Re: Building a shop in my back yard in Sacramento SIMPLE

I never figured that this shop would get this number of viewer (14,150). Seems there was lots of interest. Hope everyone that viewed enjoyed the subject. My 30-31 AA is in storage in Louisiana. All the A's I have here in Sacramento is My L-31 Deluxe-coupe. :D :) :) :) Shelby, Sacramento
