My buddy got in the Good-Guys Gazette!

My friend Steve called me all excited that he got his Good-Guys Gazette (I haven't received mine yet darn it) and he was in it!! WHOO HOOO! He was so damn excited about it. In the caption Kirk didn't make it enough about STEVE for my taste but Steve doesn't seem to mind.

When I think of the modifications I had to make to the car to get him in, it's NOTHING compared to how hard this man works just to survive everyday. That Saturday morning when I made the grab handle for him we met up with at the show (He rode in the Rambler the next day) and we had lunch. All I could think of was how he had a harder time eating lunch, he had to work harder at eating his friggin lunch than I did making that grab handle! That is the cold hard facts of all of my "work" I had to do to get him in there. It isn't CRAP, I did NOTHING compared to him and how hard it was to just get in that car, even with the mods. I am honored to have been a part of it and we will be going to many more!

Brian

I'm sure Steve is proud to say " This is my friend, Brian ". It sounds like you are a great person to be around.

Love the Rambler too !!

Very excellent! I had an older lady friend when I was in my 20's that was blinded in a car wreck and used to take her out in my fist '57 Chevy. It made me as happy as her to see her smile. Good on you for treating someone well. It is what makes this a great site. Thanks.

It's pretty funny he has showed that grab handle to everyone who will listen when I am around with the car. He has been calling me about local shows near us and I have been so burned out from work I haven't been able to take him. But he still goes in his van and then reports back to me on what the show was like. I am hoping so much that I can get him in the Gran Sport and show him what it's like to smoke them tires.

My internet has been down Brian. Just saw this. I am pleased for you and Steve both. You both have to enjoy the coverage in the Gazzette. I know myself and all the guys on here admire what you did. Especially since your only motivation was to bring a little joy into Steve's life and not for personal recognition or glory. I look forward to getting my Gazzette. Has not arrived yet. Good friends are special.
