I've a slightly eerie feeling because my brother was riding on that very same Breezy with that very same pilot about a half-hour before the crash. (He was giving tours over the airfield throughout the day.)
Condolences to Jim's family.
I got about a minute in and had to stop. Anyone make it past that? Please tell me the thing magically Christines itself. »
Oh my God, number seven. I remember that commercial too well from when I was growing up.
Also, I was on set for the filming of number six. The "artist" playing the "music" is a Canadian, I believe. (Sorry.) »
I (vaguely) remember getting my wisdom teeth taken out three years ago. To be honest what I remember was sitting in the chair and them putting me under; snippets of the dentist office lobby; then fully waking up to find myself at home playing Forza Motorsports 4 (and winning, despite some double vision). »

King likes cars, no doubt, but I sometimes wonder how deep his passion for/knowledge of the subject goes.

When I recently showed it to my three roommates, however, they absolutely abhorred it. Why? Probably 'cause none of them drive. »
�� "The LeMons racing series/
Has seen some strange things/
But the strangest thing yet/
Was a plane without wings.

My '71 Scamp has these, part of the A01 Light Package option. I thought they were neat, but people unfamiliar with old cars really get a kick out of them when I take them for a drive.
