“If you’re not having fun you’re probably taking it way too seriously and should sell your car and get a cat,”...

Not always having fun with my project, I AM being serious...but the only cat in the foreseeable future might only be a 68 Mercury Cougar XR7-G., preferably with a 428CJ ;)

Randy sure is a nice fellow to correspond with. He sends everything back marked with a helpful instruction sheet. I decided to use all original harnesses vs repro on this restoration. Randy turned my Cougar looms around very quickly. Asset to our hobby for sure thank you.

Hello friends,
I had the good fortune of speaking with Randy and writing his story. Joking aside (and there was much during our conversation) Randy was quick to share info on many folks who do great things for the hobby and get little recognition outside of small circles.
This is what makes the hobby great. Thanks for sharing laughs and your story Randy!

Now...about all those farm animal stories... ;)
