Holy crap Jon, way to go!! I'm sure Kristin had a great time looking at all those parodies too that we made. This is definately a prime example of how powerful the internet can be. Wow, I still can't believe they actually discontinued their relationship with GMG, that's incredible!

Way to go Jon Thats great.

advertised on this site
advertised on this site using the "charity" excuse
posted disgusting self pics along w/ the advertising
wouldnt man up and appologize
people they had biz dealings with posted under false names
people they had Biz dealings with gave piss poor excuses for doing so
made a piss poor video that did nothing but degrade teh hotrodding lifestyle

seems like a good list of reasons to me ...

I've noticed GasMonkey selling off a lot of cars lately on E-Bay.....

And last weekend at GoodGuys, they had a rather small contingency and presence, compared to previous events...... Their Big Rig wasn't IN the event, it was parked outside in the parking lot.....hummmmm, It's all making sense now.

I noticed that also.
I never saw Richard either. Perhaps if he would have wore his thong he would have gotten more attention.
Then on second thought, probably not.


Jon talk to SPIKE TV next!!!!!

If you notice this has been happening to a small extent on American Hot Rod.
That would get me to watch. It would be nice to see them take a car from scrapyard to highway. An hour show to fill for a season? Take 1/3 of each episode to follow, in detail, an 'old school' build where somebody starts with a relic and ends the season with most of it done by him/her, in a garage. Take 1/3 to follow, in detail, a build or restoration that's been hired. Take the other 1/3 for 'features', like a difficult chop or sectioning or an extra fine engine graft, kind of illustrating a best of breed or state of the art and how they got there.

I'm missing something here, but as I'm on the other side of the world I guess that's to be expected. Is this just a 'LOOK AT ME' thing or is there money involved?
