  • I was at Sima 87-89 I started in the lagging shop then transferred to the boiler shop. It looks like everyone drove those vans they had me drive them for over 6 months they always put me in the big white van that thing was junk. I worked in the lagging shop hey Brian do you remember the boxing gloves in the lagging shop if I remember right Cox tagged you good. Is this the Stillwell that drove the hog with a bicycle horn on it? I remember the beer truck at the party.
