Phillip, congratulations on the retirement. I've found that I am busier now than before retirement. "Requests" for assistance from just the family to help them out with things quadrupled! HR people would always say, before you decide to retire just make sure you will have things to do........not a problem in my case. I can tell you I would welcome some down time.
As for replacing original parts I always like to try and fix/repair them than replace but I can understand installing new things when parts are just too far gone. Especially when the repair looks worse than it did before.
CRG speedway.......I like it! Has a great sound to it
Now that you are the meet chair I know that we will be attending the best spring and fall shows yet! No pressure there......right? Hey, with the new position it won't keep you from wearing your CRG shirt will it?
