That was cool 8) Some great memories made there. I couldn't tell who had the biggest smile. Might have been the guy behind the camera. I have got to slip over and see the F-14 in person sometime.

One of the best You Tube videos I have seen. I get motion sick watching some of them.

Just watched the video for the first time... WOW... That is one tough beast to start, isn't it? Makes ya want to park it at the top of a hill most days, I would think!

Mikey did a nice job driving Miss Daisy... very nice! Does the tractor have hand brakes? I have never really seen one of these up close and personal, before...

Mike - the compression is very good on this engine. It starts pretty easily when it is cold. It is a little more cantankerous when it is warm. I think I will get a new magneto coil for it.
Yes, it does have hand brakes and the brakes also engage on tight turns leaving both hands free for steering.
Whenever you get a trip in the central Ohio area again let's see if we can get together and we'll give you a ride.

You are ON, BigDog... I need to head that way before too long, anyhow, so let's plan on it when I head out that way!!
