    Van was known as 'Short Cut'
    High tec rods.....elements of the past and the future combining to make something not quite as good as either.

    One of the cars that started it all for me (at 7 years old) spoke to the owner a couple of years ago at the Nats and he was trying to get the monkey bike and trailer off Baldy
