The story is so awesome and is packed with pics. Here's one now:


Rick and Neil

Go and check it out for yourself. It's deeeee-cent!

Most excellent! \m/

I used that story in our homeschool one day. We read Mr. Foster's story and then Red Barchetta and did a compare/contrast kind of thing. That was fun.

Thanks for this, BBO.

I remember reading that quite a while ago....think an aquaintance lent me a copy, or something. Story was cool, but the song was better.

I agree, but the article/road chronicle is brilliant. http://www.bmwbmw.org/bmwforums/viewtopic.php?t=8693&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0
