Here, scrape off this undercoating while sitting on the floor in this dark, crowded refrigerator of a garage...
Colin Chapman stopped by and said: "What in the name of stale biscuits are you doing?"

I didn't weigh the resulting piles, but Ondayko would be proud.
Speaking of whom, I need to have a word with him for putting ideas in Rob's head.

When I can use my arms again (I'm typing this with my nose), I'm gonna slap him with a haggis :lol:

haggis:
/ˈhaɡəs/
noun: haggis; plural noun: haggis; plural noun: haggises

a Scottish dish consisting of a sheep's or calf's offal mixed with suet, oatmeal, and seasoning and boiled in a bag, traditionally one made from the animal's stomach.

Haggis is a savoury pudding containing sheep's pluck (heart, liver, and lungs); minced with onion, oatmeal, suet, spices, and salt, mixed with stock, and cooked while traditionally encased in the animal's stomach though now often in an artificial casing instead. According to the 2001 English edition of the Larousse Gastronomique: "Although its description is not immediately appealing, haggis has an excellent nutty texture and delicious savoury flavour".

It is believed that food similar to haggis (though not so named)—perishable offal quickly cooked inside an animal's stomach, all conveniently available after a hunt—was eaten from ancient times.

Although the name "hagws" or "hagese" was first recorded in England c. 1430, the dish is considered traditionally of Scottish origin. It is even the national dish, as a result of Scots poet Robert Burns' poem Address to a Haggis of 1787. Haggis is traditionally served with "neeps and tatties", boiled and mashed separately, and a dram (a glass of Scotch whisky), especially as the main course of a Burns Supper.

It's yummy! :D

Years ago I remember seeing Jay Leno eat haggis on The Tonight Show. He made a huge deal about the ingredients. I can also remember thinking that I would like to try some!

It sounds gross, but is actually pretty decent. I've been to Scotland a couple times and had it.

Once we actually get this car to a 24 Hours of Lemons race we will be in the correct attire and I'll serve haggis. :wink:

I'll just have to be creative...

Posted in 2015: TRADITIONAL Scottish haggis has been banned in the USA for 44 years, for reasons that most people have forgotten.
IMPORTS of traditional Scottish haggis have been banned in the United States since 1971.

The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) has long objected to one of the key ingredients in haggis – sheep’s lung.

No food for human consumption, whether made locally in the USA or imported from overseas, can contain sheep’s lung.

Authentic haggis is a savoury pudding containing sheep’s pluck – the heart, liver and lungs – minced with onions, spices and oatmeal. This is often encased in a casing made of the animal’s stomach.

For aficionados and fans of Robert Burns, the haggis is the ‘great chieftain o’ the pudding race’.

SIGN OUR PETITION TO #FREETHEHAGGIS HERE at change.org/freethehaggis

However American food watchdogs disagree.

Their long-standing reluctance to allow sheep lungs into human food was reinforced in 1971 with the emergence of ‘Scrapie’ in sheep and other cattle.

However there is no scientific evidence to indicate that scrapie poses a risk to human health or indeed evidence that it has ever passed into our food chain.

In the 1990s the US also banned beef imports from the EU following the spread of Bovine SpongiformEncephalopathy (BSE), mad cow disease, in Europe.

But earlier this year America lifted the beef ban.

Douglas Scott, chief executive from the Scottish Federation of Meat Traders, says: "There is no evidence anywhere that haggis could pose a risk.

"Scottish butchers cannot send haggis to customers relatives in the Units States like to do across Europe and Ireland, despite the demand for this iconic product."

Big smiles here... I have had haggis (shipped from Scotland) 3-4 times at my friend's house over the years.

I like the typing with the nose and slap you with a haggis visuals...

Lou

Adam lured me over to the garage again yesterday... :roll: :lol:
I say lured, because I'm supposed to be focused on the Challenger. I'm taking it up to Howard's this weekend. (Yes, Greg. I will get your roller rockers...)

I had the propane heater at the house and it was somewhere in the 20s, so I figured Adam could use some heat. :shock: :lol:

Adam put in a 220 outlet for my big Hobart MIG welder (and his TIG welder). We got a couple base plates cut and started to install them for the subframe connectors when a wire for the trigger broke. It's been moved around quite a bit since I bought it in Arizona last year with the locost project. It's a $15 part. The welder works really well.

Sounds great, Rob and Adam! If doing SFCs, I suggest light wt aluminum floor sheet metal to keep wt down. That was the biggest diff between the 64 EV Dart and the 64 Valiant at Barber. Dart is maybe 200 lbs heavier and you could feel it.

Glad you'll be coming back Joe. I'd hate to lose ya! :D

We will do everything we can to add lightness in other areas to offset the added steel, Lou. :wink:

Hey Joe! You still got them scrapers handy? :lol:

Tell ya what Lou,... I'm even willing to swap over to Lexan & gut the doors & such. Okey Dokey? :mrgreen:
