    I had never had a magazine feature or even a little picture in show coverage until last year. Now my truck shows up everywhere! Not bragging, just sharing.

    It's NOT ' Bragging '....

    ...If you can back it up and YOU certainly can ! :p .

    I think your buildup would make a great colored book and sell quite a few copies .

    I have been kicking around the idea of a book devoted to ADs.....and a few G's.

    I have found pictures on several sites, myself. I made some dash cards
    [​IMG]
    I have seen pictures of these cards all the way in the midwest in pictures from car shows. Cool, huh?

    Feel free to print out and distribute if you want. It is my anti establishment protest against high dollar snobby show rods.

    I was at Goodguys and saw a guy giving a kid hell about touching his car when the kid was trying to get a look inside. I called the kid over and threw him my keys, let him start it, sit in it, whatever, because it is a REAL truck and he wsn't going to hurt it, I made shure to say loudly enough for the old fart to hear. So, I decided to make these.

    Yesterdays heroes . Great way of dealing with this kid.

    Great way you treated the kid Russ and it gave the father something else to think about hopefully ?????

    I`d like the idea that something grows out of daily experiences and becomes something like your card with a striking message on it.

    Thanks Russ.:)

    Reading the title I thought you were going to get some sleeves done, but the book sounds really good. Go for it.

    That looks like fun Russ ! .

    Are you allowed to ' Let It Out ' when you're on the track ? .

    It'd be fun to do that and see just what an old I6 is capable of doing .

    Not really allowed to, but we do anyway. It is a lot of fun, they do it Sat. night at Goodguys. They have pace cars that try to keep you around 60.........But if you hang back you can get a run going. I've been around 90mph in my truck, around 120 in a Vega street/drag car.
