You've got the right idea, John - enjoy AM now with the 'run whatcha
brung' approach. You can always build, restore, and enjoy the vintage
gear as you move forward. Just don't get too many projects going at
once or you'll end up like me - frustrated by too little time and too
many other responsibilites. Blech!
