    Gas, wood, old canvas and a smoke. Nice combo.

    That jackshaft bearing reminds me of the boy scouts. How do you start a fine without matches? Spin a shaft in a wooden socket!


    Just goes to show you how lucky we really are,......unless this economy turns around you might find yourself building one just like it.

    hmmmm, can't tell if his headlight runs off the white wire from the pic. Pretty ingenious use of what is available.

    I'm beginning to think Kilroy's picture is politically incorrect. The man's obviously Asian and being portrayed in an unsophisticated light. The vehicle in question looks to lack basic safety equipment, such as air bags, seat belts, wheels etc. His ride looks like a polluter for sure and he looks like an ad for Marlboro. Just to recap:

    1. It's ok to make fun of someone because they look different than us.

    2. It's ok to disregard safety and encourage others to do likewise.

    3. It's acceptable to pollute the earth.

    4. Smoking is cool.

    After thinking about this whole ugly mess, I'm definitely offended and think Kilroy should offer himself up for sacrifice.

    He is getting some wind in his face. Probably made it his self. Just living the dream. Isn't that what's it about ?
