Happy Birthday hicountrybob

Took the old man out to lunch and a ride in his 428 today. Made a wrong turn down a dead end street and when I was turning around a couple guys on the porch hollered at us to “Light ‘Em Up!” We obliged.

Happy Birthday Bob it looks like it was a great one.

What a great father! He came up to Bremerton and paid me a visit. He is such a nice man and I feel honored to have met him. Give him my best and take him out every day and burn those tires to the ground! What a great way to live each day!!

A belated happy birthday to one of my all time favorite men. The day that Bob spent showing me around Denver is one of my favorite memories. He took me to all of his favorite car shops and even showed me his stash of collector cars that weren't Mustangs. I even found a N.O.S. Ivy Gold deluxe shift handle for my Cal Special during our visit to one of the many shops. Unfortunately I didn't get a ride in the 428 because it had snowed the day before. Hope that you had a great day Bob!

Dan, thanks for sharing the photos and thanks for taking good care of your dad.
