I pass through Lodi, CA fairly often, but rarely when Bill Bechtold's shop is open or when I am not in a hurry. I dropped in hoping to find a local parts source in case i break anything and see what he had. Good thing I hade 3 hours to spare. Quite an impressive collection as I am sure some of you know, and Bill and Doug took the time to show us everything.

I don't always have nothing to say, but when I do, I say it on Facebook.

I'm no braggart but I just saw Mr. Ed Bezanson's collection. It's both stunning and an education, it includes I think, a Lamborghini (no not a car). A crawler.
