Default Re: I dreamed I rode to Kansas City

There was a kid I knew when I was about that age who had an older brother. In those days I had become interested in small gas .049 COX engines. I had a line controlled plane, and he had a race car.

I was having a very hard time figuring out how to get it started. When I met him he was running his race car in the street. It had no control what so ever. You just started it, and let go till it hit something and wrecked. It had the same .049 engine I had. His brother had taught him how to get it started, and so he taught me. The secret was in how much priming. Not too much, not too little. From that day on I've always seemed to have a green thumb for gas motors.

The only thing is we were here in Dallas. I have no connection to KC.
