    Wow!

    Thanks so much judges. 3 finalists. Come find me at Grey Eagle Mn. this weekend or Eagle River Wi. next weekend.
    When in doubt, use full throttle!!!  It may not improve the situation, but it will end the suspense.

    Sorry didn't get the pics up before had to take off.

    1st place find is K95guy with the Colt. Amazing history, well documented, and deservedly saved from time.

    2nd place find is Slidejob85's Sno Shoo Scorchers found in the basement of a mortuary. All the original paperwork, manual, and tool kit included. A story that will be told for a long time and a sweet sled to show for it.

    3rd place find is 72blizzard340 and the Bullets. Not much info but the sleds speak for themselves. Hope to see one fixed up at a show some day.

    I'd rather eat crumbs with bums than eat steaks with snakes.
