with all this covid -19 B.S. going around... most all car shows have been canceledAngry so many local towns have started having simple cruises... you can't keep car guys downWink
 so i took the torino out Big smile friday night after i got off of work, work's been hectic last couple days...trying to get a steering column finished for my buddy... and they got a car program started and want to have me featured in it Thumbs Up then we'll just tie it in with the cruise ok i'm game Big smile (well trying to shoot video, do an interview, cars revving up, people walking in front of the camera, numerous retakesConfused) then the second part to film on saturday... many retakes, lost audio on one part... you guessed it! another retake from the start Ouch then both of us at different times forget what we were talking aboutEmbarrassed yep, more retakesConfused and i was originally on my way to a family bbq a few hours before ... so in the middle of filming my phone goes off LOL ( a couple of times BTW)  well after several hours... i think we got itClap

so here it is... (i think it turned out pretty well all things consideredWink)
