    MacKenzie’s Delaware pulling out of state tagged vehicles!!

    Just read MacKenzie’s state is pulling out of state tagged vehicles like down in Florida. At least in Florida they are pulling New York and New Jersey cars. Mackenzie is pulling all out of state. Wonder what happens if someone is coming into his state to buy his 62 Belair “Grumpy”? Robert

    Bullet Making 101

    Seriously Dave a friend of mine here (409 owner) loaded his bullets and I used to "help" and I've always been impressed with the precision of your type of work. Sort of reminds me of being in Hendrick's engine shop in Concord NC. Robert

    Phil: the two late 2019 events were very dusty and I seriously will spend some time under the car and under the hood as needed.
