    Cool!


    By the time January gets here there should be a lot of cool new products out, (post-SEMA), plus all the cool products already out that we normally use.

    I'll be sure to have some more cool cars lined up to... similar to these from our last class...

    Hello Mike,

    I don't see what the price of the Boot Camp is. I see you get a $200 gift certificate.

    Thanks
