He said he preferred working on the 20mm Vulcan equipped models vice the 50cal equipped models but I have no idea why.

He was pissed because he bought a 1970 Boss 302 after he got done with training, and then he got sent to Thailand and the car sat so long he had to replace all the tires when he got back.

If more stuff comes to mind I'll post up. S/F....Ken M
