    What if Leo still owned Fender in 1967 and the competition was making a dent in the bottom line? What would Leo have done about it? Maybe he would have built a Monterey model? Let's go back to 1967 Marty.

    Thanks!

    That was a pseudo adaptation take on a Back to the Future Quote... I'll see if there is room in the DeLorean. I have plenty of garbage...:)

    Thanks. The odds that the Shapeoko 2 will be operational is probably pretty good towards the end of the challenge. I still have to order motors and am working on some structural parts to add more wheels.

    I kind of liked '67 too. One of those magical years as a young teen.

    I'm going to wire the dogs and cats here in series and pet them when the humidity is low here. It is totally doable.

    I'm just learning about the '67 expo and the "quiet revolution" that Charles De Gaulle sparked in socials... Man I feel young.

    LOL...Somewhere in the home archives here, is a photo taken in the late 1950's of DeGaulle's Limo going by our broken down Hudson Hornet on the Washington Capital Beltway, enroute to or from a meeting with President Eisenhauer. The Secret Service was not happy with my father..... like he had planned it.
