Made In China

Support the China you live in or live in the China you support?

I had no hand in this what so ever but my 7 year old nephew wants to be a Fitter and Turner! Not a fireman, not a police man, not even a bloody zoo keeper but a Fitter and Turner. THIS makes me very happy and when "Poppy" said he would bring him round my house to see how a lathe works he thought that was cool. Sure he may change is mind and end up an office clerk, but for now wanting to "make metal shapes in machines" is enough for me.

May Day

"It is a tragedy of the first magnitude that millions of people have ceased to use their hands as hands. Nature has bestowed upon us this great gift that is our hands. If the craze for machinery methods continues, it is highly likely that a time will come when we shall be so incapacitated and weak that we shall curse ourselves for having forgotten the use of the living machines given to us by God." Mahathma Ghandi

440.... I never get tired of looking at this car. But if i'd seen it in primer and you'd have said you wanted to paint it purple, i would never have imagined it would turn out this good.

The carson top and ribbed bumpers make this car.
