Don't get me wrong this is a 20 year collection (obsession) My wife says at least I am cheating with a car and not another woman. But don't let her fool you she works on them as much as I do. How deep in this are we as a family? WELL my daughters dogs are named Savanna and Cosmo. And I am the self proclaimed High Priest of the Holy Order of the Wankel.
Thanks in advance for accepting me into your awesome community and I hope I can be a good steward for the marque
