    I have always wanted to see one of these films but never got around to it. I have put them on the -mas list from the wife so hopefully I will get a few soon. Looks good.
  3. the dvd is really great - packed full of footage of the Kookie car/Lightnin Bug - I'm really amazed at all the home movies and clips of it - so cool that Franco has put out his whole big archive of this car for everyone to see. Definitely get yourself a copy, guys...

    Thanks Ryan for the post and Thanks fellas for always supporting what I do..I really am a lucky guy to be able to do what I want and bring new stuff to my Society.. This DVD came out allot better that thought.. When Franco approched me and said "Hey I got all this stuff I collected on the Kookie car we should do a DVD about it" at first I was into it..but didn't know the extent of Franco's obsession...He had collected every little thing the car was in..From TV shows to Comic Books he had it all... But what really gave me chills was the Home Movies (Color 16mm) that Norm gave Franco in the 70's. Franco had it devolped and what was on there was an amazing collection of all the versions of the car. (See Trailer above) I think the DVD would of been grate with out it...But this is what really makes the DVD SHINE!!!

    On top of that I was able to capture Franco building the Lighnin' Bug clone in several diffrent's neat to go from the history of the car to the process of the new car being built.

    The Car That Ate MY Brain is what really happened to Von Franco....hahahaah

    I want to thank my Little Buddy Von Franco for talking me into this and its always a pleasure working with him on these DVDs..

    I want to Thank Norm for being a nut case..I can't wait till he see it..

    and I want to than Keith Weesner for the art work
