It's not big news these days but back when I was a kid it was really big stuff! This one was all the rage back then!

I keep an eye on SCTA land speed stuff. Having been on the crew for a streamliner as a teenager, that place is in my blood now.

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.
