Peter….What kind of money do you think it would take to get the S/P back to the New York area? 😎 Don Kauer…
I thought we would hear from you Kauer, you should just make the call and find out from the horses mouth. We have a similar dilema in “Linguine Bros.” land. We found the old “pro gas ” Vega we built and ran, now its “shit or get off the pot time”. We have to ask ourselves how much time do we have left and what do we want to do with it. ❓
ps; I’m having surgery on my arm Friday and going up in a glider on Saturday. 😮
Good luck brother, Pat
Has anybody contacted Billy’s brother Bobby,or ‘Speed’s’ family about the Super Pumpkin up for sale? They might be very interested in buying it back!

I really love what I´m reading…….Get together and bring her over there. Stockholm will be the nearest port about 80 miles away compared to Gothenburg wich is 200+ miles away, but that´s no big deal either one. Hey Dino…. did the phonenumbers make any sense this time? If not,send me your number and I will pass it on.
