George,

It seems painfully clear that we need Uncle Albert and the history thereof to become a topic of study until we have all the facts and numbers sorted out. I need to talk to him. I may ask if we can get the whole story before it's too late.

OK, I'm confused. What is an "A" frame? Can a frame built in 2000 be an "A" frame? Are "A" frames "A" frames because of how they're made or when they're made? Or both? Obviously, frames with "Limited" decals are not "A" frames but what's the difference.

George Allen with, I think, a 1973 "A" frame and a 1999 "I know not what" in Lexington, KY USA
