    Hey fellow Bandit Runners!

    A couple of updates for the Hersheys! First, we are moving back to Texas! My old company made me one of those offers I 'can't refuse.' So, We're in the process of selling/buying etc. LA was nice, but we really loved Texas and can't wait to get back (no tofu there!).

    Also, my car is currently making it's motion picture debut! It's a new movie produced by Will Ferrell called 'The Goods: The Don Ready Story.' It's a comedy about a used car lot and the people hired to 'liquidate' the inventory. It stars Jeremy Piven (Entourage), Ving Rhames (Pulp Fiction, Mission Impossible 2 and 3), James Brolin and David Koechner (Anchorman, The Office, Talladega Nights). They are using my car as the 'centerpiece' of the car lot and they call it the 'batmobile' in the script. It sits up on raised lift. They had to really downgrade the look of it by using a little movie magic (my heart nearly stopped when I saw it). But, they assured me it rinses off clean (gulp!).

    I'll post a few pics soon...including one of Lori and co-star David Koechner. It's being shot here in CA...and I'm supposed to pick it up this week. Can't wait to see you all again!

    It'll be good to have you back here east of the rockies. Hopefully you'll be able to make the Bandit Run and the Yo/Ex this year, you've still got time!

    David--

    Having moved here from California myself, let me be the first to welcome back another prodigal "Tex-son".

    Glad to see you're coming back to the center of the known universe.

    Best,

    If you ever solve that little traction problem you seem to be having, c'mon down to Texas after Dave gets "back home"...we'll have our own car show!
