Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift.
Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God!
It's scary when you start making the same noises as your coffee maker.

Re: March 2013 - Heartbeat of America

thanks guys for the votes and the kind words, really shocked but truly honered at the same time that i won, there was indeed alot of beautiful and more deserving trucks of this award nominated this month , i think anyone who spends countless hours in the shop either in or under his rig deserves a totm beside his name, from the 47models to the 2013's it dosen't matter, were all a bunch of gearheads or we wouldn't be on here every chance we get so thanks again, and a special thanks to alan for the nomination.

Your welcome Jeff!! You were definately in a field of some very nice rides. Since I nominated you I was biased on the vote. It would have been a very tough vote if it wasn't for that.

Congrats on a job well done!!

x2, I agree 100%! I was biased considering I nominated "clemdaddy," but it would've no doubt been very difficult if not for that. I do believe it went to a very worthy truck though, not to mention another great 60-66 member.
