Great to see this car being restored. Living in Fla, it's difficult to visit as often as I'd like to. Looking forward to seeing it in IC colors on my [...]

That might be a bit too much bridge. Measuring it on Google Maps makes it out to be around 102 feet. Using the same tools, the UP bridge at the river [...]

Hi Matt We estimate the costs for installing 100 amp 240 volt stand by service would be between $2500 to $3000. Our shop is now designated area of [...]
