I agree, that was one of the few things that I have ever seen in my life, animate or not, that made my spine tingle. Literally EVERYTHING is cut on the engine. The gears, the crank, the gas line, the tank, the sideshaft, the bevel gears, EVERYTHING. And he never cut completely through one piece, except for 1 or 2 places. Not only that, but if you look real close, you can see weld beads on the flywheel rim where someone welded it back together. What you can't see in the picture is that those welds are some of the nastiest boogered up messes you will ever see. According to Buzz, someone actually tried to run the engine afterward. That's almost as scary, is it not?

Well Wayne, I would have, but... I figured it was best to not take a photo of her. Guys have gotten beat up for just looking at another guy's girl and I figured a photo would push even nice old Mr. Langdon over the edge

However, I did get video of you giving away Les's 25
