October 2011

If it is October it must be time for the annual Carrera Panamericana mad dash from the south of Mexico to the north, 2000 miles over 7 days. We're ready to go and we're ready to win, so let's hope it all works out for ace navigator Angelica Fuentes and me, and our 1954 Oldsmobile Super 88 we call "Olds in Name Only". As you may know it is highly modified and features a 630hp Chevy V-8. We have a really cool new onboard video camera half the size of a cigar. If we can figure it out we'll upload video so you can see our progress. And our website will have updates daily.

Time to add another vehicle to the fleet. Analyzing our needs, we needed a small truck to pick up at the plater, at the fabricator, to get the mail, and to run light duty errands around LA. Our Honda Element has been a good choice but a year or so ago when the Ford Transit Connect van came out, it was just a matter of time until we got one. So here it is… perfect for our needs.

The Element has the license "The Grom" and we'll apply for "Grom Man" for the new Ford. Seems fitting as we're well known for wire access grommet products.

I hope all is well with you and your business. We're still hanging in there… 2012 will be interesting! How much more drama can we take?
