Folks, it gives me great pleasure to welcome Dave Parker, a wonderful model builder, photographer, and lover of all things cars from Tracy, California to the forum. Dave is one cool cat, and he sure loves building some nice models, which I know he will share with us.

Here's his website where you can check out some of his work:

We are looking forward to seeing a lot of new eye candy, my friend. Cheers, Doctor Cranky.

Looking forward to his work!

Thank you!

I used to hear that a lot in the 80's and 90's not so much anymore! Although some Pittsburgh fans seem to be a little annoyed that I still own daveparker.com (unintentional plug!)

Appreciate the welcome, look forward to participating in the forum! -dp

Mike and Jason, maybe Dave will one day move closer to us here in Florida. Not that there's anything wrong with California, of course. Grew up there myself.

In my neighborhood they would call it being a little "touched." I've always like that, the spark of madness. A little touched by STYRENE MADNESS.
