all started when I was 16. I drove up to a radio station in the
suburbs of Washington D.C. to ask, how do you get into radio?
receptionist wasn't at the desk so I strolled around and ended
up in the studio area. I heard two legendary voices, I looked
through the glass and it was the Great "Joy Boys" Willard
Scott and Ed Walker, live on the air! After watching those two

feeling comes right through the speakers and into your car on
the ride home!
passion and hobby is restoring American Muscle Cars. Who would
have thought some of those cars from the seventies would command
the price they do today?
me after starring at computers for hours, there is nothing like
sandblasting, welding and painting an old "rust bucket"
and turning into a thing of beauty!
