Movies from the past!

Here is a cool movie that was posted in the Jalopy Journal that I found just awesome. It shows the hot rods of the past and how they were actually built.

The only difference is, they were much cheaper back then.

Sit back and enjoy. I know I did.

Veterans Day

Dont forget, today is Veterans Day. If you know a Veteran, see one on the street, or while having coffee, tell them thanks for what they have done! I am a Veteran of the US Navy (1989-1997) and very proud of it! I want to personnally salute each and every one of them...Thank you for the Freedom that I have the priveldge to live each and every day in this great country of ours... And a huge thank you for the sacrifice(s) made each and every day for me. Think about that...for you, and for me, for each and every one of us.

If these videos dont make you shed a tear and make your hearts warm over, then please...check yourself. Without these brave men and women, the USA would not be what it is today. I am so proud to be an American.

I was watching the 3rd video and my beautiful daughter asked what it was. I couldn't help not to cry like a child trying to explain to her about it. I ate my throat.

SALUTE!!!! to all Veterans out there and God Bless you all!
