A soon as the freezing weather goes south, I aim to letter his name on the side of the hood.

Being that same era, my tastes have slowed down a bit.

P. S. Just figued out how to do this ONBC Board Style and I have to say I like the background colors. Very soothing.

I have to say when I read in the book that they were driving a stock car the view I had was not the view as it is supposed to be. Stock car racing and banger racing over here usually invokes pictures in the mind of old wrecked cars racing round a track and bashing into each other. Rally cars on the other hand invoke a whole different picture. High speed turbo charged cars racing round country forested tracks at high speed in mud, rain and snow. So my vision of the car that Antoine drives in the book is the former not the latter which left me rather puzzled :lol:

We call those Destruction Derbys over here, GG where drivers go crashing into each other and the last one running wins.
