There used to be a big time local RV dealer owned by Tom *****. Now it's a Camping World or some other national chain. There used to be Tom ***** RV billboards all along that stretch of I70.

Well Gents, the 2022 square body gathering in Richmond In. is August 5 & 6 this year. Concert, dirt drags and trucks everywhere. Anyone interested in meeting up there? Met up with @bucket and @TubeTruck last year. Had a blast. I think they had 500 or so trucks last year.

I'm still planning on going. Not sure yet what I'll be driving or if I can make it there Friday, but I definitely plan on being there Saturday.

We plan on being there on Friday when the gates open. Will be looking to purchase a 76-79 K-20. Had one 40 years ago. Still love them. Sold my 77 burb a couple of years ago-still having sellers remorse. Maybe a new project will help. need a open backend to haul the old radial engines I overhaul in. Couldn't fit one in the burb.

Would sure like to hear about the radial engines you work on! The old T-29's I used to fly early in my career had R-2800-99 in them.

I overhaul Wright 760 and 975 radials. Babies compared to a 2800! Check out Wacobrad on youtube. That's my plane and some of the engines.

I never realized they used Radial engines in US Army WWII battle tanks! I had always assumed they used automotive type engines.

You've got some very nifty toys to play with!
