This was a wild ride to Orrstown that day. The throttle stuck open on the 63 Seagrave that day. Also we made the turn at Orrstown square in front of 11-1. Ask Ged I think he remembers this day. I know I remember dragging a line inside for an attack.

Glad you like the site and thanks for the comments on the fire. That is what will make this thing work better is personel comments and stories. I am assuming from your one comment that you are the person on the far right of the photo?

I have never had the Ward to Shippensburg, it is running and in good shape but I have not driven around in it. I couldn't afford to fill the tank these days.
