You cannot post photos on the list that is why we get
all those truncated messages but you can insert a link
to them. please e-mail some to me or just put them up
on one of you sites and refer us to them as I am sure
many would like to see both of your racers OJ and
AGNS. I am also looking for that electric lawn mower
we talked about

Hey Shawn

Why not post them to the EV photo album?

BTW Love hearing about your awesome increases 8^)

If nothing else I'd be more than happy to post some
for you at my site, just let me know.

Hey everyone,

There are some photos of AGNuS and OJ at

http://www.powerofdc.com/gallery.html

These were taken in June.

There is a video at the top of the page (taken in the pits) and at
the bottom are some close up shots of the bike and the dragster.

There are also photos of the bike and the dragster on the NEDRA site,
on the 100 mph Club and on the home page at various places.

At some point I plan to add more pictures of Shawn's great rides in
the NEDRA Photo Gallery

Thanks Keith,

I'll send you some photos of both. The mower project has taken many
unexpected turns but all for the better. I'll have something I can
share with the public very soon.

Shawn
