This is a little anecdote that was recently published on another forum and I thought some of you might enjoy reading it and seeing the pictures.

Great story, Matt. Well-written and very interesting.

Wow Matt, life has been good. Not to detract from the fishing but as a "60's" muscle car enthusiast that must have been quite a change in life going from the GTO to the VW. Anyway great story.
