OK, I've been sitting here at the keyboard for a while trying to figure out what to say, and all I can say is "WOW!"  Thanks and thanks again for the Spotlight!  Three years ago I took my car to the shop for a paint job and decals, and thanks to the guys at Heavy Metal Restoration, who twisted my arm enough to go with a restoration, I would up getting so much more than I could have ever wanted.  Trophys are OK, but the greatest thing about having the car is that we are getting to meet some of the best people in the world.  And now we start looking forward to who we are going to see at a show more than the show itself.  It didn't take long for that to happen.  You folks are the greatest.  I'm looking forward to being at the Nationals again this year, and being able to enjoy the people that I've grown to know over the past couple of years. 

So thanks again for the Spotlight, Cheryl and I really appreciate the honor.

Congrats Dave! Your car is beautiful, some of those pics blow my mind with how clean the car is and if they don't give the paint justice I think I would go blind seeing it in person because it has to be amazing!
