    That, I know
    Just saying that most of a 40lb, $1200.00 block goes for recycling
    Friend started building V-4 HD clone, was over $25,000 into it before the 2009 crash, scrap alloy isn't worth anything compared to new billet
    If I ever came up on the lottery it would definitely be something to consider

    Same here. If I won the lottery I'd build a full machine shop and foundry to make whatever I desired. Stuff along the lines of Larry Ellison's Billet Cobra.

    I noticed the seller right away. Wondered what else he might have in his collection. And then I wonder how many thought it was Graham Crosby of CSN/Y and not the racer Graeme Crosby?
    I carry a gun because I'm too young to die, too old to take an ass whooping, and a cop is too heavy.

    First off it is David Crosby and Graham Nash of CSN&Y. Second, in this crowd - I'm sure we all knew who it was.
    Frankie, the Big Kahuna: What does that mean, "we're not in?"
    Annette: Wild guess? I think it means they're not in.
    Bobby: Boy, it's quite a piece of dialogue when you intellectual masterminds get together! I should be writing this down!

    Frankie, the Big Kahuna: But what does "we" mean?
    Bobby: [impossibly sarcastic] I think it's the plural form, meaning "more than one." Would you like me to conjugate that for you, Pop? Do you know what "conjugate" means, Dad?

    $6300 sound good for a Dart aluminum v-8 block.
    Here's your choices fast, cheap, reliable. Pick two.

    A guy in Sydney who helped me with a ton of C&C work said that a full machine filled with scrap files is worth at most a case of beer. Still means beer.

    I had the privilege of standing next to Cros when he starting up his XR69 at the Barry Sheene Festival of Speed, with Campbell on the RG500 next to him. It's scary how fast those guys were compared to every other punter on the track.

    I might even have some footage somewhere. I'll have a look around.
    You don't even know how to stunt/coffee/chopper/moisturize bro.
