    When our little family bought our first computer, and I started fooling around with this "online stuff", and "discovered" there were car related sites, this Willys Coupe on Hotrodders.Com, was immediately one of my favorite cars. I had always been a Tri-Five Chevrolet guy, but this Willys became a dream car to me. It was also a source of information for the GM, single and dual range Hydra-Matics, aka, HYDRO'S. That was a long time ago.
    I am Butch/56sedandelivery.

    Many people call me asshole. Sometimes to my face. I've worked hard all my life to live up to that. I consider myself a professional.
    But didn't think that was the best choice for a screen name.
    Hence, the other nickname.

    Not a hamber because he is long passed away, his last name was Russick. He put it on his personal license plate and was instantly a Doctor.. it was assumed to read “Are you sasick”... he always had a laugh about it. I’m sure here his monicker would be RUSSICK!

    alphabet soup

    When people see my last name...Przybylowicz. Most times they say that looks like the alphabet. A couple of my buddies even call me Gene Alphabet. Then, one night I was making a list of all the different cars (about 18) that gave up parts for my '40 build. My wife walked by and said every letter in the alphabet must be on that list. Just like the soup. And so, Alphabet Soup came to mind. Gene.

    I always loved drag racing and once I was able to scrounge enough money to do so I built a 66 Fairlane with a 428 SCJ, it took every penny I could to put it together and was a monster. We went up to Milan Mich for the big Ford race and as I went through the traps it let loose. The piston and rod made a huge hole in the side of the block, I was heart broken my good friend Rich was racing his car with me and provided a tow back to the pits. When he showed up at the end of the track he said what happened? I said piston broke, he said yea I know you are but what happened to the car. We both laughed and it stuck with me for 35 years.

    Name of the funniest and hardest working black farm hand that ever worked for us. Boodlum was legendary. Could break any piece of farm equipment he used. Tractors too - kept another black guy named Lawyer working just to fix Boodlum's messes. But Boodlum was a strong guy and worked sunup to sundown and never complained too much. When I was eight years old and put in the fields to learn how to farm Boodlum kept an eye on me - my grandmother told him to.
    Boodlum was a piece of work. Introduced me to local black bootleggers, hobos and others.
    Showed me where to put a couple dollars in an old cast iron stove in the town trash dump and in the morning there would magically appear some beers or cheap red wine. Get a buzz before school started.
    ETA: Our crew of farm hands:
    Napolean - field boss
    Sharp - first photo of me is a baby in his wife Annie's arms
    me - "lil 'yuma" the white boy
    come cotton picking season we hired more seasonal hands

    Man trying saying that real fast three times in a row. The one thing you can say about Poles they do have colorful names. Served in the Corps with a Przybylowicz his family was from Lowicz Poland I believe, he was very proud of that.
