Anyone in the news/magazines?

It used to be there were lots of local newspapers, and getting an article with your truck's picture was pretty common, but the advent of the internet has meant a lot of local papers have gone under. Have any of you been featured in a local paper, or for that matter a national paper/magazine? Post 'em up!

Not the truck, but my car was featured in Mustang and Fords, May 2001. Maybe someday the truck will be worthy!

Judging by your Photobucket albums, that is most likely! Good stuff!

Talking

Mine was in a local paper a couple of years ago, but I'm such a techtard I dont know how to put it on here. Maybe I can talk my sweetie into putting it on here for me? It was cause they put my truck on the Snap On calendar. I'm not sure when it was, but it's been a while back.

Wow, thats a twist......

....not exactly what I was expecting either.

As far as I know none of my vehicles have been in the papers. Usually when I go to the car shows or cruise nights I park far enough away to maintain a bit of deniability.....LOL

71mach351...wow, gorgeous car! take me back to high school. My buddy had blue Mach 1. Had some good times cruising South Eubank in that car.

Dang, whatta mistaka to maka. I read some of the other articles here;
Massillon restaurant owner, Tiger assistant coach implicated in pot-growing operation - Massillon, OH - The Independent

What in the world was he thinking?!?!?! I mean it sounds as if he had a decent operation going and the moron goes and blows it all on a stupid mistake......He kept the houses up, kept the outsides looking good, covered the windows in plastic behind the curtains, kept to himself in the neighborhoods, didn't have people driving in and out at all hours. Heck all the neighbors said he was a decent guy. And then he overlooks a small item and it burns the house down around his cash crop.......

...basically what did him in was the house caught on fire as his grow lights were drawing too many amps for the circuitry in the house. His grow lights were trying to draw 40 amps from a regular residential 15 amp circuit. Shameful

Does anyone know who owns that great green 56 on thats currently fetured on commericals for some drug? It'd be nice to have some info on it
