Jabo and Dave McCullogh does it right,open arms. At what other factory can you get this kind of tour. I have spent several days and hours here by myself and with many friends. I am always ready to go back. The WVMCC has always had a group tour the Jabo factory during WVMCC show week. This spring should be no different.
