My guess is that even if you know what this is, you don’t see what I see. You see shiny silver shapes? Â You see holes? You see water drops? Maybe you know the bottom of a valve when you see one? Or the threads where a spark plug screws in? Maybe you know that this is a freshly ground head for a Datsun SPL311 racing motor? Maybe not.
I see a much needed day with my dad. I see the top end of the last race motor we will ever build. I see the end of an era. It’s sad, but it also means we can move on to other things. I’m looking forward to more projects with dad, more weekends away in the motorhome with my kids and my parents that don’t involve racing. I’m looking forward to many years of making other kids of memories, and treasuring the ones we’ve already made. It’s a good place to be.
