Hustle Muscle

As some of you might know, Hustle Muscle has been at the Northtown Diesel Shops over the last week undergoing routine maintenance and inspections.  Unfortunately during the inspections it was found the Hustle Muscle has incurred a catastrophic engine failure, a broken crankshaft in two different locations.

The Hustle Muscle committee is looking into various options for Hustle Muscle and we will report those options as well as any board action back to the membership in the near future.
