  13. Thanks so much guys he is my bestest lil buddy. He said last week at a car show we went to & I quote "Dad when is this thing gonna be over, I just wanna get our trophy & go home". I couldn't help but laugh. At the first couple of events I had to walk up with him, but now he's actually gotten used to goin up to get it so much so he goes it alone. Thing is now he expects it LOL. It's so neat to see him change everyday & mature a lil bit all the time but I just know I'm gonna miss things he says & the way he says them. You all know what I mean I'm sure.
  14. Roger yea that's my lil Bo alright. At every car event I go to he is right by my side!

  21. Oh yes it has moved because his old place there was a gas station...an OLD gas station renovated to become his museum. It was the 1st building on the right as you came into town but progress came to town & it has since been knocked down to build more rooms/stores/motel & so on. They were able to have the General Lee outside & you could walk up to it & a tow truck & patrol car not to mention Daisy's Jeep but like you said at the new location just the General & the General is inside now (looks 2 b permanent to because there is a good 3 foot drop out front of the store whe
