Three generations of Jack Lawford’s made the trip and the youngest at 5 years old now says he has “salt in his blood”  .... he did take a taste to be sure it was really salt. !

Special Request for a fellow car guy...
stu paer

Last September, Stu Paer was diagnosed with a fatty liver. Liver Disease is on the increase, affecting 1 out of every 10 Americans. Since then his health has deteriorated, but thanks to technology you can help Stu by donating half of your liver. This procedure is called a living donor transplant. The risks involved are extremely minimal and interestingly enough, the liver is the only organ in the body that will regenerate 100% within three months. For more information about the procedure, click HERE.  and see if we can help save Stu.

prod ron francis

From Ron Francis Wiring...This control is designed specifically to greatly reduce the shock to the electrical system as the 70 amp relay kicks in. In order to make a smoother start up, we separated the two legs of the fan so they start at different temperatures, thus the surge is much lower or about 25-30 amps at a time.  For Details
