    I am calling on all the Rat Pack members! I hate for this to be our first official action, but then it is for a tribute to a great soul.
    The family of Todd Gartshore has asked that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Victory Junction Gang. I think it would be nice and a jester of kindness for everyone that is a Rat Packer to pool our donations and send it to them in Memory of our friend Todd. No need for huge donations, any amount is welcomed, the final donation will go as from the Rat Pack, not individual people.
    Anyone else interested in donating, feel free to contact me or just donate directly to Victory Junction in Memory of Todd.
    As a community I feel this is a great way to honor his memory. If everyone likes, we could make a huge donation and call it the Rat Pack and Friends tribute to Todd.
    If you are interested in donating, you can paypal me at billybigblock @ gmail DOT com.
    Do it as a gift, since it is and note it as donation to the Victory Junction Gang, in memory of Todd Geartshore. ...

    I am happy to announce a special project I have had a small part in seeing come together.
    A couple months ago Bill called me about helping him build a killer Pro-touring car based on a early second gen Trans Am. I first introduced him to Ben Hermance and got Ben started on a Rendering. Then, I explained some of the major players in the Pro-touring world and what was available for his car. Bill is no newbie to the car world, and really got hooked on the Pro-touring scene last year when he hosted the Optima Ultimate Street Car Invitational. Bill decided he had to have a car he could bring to events and plans to either drive himself or have his wife Wanda drive it. Wanda is a trained stunt driver and certainly has the credentials to show us how it is done. As you will see from the impressive list of sponsors and vendors, we have put together some of the best parts in the business on this car. The one thing I couldn't talk him into was A/C since he lives in LA. We will see how that works out when he is in the deep south next summer on a cruise.
    Anyway, lets welcome Bill to Protouring and look for this car to debut very soon and watch for it at future events.
    Thanks to all the sponsors that stepped up, I know this car will get alot of attention and will represent our corner of the hobby well.
