      This is a man after my own heart. Its more fun to play with the beat up old cars, and make them work, than to buy a brand new one.

      Are you also writing or doing anything else on Kall Out Kings? I saw you in the video when Finnegan made his fastest pass.

      I will have to admit that I want going to watch this video. I really didn't think that I would enjoy it. However, I am glad to say it played during my drive home. I enjoy listening to this show while I drive. No, I don't watch. Anyways it was way more entertaining than I would have ever suspected.

      It was in the third issue of Roadkill magazine I believe. They killed that magazine a little over a year ago now. -JD

      Hey, thanks for dumping 7 gallons of motor oil into the environment so you could have a lark... asshole.

      +Sally's Speed Shop What would you think if I told a story about me and my buddies on a road trip where we tried to eat as much junk food as we could and then through the garbage out the window? At least the garbage that we through out the window into the environment would eventually break down. The 7 gallons of oil will be there forever, as a testament to what a piece of shit you are.
