as promised pictures of the Ford LGT 165 with a flathead V8.It is a 60hp V8 from a 38 Ford. I chased him with my Ford 100 (10hp) pulling 2 people on carts across the show grounds and he just disappeared, but I caought up with him later after he stopped for the day. Can you believe he could out run me like that? lol. Also a motorized bathtup, and the plow I picked up for the GT18.Had fun weekend.
