I think that picture was taken in South Bend in 2011. Not sure. I was approached by guy who said he wanted to shoot some pictures. He really didn't say what they were for and I really didn't care so I said sure. A few months later I was getting calls and emails from people telling me they were at their FLAPS or a service station and saw my truck on a calendar hanging on the wall. Pretty cool.
Last summer I went to a local Sunday morning cruise in that we sometimes go to and a guy walks up to me that I have seen before but I don't really know. In his hand he has what is obviously a fairly large wrapped up picture frame of some kind. I opened it up and it was me tooling down the road in the coe. I figured it was one of those deals where the guys says, you can have but it going to cost you 50 bucks or something. Nope, he said, "its for you" and walked away. One of my favorite pictures.
John is referring to little show we all went to in Virginia. Apparently a couple of guys were seen staring at the front of the big yellow COE and one asked the other, "why?".
Its been a long running joke ever since. Hey, Niels and I know WHY!
Niels and I have been talking via pm. I am keeping my eyes peeled for a COE for him.
