It wasn't very large
There was just enough room to cram the drums
In the corner over by the Dodge
It was a fifty-four
With a mashed up door
And a cheesy little amp
With a sign on the front said "Fender Champ"
And a second hand guitar
It was a Stratocaster with a whammy bar

1953 Indian Roadmaster Chief
$39,000


So it's true, you can buy a real Indian motorcycle for just a little more than a coke-bottle engined knock off.

It's good know the Americans once built cars on the par with the European best. Why don't they any more?

Probably the same reason Harley made a billion dollars over the last 20 years and Ducati and MV got bought out and refinanced 15 times.

That was Joe's first confrontation with The Law.
Naturally, we were easy on him.
One of our friendly counselors gave him
A do-nut... and told him to
Stick closer to church-oriented social activities.

Speaking of Zappa- Has anyone seen the ZPZ tour? The boy has done the daddy proud. I have seen both Atl shows. The first one with Vai and Bozzio was good enough to buy the video. The second one (just past) was at a smaller venue and it was spot on Frank. Dweezle has taken something old and revived it with fresh blood. He made a comment about how happy he was because there were many parents with kids in tow at the show. Seems the kids had a great time, too. Who'd a thunk?
If the tour passes by your neighborhood I suggest getting a ticket. Frank left the world with a huge library of music to enjoy- So LISTEN DAMMIT! Kinda puts things back right with your own personal chi.

I've owned a "european best" which frequently needed a "european best mechanic" and "european most expensive parts". Never again.
