Re: Individual wood pieces

I’ve seen a lot of ash. But prefer hard maple when I make my own which I usually do.

Re: I might have scam!

Is the scam a secret ?

(I'm sure everyone has seen how they butchered that in their attempt to "recreate" it.)

Actually I like the 2002-2005 restart of classic T’bird. Grossly overpriced when they came out. I evaluate...
