I am very much delighted and honored that I have been nominated for the Bouquet of Three Award. This award is a combination of the following:
- The Sunshine Award implies that the author positively and creatively inspires others. Save for my nasty little write up on the new Corvette I truly try to be positive, hoping that creativity falls upon the screen, as well.
- The Best Moment Award is given to a blog that has a literary piece defining a specific moment that is thought provoking, creative, honest, and or inspiring. If I had to choose among my 60+ posts I would select one about each of my sons Michael and Jon, respectively. These two young men inspire me daily.
- The Versatile Blogger Award recognizes the all-around blogger. I suppose when a person writes about their mom, license plates, and muscle cars…
My friend, Mart, at http://onemanandhismustang.com/, happens to be my first follower, and I, his. I am humbled that he thinks I am worthy of the above accolades. I thank him so much for this award. I suppose he has seen the best and the worst of my posts. He has supported me along the way, and has given me guidance and suggestions. While there are three dimensions to this award I am confident that writing about the history of cars as they relate to my wonderful family might graze across each.
Thanks again, Mart Dawson!

Seven Things About Me:
First, I apologize that a most recent post highlighted a few bits and pieces about me. It was only meant to camouflage that pesky Plate of the Week. (I don’t normally talk about myself this much!)
- Growing up it was important that we learned all that was necessary for a well rounded childhood: shooting a gun, riding a motorcycle, the game of pool, water skiing, driving a stick shift…you know, the usual stuff.
- If I had a tattoo it would be of a piston with my dad’s name on it.
- I don’t like gardening, lace, ruffles, etc.
- I will not race a girl. Nor do I race like one.
- I’ve never had a bee sting, cavity, or broken bone. I should be careful. Until recently I was able to say that about a speeding ticket.
- When the weather is right…I’d rather blog outside than inside.
- I’d rather be remembered than rich.
