Here's the photos of the SPG which will now go 'stop the door' somewhere else (if I can resize them for the Registry's steam-powered server):

I had the sense to wrap it and keep it off damp surfaces.

Yeah, it came from Rennsport via Warren. He did not in any way mislead me about it, and even in the 70's $500 was cheap for a crank.

It may be a doorstop, but no one likes rusty doorstops.

By edit: Probably not cool to put an address up without permission.

Hard to get a lightbulb in a crank.
But call next time you end up here; there's a water-front place using brake discs as bar lamp shades.

I sold a rusty 9 front clip last year to a bar that was going to open up next to Porsche in Atlanta, I'll have to drop in one day and see my clip made into a liquor cabinet.

I know those addresses. Both Rolling Hills and Redondo Beach a couple miles away.
Just up the hill from Mike Wilson.

I believe that was Warren's dental office address. I think he moved out of the area.
