Hi everyone!

I've been "Lurking" for months and stumbled on to Steve Wolverton's Puffin and puffin2 builds and was motivated to get out and start reguardless of the temp. I hope I can come up with at least one inovative idea to share or at least humor you all trying. :D

Thanks,
Tony G.

Hey, Milan Michigan! We use to go to Milan Speedway to see the drag races when I was a kid. Is that still going on?

Welcome to the Forum.

Hi Tony, Great to have you here. Are you sure your parents will let you use power tools, you look to be a tad on the young side :lol:

Cheers
Paul :thumbsup:

Scott G- The dragway is still going as strong as it ever was. I'm looking forward to distant rumble of HP with the return of the Robin.
Paul- That would be my Grandson :baby: "1 year old this week" :P He will be starting out on the less leathel hand tools like... Sandpaper after a few seasons of camping with his Grandma and myself.

Hey Milan,

Welcome to the forum.

Ann Arbor is as close as we get... Chell works there!!!

So you're a Puffin fan. Well be sure to check out the Generic ET in the hall of fame before you build... ;) :lol:

Mike...
The quality is remembered long after the price is forgotten, so build your teardrop with the best materials...

Arne;

Thanks for the post,

I didnt realize it until now but Ive had your Aero 1 build in my favorits list for months. Curving the walls in on the front of that masterpiece was a nice touch. :applause:
I see you have Hijacked my Grandson, that pic puts a smile on my face every time I see it. :D

Side Note: We could all hide............. but that would make Mike very lonley. :cry: :lol:
