Love the artwork Phillip. You are THE Cougar artist in my book.
I don't think we will make it to Carlisle again this year, but boy we would like to give it a try.

Thanks Scott. I enjoy working with Gavin and I'm honored to contribute.

Gonna miss you at Carlisle this summer, but you picked a great one to attend!

Hard to believe our '68s turn 50 this year. I suspect like me, most of us got our driver's licenses in the '70s when these cars were only a few years old and cheap, used cars. I have a VW Passat that I bought new and is now 18 years old.

Time sure felt like it moved much much slower in the '70s 8-)

That’s some great artwork Philip. It would make a great poster for a garage.
