Nicely stated, Bill. I grew up taking things apart and putting them back together again, sometimes, with changes that I knew would improve the design, and sometimes with changes that were total mistakes. I learned how things worked that way.

Maintaining and improving my vehicles has always been a way to make the vehicle "mine", not just something that I was going to discard in the next month.

Like you, I despair in the way we have outsourced everything to other countries. We still hold an edge in "design", but I fear that will soon be lost too.

At 80 years of age, I won't be around too much longer to see the fall, if it comes. I hope, for the Country, that some of our bright young citizens can turn this around!
