Happy Birthday to a guy who looks like he hasn't aged more than a couple years since the '60s.  :shok:

Happy, happy birthday, Howie, my friend. I've heard the same thing over the years that I have not changed a bit.

 

We both have snow on our roofs. Maybe that's what keeps us cool. Have a wonderful day and life.

When the only tool you have is a hammer, everything is a nail.
Support your local raceway, or you won't have one.
Slot cars are quad-pods.
Support your "Local Racer."
