Re: I had to take a break for a while due to too much talk.

@Barreldawg:
The shirts are open to all interested parties. A number were ordered last year by folks who couldn't attend.

We generally keep the cost as low as possible to cover art & vendor costs. We could tack on$5 for a donation to HD or HDA if you'd support that.

Damn funny, dude put the supercharger on the roof!

I'm still talking to the author on this one to add the supercharger and header outa the side of the engine area.
