Greetings, my name is Scott Bartholomew.
My wife Kelly and my son (almost 1 yr old) and I moved up to Eau Claire, Wisconsin from La Crosse, WI. I have a wonderful wife and as of February 19, 1998, a baby son,William Thomas, was born to us. I am 27 and have been enjoying married life for two years.
My favorite interests are motorcycles, cars, model trains, radio-controlled whatever and music, whether I make it or just listen to it.
I've been riding two wheels for as long as I can remember, both pedal and motorized. Click here to see my anthology of cycles stretching as far back as my first cycle. Otherwise, click here to see my complete Ascot VT500 web site.
A more recent addition to my already time-consuming hobbies is a pair of snowmobiles. I was given a pair of '73&'74 Chaparral sleds ('73 340 Firebird & '74 440 SS/III respectively). Click HERE to see what condition they were in when I acquired them. They each only have about 1000 miles and the engines seem fine as far as comp. goes. They just don't make spark anymore. I have enough body parts to make one complete sled, however the second should function and operate but cosmetically be lacking a hood, windshield and belly pan. How I see it, what things I own kind of forcast the weather in a flip-flop manner. This is the most snow I've seen in this area for YEARS, but the year I get done restoring the sleds, we'll be lucky to have 10" the whole season. The same goes for a snowblower I just purchased the end of January. We haven't had ONE inch since then as well as temps warm enough to melt snow steady for the past week or so. See what I mean? Similar in the sense that it only rains AFTER you've washed your car, etc. Click HERE to check out more on snowmobiles (as well as a photo of what my sleds SHOULD look like).
I've kind of been out of the scene as far as model trains are concerned. Click here to access a page covering model trains.
Cars, automobiles, if it is rare or a classic, heck, I love 'em!
My father once had a '70 Dodge Challenger when I was an infant to about
8 yrs old. It was brilliant metallic blue with a black vinyl top.
318, auto, AM, no big frills but I fell in love with it from the get go.
It was a sad day when I rode with him to the salvage yard and he dumped
it off for only $50!!! Hell, I had that much in my savings!
I begged him to keep it in the back yard, that way I'd have it when I get
my license in years to come. Nope. Oh well, I still want one
someday, slant six or whatever--I just want one!!! Click

I love radio-controlled vehicles....cars, buggies, monster trucks, motorcycles (yes, motorcycles), planes, heli's, tanks, just about anything that can be controlled via radio transmitter. My greatest love is Racing Trucks, i.e. RC-T2 or T3, Losi XXT, LXT. Click here to visit my R/C page.
I also love music. Just about any kind (except for country--SORRY!), classical, jazz, new age, rock, heavy metal, hard rock, pop (sometimes--80's mostly). I've also performed music in the past both in high school as well as an rock/alternative band. If you haven't had enough of my personal interests, check it out.
