Life, Larry.


I've got a car waiting for the engine build to be finished so I can put it in the shop for the winter. I also have my two youngest daughters playing their first year of high school sports. I'm chasing them around.


Of course, that doesn't mean I'm not doing Falcon stuff. Several of us are looking at starting an eastern WA chapter of the FCA so I've passed flyers out to several owners of Falcon's I know of here in Ellensburg and have contacted all members in eastern Washington. The good news is we have enough to charter a chapter and will look to do so within a month or two.

Larry - yeah, sorry for being so distant as well. I'm in the middle of a big move and as I indicated at the meeting I'm sorry I had nothing even prepared for that. It's been a weird year for many of us, so hopefully next year some normality will resume.

By the way, I looked all over for the info on that car and it has somehow gone "poof" amidst my chaos. I know where the car "was" and may fit in a drive to that location soon to see if it is still in the carport.

Whew, me too. Iím not sure Iíve ever worked this hard for so long. Meanwhile my wife was flying back and forth across the company to help her Mom with her Dad who was in home hospice. He finally passed away and at that point it was a blessing. For those of you familiar with high performance ignitions, his name is Jack Priegel and he was the founder of MSD Ignition. He had quite a few patents on ignitions and fuel-air controls. He was quite a guy. A great family man, inventor and business man who had a huge love for helping everyone with their hot rods or anything with a throttle cable for that matter.
Anyway, the family is all ok.
Meanwhile- Carole and I expect to be home before Christmas and I look forward to starting the final touches on the falcon.

Sorry about your loss Don.

I suspect winter projects haven't started. I have, however, just completed a different project for my other hobby - 1993 Trek mountain bike converted to road bike handlebars, brake levers and shifters.

Nice!
At least somebody is working on something.
We can call it the falcon bike.
