I think all of us have missed hearing from you, some of us very much. It's been a long time. As other suggest, at some point the athlete evolves into the coach. -- Russ


Glad to have you back with us.

The layout has been donated to friends to see or it can be modified to show it in a museum.

Hi all,

I also was long time away from this site.....  Good to be back!

Last year in May Jacq reached out to us (the group of friends) because he had to move his stuff out of his garage. I offered to jacq to store the layout at a place I rent to store my classic American cars. So on the 3rd of July we picked his stuff up and drove back to our part of the country where the layout would be stored.

Our drive:

Secured for the transport:

And in my storage:

Which stores 3 cars:

What will happen to the layout? I don't know. For now it is save and maybe we will revive it for a future exhibition.

Grtz, Ronald.

Many is the time that I helped lug that layout in and out of shows , seeing how quick we could set it up . I think about three quarters of an hour is the quickest . Hopefully it will go to a good home . It is getting a bit tired now and could do with a bit of a make over .



I could say the same about myself! -- Russ

    I am sorry to be the one who has to tell you , but you are way passed the "bit of a makeover " stage . It would have to be a fully restoration job to make any significant difference to you . Which leads on to the next question , is there enough money in the budget to finance such an undertaking ? And at your ripe old age , would the cost v. benefits justify such a huge investment in time and manpower ?

  I think that to get a clearer idea of the feasibility of such a project we would need to get a surveyors report .

  I hope I haven't spoilt your Sunday !



Sorry, Nick, I didn't have time to read your whole post because I must resume satisfying about a dozen beautiful girls in thong bikinis, each eager to cater to my every whim. -- Russ


Nick it would look very nice at.

I'm sure Dave could bring it back to life.

I tried to but it seems they do not exist anymore.... so the layout still is in storage.

That's too bad about the Suncoast museum.
