    heh happy birthday dude you are in good company. i dig holly and the crickets, moon has good taste too in a T. wonder if the ole deuce was just as popular in his day i know during the 70s the T was hit its peak probably in popularity.
    also it got to see some of the most cartoonish fab T;s ever.

    I believe that is an Ace, something they made after the cobra. It has a 428 stuffed in it.

    I knew that would be in here somewhere , cuz , I woulda done it had it not been in here....:D
  23. Correct, but it's actually called an AC Frua 428. Basically a 428 Cobra in an Italian body. Built from '68 to '71 roughly. One like it was on fleabay recently.
  24. Died in the same apartment. Fittingly Keith Moon had just come back from seeing the movie "The Buddy Holly Story" when he OD'd

    What I win???

    interesting about him and the apartment.. lots of good people got lost in the party during this time period.

    SRV i wish i was old enough to have gone to one of his concert.. but no way in hell unless i was living in texas at the time. you lucky texans. i just wish main stream music would of not gone down the road it did.. stupid producers and their boy bands and sampling... grr.. happy birthday people.. you all rock. guitar solo.

    if i was gonna get ran over.. id hope it was by a rolls at least and not some POS ford pinto with a dent in the right front fender.. i hope you are rusting away in some pos land fill you cock roach.
