'Da Tikiman want to chekitout - o.k., where the hell is this spot? I-90...Ohio??, MI??, IL?? I'll have a look & tell you all what's what. if i like what i see, maybe give it a shot with a circa 1970, ultra-classic, absolutely one-of-a-kind, 7'0" double-wing pin "Falsa"...(courtesy of the Bahne Bros.)
