    Another month gone by, another mail call... Most of these images were just attached to emails I've gotten recently, but a few come from way back when. Enjoy...

    Who is that in the flathead pic? There's gotta be some good stories behind the Cher and cockroaches comment....

    That would have been Wilbur in that Flatty pic.

    That was the first fire of the Grimlok roadster. Neat car.

    Hey Ryan,
    Could you fire me off a copy of that pic, it would make a good print ofr the office wall. Good memories from that day.

    That pic from your grandpa's garage is awesome! As much as I love slammed cars, that Willy's looks kinda sad. It needs the nose back in the air. And what's up with the blown engine? I wanna know more!
