Thadd was a member of our Solano Classic Car Club. I haven't seen him all year, but I didn't know why. The car was built by his dad. I believe there are some custom touches to the car. Nice car. Hope he is doing better.

Gosh I wish I had the money not only because this is a really nice car but it belonged to Thadd.

To be born a Redneck is by chance, to live as one is by choice!
