    Tommy Who? Really, You are sure given that grumpy OLD Italian a lot of credit. Ok the one thing about Tommy he doesn't just talk it, he walks it. I have been doing this way to long and he is the best engine builder/Friend I could ask for. His one down fall is he just cares too much. I love him for that but i know he looses sleep over 2-3 horse power.
    They don't come any better. I am proud to have his decal on my car. Ok, on the other side he keeps telling me I suck and he should drive, maybe I should try it because I do suck but having fun, If i did not associate with the guys around me (including Tommy) I would have quit by now.
    Also not to leave out Ken, he gives him one hell of a car. Awesome job all of you.
    Hey where are those other two goofs that always chime in, I thought for sure they would be commenting on a better way by now.
