Yeah, the car is just decor to them so they don't care about your time. I won't do anything like that again.

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.

Thank you, Guys, for your support.
I'm not an emotional guy, but I staggered a wee bit at that blow.
And Dutch, I told all my friends how famous I'd be and how I wouldn't change.
The TV people had a pretty good excuse and I believe them. They had a hard time rescuing the car just before mine and it took an extra day to shoot that wreck, so they had no time left for my story and 'no sale' car. They knew they weren't going to get my Super Bee.

Iíve got a couple of friends that rent out a couple of their cars to the movie folks in Georgia. One of them will stay on set all day, sometimes they even get to do the driving. They get pretty good money most of the time, their 66 Fairlane has been in several movies and music videos. They are careful to check out which offers they get, if they canít stay on set within sight of the car they decline to go. One bunch wanted to pick up their Bronco and bring it back that night, yeah, right. Theyíd probably never saw it again, so they told them to pound sand, only way is if they come with the car, otherwise, no dice. Itís not a steady income, but seems to pay good when they get a gig.
