Now this is cool!

Today I received an email from Hemmings Muscle Machines to order the 2013 calendar. To my surprise my car was on the calendar for June 2013. Pretty exciting if you are a car guy.

I agree, very cool!

How much did they pay you for the rights to use a photo of your car in the calendar?

Congrats, Super Sport, that's quite an honor and you should be very proud. I certainly would be.
