We've been working on this big local account for years and I wanted to cold-turkey my way in the front door and everybody at the office said I didn't have a chance. Well I went anyways late this afternoon hoping for a sympathetic and bored employee. Guy walking out and locking the place up does a triple take as I rumble into the parking lot. Turns out he owns a 1970 AMC Javelin Mark Donohue edition! We chatted AMC's for a bit and I showed him the engine and he invited me back first thing Monday to talk to the Ops Manager. HA HA!

I told SWMBO but she won't give me credit until they place an order.

Much like the story of getting a Lotus in the Bond movies...the movie bigwigs wouldn't give Lotus the time of day, so they stripped the badges off a car and parked it out front of the studio, and everyone came out to look. Then the same bigwigs came out and asked what this car was...

i believe the exact words were "If you can survive a weekend with the Hongs, you're just the kind of guy we're looking for. They seem like a dangerous bunch."
