Hey, that site says I'm popular! :headbang

That video was from a Friday Night Cruise in last year in Downers Grove, IL. I get around. :)
Car didn't make it back home from Chicagoland. :(
3 weeks and two tows later, it made it back, thanks to Jeff @ Merkur Midwest.

I'm not a Certified Merkur Technician (the shirt days I am), but I play one on YouTube.
