Wahington and I was told today it was affectionatley called the "Spokane sewer pipe" sooooooooooo, This Poor Old Gent (customer) buys this boat in Idaho and hauls it back to Texas , cleans it up, freshens the Olds Engine and takes it to water a few weeks back Alas it wont get on plane now its here ;) ought to be a challenge ! This Baby was ahead of its day Three impellers and waaaaaay long "straight" snoot

It had a custom made..[/SIZE]...[/SIZE]

The No Wake Zone / russo and steele disaster
« on: January 25, 2010, 10:02:41 AM »
A customer just sent me this link to the carnage from the Auction very sad Tom

"The Russo and Steele Collector Automobile Auction remained closed on Saturday as work crews continued to asses damage and clean up from high winds that destroyed two tents at the auction site in Scottsdale, Ariz., on Thursday night.

In a message posted on the Russo and Steele Web site, CEO Drew Alcazar said he would meet with consignors of the cars at the auction on Saturday morning. He added that the auction would remain closed on Saturday but that Russo and Steele would work to hold auction sessions on Sunday and Monday.

Alcazar said the auction site would not reopen to the public until it was approved by Scottsdale city officials.

During the storm on Thursday night, an 800-foot long tent broke loose from its anchors and blew onto a nearby freeway. Metal poles from the tent hit and damaged cars, while open-top cars at the auction received water damage from.......

The No Wake Zone / Dog Bite
« on: November 17, 2009, 08:02:00 PM »
 So here goes Guys : We moved our shop/store about three Months back to a different Industrial complex as most everyone knows . These Places have a kind of "life of thier own" to set the stage ... So today I'm strolling thru the parking lot to my mail box , when I see this rather large mangy ass dog coming towards me Although I'm a dog owner (big Golden ones) and I like dogs I have great respect for unknown dogs and try to be very carefull around them .... so I continue on to the box keeping an eye on him , all of a sudden the SOB dog struts up and bites me on the right arm thru my jacket ! I say WTF and pull my arms in close to my body Then he bites me on the back of a calf and my left hand (bruised but didn't break the skin ) by now I'm a little freaked & intimidated so I yell out to the shop where the mutt "belongs" . The Dog and shop owner comes out and takes the dog away to chain him up then comes back doesn't appologize and says "next time he does that just smack him" (the dog is around 90 lbs) I say I was looking for a board or ?? to do just that ! he says "oh I don't want you hitting my dog with a board" I'm thinkin "whats wrong with this picture ?? I'm supposed to wonder when and if this dog will bite me again (or one of my family or customers, huge liability issue) And heres this dumb ass making me feel bad that his dog (not supposed to be there anyhow) might be in danger from me ? this guy should be begging forgivness right now I say next time I'll call animal control he says "Oh so thats how you roll huh" Then to make matters worse he says "This is "XYZ industrial Park were a big family and you need to conform" (or something like that) ensenuating that we weren't part of the click yet? Here the point #1Business's and Dogs just don't mix IMO #2 Had this been me I would have been asking this guy if he was ok and appologizing up the gazzoo #3 When I called the Buildingsuper he says "Oh yeah that dog is a little rambunctious .........Any thought Folks ?
