April 25th Newsletter

  Hi Everyone,

Ok, is it just me or is the year flying by, I mean I can't believe it's almost May!! But to look at the positive, that means that car show season is really gonna be heating up. I'd also like to take a minute to send a THANK YOU out to Archie for sending us those great pics of his (well, his wife's) '49 Willeys Wagon. I really like this little wagon, and I bet Mrs. Archie likes it a lot too. You can see the pics on our FACEBOOK.
