Ken Adams, while living in NJ, had done some projects with, among others, Jim Caldwell (later a production manager at Fountain). He had a reputation as a top craftsman. However, he had moved to South Carolina in the interim, and after a lengthy search, we found him in the woods wrestling bears....After a series of meetings he agreed to come back to civilization...or at least to a town...and we started in Monck's Corner, South Carolina... and later moved to countrypolitan, St. Stephens, SC. He also produced Quest Racing OPC tunnel boats....and the original Jaguar plug during the Conquest years.

The rest is history....or at least an old story.

Never heard of Love'n it....Here are your choices.

1) Original...... Love it..Last seen in NJ

2) Second...... Love It.... Last seen in Calif.

3.) Love it Again...... Last seen in Florida

Boats 1 and 2 were light blue and yellow

Boat 3 was dark blue and white

These are the original gel coat colors and I believe all have been re painted.

Is this Rolling thunder a shadow? If not what is it? I saw it in the ex-race boats thread.
