A bit of good news......

 

Hello, guys. I'm proud to announce that Gasser Madness has returned.

Here is what I've written on the front page of www.gassermadness.us
We lost our friend Byron Stack a little over a year ago, but his work -- Gasser Madness -- lives on. The site files took quite a beating during a computer crash at the Draglist offices a few months ago, but we have found most of them and are going to try to recreate the rest. Bear with us as we try to patch this beast back together to make the next round.

Thanks to all of Byron's friends for the encouragement and thanks to Byron's family for asking us to bring the site back. Once we get 'er up and stabilized, we will begin looking for contributions for new material. I know there still are a lot of broken links... we will get 'em fixed if we can. Thanks again and RIP Byron... we got this on your behalf and it won't be fading away...

As noted, some files were lost in the transition, but I have a link to the older sites from the 'Wayback Machine' and will commence recreating those. I would say we are 70 to 80 percent back, if not more.

Please tell all your friends far and wide that the site URL is now gassermadness.us as gassermadness.com was snatched by a Russian Trucking Company. Please change all links on your sites and inform your pals on message boards and other sites to change their links. I'd appreciate you all helping to get the word out.

Bill Pratt, Curator
Byron's Gasser Madness

That is excellent news.

Gasser Madness is an invaluable resource for anyone planning a gasser build and this resurrected site will stand as a memorial to Byron's enthusiasm.

Bill - I just went to your site for the first time and was impressed with the amount of info there.  I've been wanting to subscribe to Gasser Magazine for quite some time. Which is better - Gasser Mag or Gasser Wars?

I noticed I've already LIKED Gasser Madness.

I used to subscribe to both Gasser Wars and Gasser Mag since I was at the Gasser Reunion in Thompson back in '03. Both good mags, but now I only get Gasser Magazine and I'm happy with it.
