Default Surprise at the post office today

I got a surprise today. I recently sold one of my more recent creations to a couple in New Hampshire. They took it home, tweaked it and entered it into it's first car show. They said there more about 250 cars and they won 1st place. Tickled the shit outta' me! They sent me the trophy, and I added it my other Model A 'stuff'. I write about this speedster as one of my 'Top Ten Builds' stories in my new book 'I Was A NASCAR Redneck. Signed copies of the book are available here: www.nascarredneck.com


I was unable to upload the pictures. I think I remembered how to do it, but the 'insert all' command did not work for some reason. Help???

It was a nice gesture of them to send you the trophy.

Will, you probably did not go into advanced edit mode.

Man, the more I think about it, the more I think about it.

Build a car, sell it and STILL get 1st place trophies in the mail without even trying.. I'm not sure Jim has even done that yet. (?)

That's why RockHillWill is an actual legend and we're still trying. Very cool.
