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.

Gotta love finding car guys in strange places. One of our sewer project contractors has two garages with different 55 Chevys.

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."
