Having no patents, millions or any means of letting future generations know of my existence, I have decided to get my name in a record book.
I like cars. I like speed. I like the unusual. What better combination of concepts than to combine all three and go after the little looked at Land Speed Record for Steam Powered Cars.

Just curious.... How much are you asking for the Honda?
Love that 72 Honda... Hopefully I'll have my 77 Honda back on the road soon!
The foster and adoptive parents of Hall County extend an invitation to you to attend our 3rd annual car show on April 27th, 2013! The show location is the Hayes Dodge dealership, 3115 Frontage Rd in Gainesville GA from 11:00 to 5:00 with trophies awarded at 4:00.. All the money we collect goes to benefit the children in foster care in our county. We provide care bags when a foster child comes into foster care with all the necessities like a tooth brush and tooth paste and things like a new toy, a blanket... We also provide Christmas gifts for every child in care and we are looking to start up providing a birthday gift for their special day. We need your help to be able to take care of the 130 or so Hall County foster children. Registration is $15 per vehicle. We also welcome venders. Check out our website and see pics of our other car shows at www.lovehopehealing.com! We hope to see you there!!
Actually, I think there are even more than two teams going for the record. Please contact our president, Tom Kimmel, email@example.com (he owns many modern steam vehicles) and tell him Roger sent you. He has the dope on all the teams and will send you a back issue or two of our Bulletin hoping to recruit you as a member.
No steam car here but I am a wannabe!
The foster parents of Hall County would like to invite you to our second annual car show on May 5th at the Hayes Chrysler dealership in Gainesville. All the money that we make will go toward getting every foster child in our county Christmas gifts. Last year we were able to get over 150 children something to open on Christmas morning!!
I have a good mechanic, it's the parts that are hard to find! I have found a few on e-bay and craigslist.
The 77 Honda hopefully will be back on the road soon. Have to get some tires for it. It's been setting for a while, but now ready to get it back on the road! Such a fun car to drive. I'd start out in 1st then put the gear shift to 2nd & gooooooo..... Is there a place you can recommend to get parts? I'll send some pic's later. Like I said, it's been setting awhile! I have had this thing since the late 80's maybe...
What kinf of "Exotic" are you refering to? Our guys have mostly American cars/trucks. We have one Pantera in the group, a '59 Jag and a few Vettes.
Let me know.

btw, I took some pictures of your project about a month ago. I use to read your gas meter.I took the pictures because I have never seen an AZ 600 in person before. small world :)
