Geezer Talk: The Ancient and Early Years of RC, etc..

A few of us decided we wanted a place where us "mature veterans" of RC and model building could talk about "old stuff". We are old guys talking about old stuff and we like it that way.......so don't give us any guff! And no baloney either.

Now that we know the rules......( loosely defined by design )

Who remembers Ed "big daddy" Roth and his crazy art works?
