    How much does it take to retire?

    A short ride from home finds this setting. Good therapy when needed, and even when not needed. That's a 1987 BMW K100 overlooking the South Fork of the American River.

    The V8 in v8dave

    Here is where the v8 in v8dave comes from. This was taken in 2000 on a tour we made to Yosemite with a bunch of other Flathead Ford V8s. We are the third owners of this car and it has an original 76,000 miles on it. We've put about 4,000 miles on in the 6 or 7 years we've had it.

    Friends

    BoneheadNW in the History thread asked about how well we knew each other and if we had met. I haven't met any of you folks here or on TBN in person. But, I feel a personal bond to quite a few of you and would happily entertain you in my home. That bond goes quite deep, to the point where I...
