About a month ago I got a very Interesting call. It was a typical day at work till 3pm. Get out go to home check my messages to see who called and started to call my long list back. Just another typical day and I was working my way through it. When I got a number from Arizona, I just thought it was another parts call. Boy did I get a big surprise!! When the Gentleman answered the phone I told him who I was and asked him how I could help . He told me he was from Barrett Jackson and he wanted my fire truck for the upcoming auction in Connecticut. My first thought was ok who is messing with me??? You see I am known for playing a few practical jokes on people was this finally payback??? So without missing a beat I told him I was in the mist of doing a frame off restoration and it would not be ready till next year. He then said no problem and they really it wanted for their auction and next year would be fine. He then asked me if I was planning attending this year’s auction? I said yes, he said great there will be tickets waiting for you, I thanked him and he told me he would be in touch and we hung up. I must have been pail white when I hung up the phone. My wife asked me what was that about. It took a few minutes but I finally got it out and told her the whole story. I just want to say I was in shock because I look at Barrett Jackson as being the best of the best and for them to take notice of me WOW!!! I feel real honored and I am going to have to push myself even harder to do the best possible job I can. I plan on posting updates of progress on it. My question is do I go Concourse or do I let the Fire Truck talk to me and ad my touches to it??
