Vote for the January 2018 Ride of the Month!

Wow! another year just flew past... As I write this the weather reports are describing some incredibly cold temps. Except here in Arizona... where I hope to see many of you that are coming to the Barrett Jackson (and about 5 others..) auctions.

Nominees: Don't be bashful! This is the time to tell us about your car. I know there are some great stories that really need to be told. Post up some more pictures and tell us what we need to know. It ain't bragging if it's true.

We have a great group of cars, so let the deciding begin:

If any one knows Bill Leads and contact him I would appreciate it. I have contacted Blitz (Andrew Chenovick) and received no response. I need something to work with for the ROTM write up.
