    wheels & tars

    Saw a pretty nice skywagon this weekend,
    with 10" Grove wheels & double-puck brakes,
    and 850x10 Desser smoothies.
    Looked like a pretty nice set-up.

    I don't buy thius.
    The Continental C145/O300 has the carb bolted to the sump, just like the Lyc 320,
    and they are very prone to carb ice in some airplanes.

    I've always liked full stocked (aka "mannlicher stock") rifles.
    What is that, and what caliber?
