... stopped by today.

Of course, it was "Mr.,what can you do for me?" Jerry Kulich.

It took 37 years but he finally did something for Mike, and helped marshal the Hardbody race. Lol.

Jerry is so quick for 74 years old, my camera can't even get him in focus, when he's moving.

Yeah Steve, that's him.

I wish I had a dollar, for everytime, he ended a story of (his) good fortune, with, "God bless America".

He's dead set, no opposite pun intended, to live as long as he can, to spend his $$$, or at least enjoy checking his portfolio. Lol

Along with converting the basement of his huge townhouse, into a gym, he also talks about becoming a vegetarian.

How could a manufacturer of slot cars retain such a sense of humor? I remember racing at his tracks, and anytime a gear

on a car was going bad, someone would say "It sounds like a bad gear". Jerry would say, "It sounds like $3.95 to me".
