There were a nice assortment of Tigers as always. This batch of vintage is divine! OPC Horton is a true beauty!
Sometime ago, I commented on Doug's blog about my 80s interest in pro-wrestling. My sis was a big fan so I kinda got sucked into taking her downtown every month when the UWF came through. Tickets were cheap so we always sat somewhere in the first five rows by the ring. I was naive and quiet, and not much for fighting. Chairs flying, bleeding foreheads, the figure four moves - I must've been there for the guys. We both were. We were fans of two tag teams - Rock n Roll Express and The Fantastics. I was a big Tommy Rogers fan, the dark headed half of The Fantastics.

Doug included this way cool Leaf auto of Robert Gibson which brought back a lot of memories from those limo chasing days of the 80s.
I'm still not sure where all the time goes. Over 30 years have passed since we stood on the highway peering into that limo but the memories are vivid. I think we've aged a fairly well, all things considered, maybe better than these fellows. Robert is now partial owner of a deep-see fishing tour in Alabama. Ricky operates a wrestling 'School of Morton.' My Tommy died in 2015, for reasons undisclosed. A web search reveals Bobby is now a born-again Christian, groping bibles in lieu of boobies.
Thank to Doug for taking me back 30 plus years. Those were innocent times in my life. I'm still a bit naive but that's ok with me.
