    Hey Zeb:

    Look, you make a good point. I'll do my best to check in from time to time. I'm always interested in sharing whatever I know when anyone interested.

    Cheers,

    Mark S. Gustavson

    Well, I may be well known, but I'm sure about the rest of it! Still, thanks for your generous note!

    Cheers,

    Hi Brian:

    Thanks for your note. Your beautiful custom Mercury is still in great shape and on display in the Museum (I hope my memory has served me well here).

    I trust you are well.

    Cheers,

    Hey Lee:

    Thanks for your note. How your version of the Dream Truck 2 coming along? You've done a great job with the model. My version is coming along really well.

    Hope you're safe these days. Take care of yourself.

    Cheers,

    I know I don't post too much here, though Gregg and I have been friends for decades. I find myself spread pretty thin with the Museum and GSL. Still, if you don't wish to assist, I can understand that. My reason for posting was to ask for help with machined donations for the Museum so that we can keep our doors open. I am not asking for anything that would benefit me. My only goal in posting the plea for help was to benefit the Museum.

    I have a proposal: You come to GSL this year, and check out the Museum, and then you let me know how you would go about asking for help to keep the Museum's doors open. At that point, if you think that I've asked for too much, then we can talk.

    My best wishes to you and everyone on this board.

    Cordially,

    Mark S. Gustavson


    quote="zebm1"]Seems as tho, to me at least.....that Mercari is not exciting much response. I have a question for yall. Do yall think that maybe Mercari shuld post a few messages in tha room, before he can expect us to gratuitously acquiesce to his pleadings for donations?

    After all, none of us can expect to continue in life where we were, if we only rest our futures on our past laurels, then don't we slowly turn into tha dust of tha past, don't yall think? I mean I have witnessed Mercari's equals in here, and they have enuff time in their lives to spend a few minutes of their lives in Gregg's room.

    Just my opinion, I know that there are several excellent machinists who count themselves as club members who could do as Mercari asks, but in my opinion, he asks to much for so little......

    next.....

    Urgent Request: Model car machinists list? Can you help me?
    I'd be grateful for your list of model car machinists. I want to approach each to ask for a donation to the Museum benefit auction that we conduct at each GSL.

    Please give me the name and addy and snail mail address at your first convenience.

    Many thanks for your help, my friends!

    See you all at GSL!

    Cheers,

    Hello everyone:
    I have just logged on here and wanted to say "hello" to everyone. Like others, I'm here because Gregg and Dan Baker said this was a great place to post.

    I hope to post tips here, and give away putty like I've done elsewhere. I'm working on a major project right now, so my time visiting will be limited, but I'll drop by from time to time.

    Remember, throw some putty!

    Cheers,

    Mark S. Gustavson
