    Joey, Congrats on a year of bringing us the schtuff we love! You've kicked ass ever since you agreed to hop in a death trap with some weird drunk guy to terrorize the ghetto! I spent too much time dealing with Ogle County as well.....lets not do that again!

    Field Reporter, Wow. Does that come with a raise? Just kidding, can't believe all those great posts came in such a short time. Remember Jimmy Olson was a cub reporter and his pal was Superman!
     
  15. Joey, I dig your writing style....You are definitely an asset to the Journal. It was a good year...thanks!

    Your writing is terrible and you should really get a photo journalism student to take the pictures for you. You probably don't even like pizza. Get a real job, you slacker.

    Good read as always. Next time you have a problem with Ogle Co. let us know, we know the Sheriff who is also our town mayor.

    Thanks for all the kind words, guys. You all rule.

    And Chris,

    That car was the predecessor to this machine (pictured below) and run by the Hollish Bros. from Akron, Ohio. The two ran the same blown Olds motor. I was going to include it in the "Function Over Form" article, but it didn't make the cut.
