was pretty much a non-event.
I still have the busted gear doors hanging on the wall in my garage.
Mixmasters (err Skymasters are way cool!) Which gear failed? the Mains or the nose?
Look, I can appreciate this. I was young too, I felt just like you. Hated authority, hated all my bosses, thought they were full of shit. Look, it's like they say, if you're not a rebel by the age of 20, you got no heart, but if you haven't turned establishment by 30, you've got no brains. Because there are no story-book romances, no fairy-tale endings. So before you run out and change the world, ask yourself, "What do you really want?"
