Downtown Monterey after dinner. From the left: Margaret, Byron, Jefferey, Jennifer, and yours truly. Jennifer likes to poke fun at me. My car's plate says “TUBEGUY” so she started calling it “TUBEGAY”. So on a website where we gather I took this photo:   and made this one: So watch it when you mess with me. I have Jared and Photoshop. PS... I'm not anti-gay.   A Ferrari Lusso. One of my favs at the Concorso on Friday.   Keith Martin of Sports Car Market... my fave magazine.   You'll often see this guy at the Saturday Historics at Laguna...

Okay, here's the deal. EveAnna said that to extend the life of my helmet's inside liner, I should do what she does: wear a doo-rag. Someone else told me it was a doo-doo rag, so I showed up with a pair of BVD's on my head, thinking that's what they meant by that.

Click here to watch a video about Wolfgang's Vault and what they do.       Katherine York, head archivist at Wolfgang's Vault and her cohort Grant archiving away. Katherine didn't tell Grant that I was not a piece of leftovers from the 60's, so he immediately started sizing me up to be archived. He said that I was in very poor condition, and I should be put in the back so no one would ever find me.   Kevin dancing like he's stoned in front of a large shot of a crowd at a Greatful Dead concert that was...

This is Rocky, National Sales Manager here at Upscale Audio. No one visits Upscale Audio without being greeted by him. Most people might ask, "Why would you use a Malti-poo as your sales manager?"Well... the answer is simple. Rocky will jump up on your lap, then immediately start to crawl up onto your shoulders, and he'll stay there until you move him. No one trained him to do this, he just does it! I've had him with me in my Porsche convertible with the top down and he stayed behind my neck for the entire 6 hour round-trip. (Of course...
