Hey man!Its really nice to hear from one of my old friends.I have been bout sick thinking I was makin the good folks on here sick of my jawin.Just found this awesome site and already wearing my welcome out.YOU already know how I am.Where have YOU been?I do not get to post much.I really thought something else happened after the fueding on LSDIX started.I looked about 3 months ago and it was gone.I posted lots of pictures on there that were in a camera that was stolen.Me ,Donnie, Johnny and Gary at the RRHOF is the only image of us together in years and it is gone.Hope you and yours are well.I am having trouble with the site and cant get to my message.I had to get you here.I still feel sorry for Gene.I miss seeing all the fans at the meets but realise there was another side.I never made one nickel off Gene.We did everything for him and never asked anyone to add one cent.All of the signage on our cars came from my pocket.Joe Gibbs Racing was in the same ship when that series milked all the poor private teams dry.Tony Stewart ,Yeley,Hamlin,Edwards and Busch left after the first season.Man,I hope nobody thinks we used that site for our racing.I did have Gene selling his book in Charlotte several times all at my expense to promote his car.Coach was never involved.We saw them every year to take them out to eat.Amanda will tell you how much we did for coach.I paid him for all appearances he did in Flotida.He never did get invojved in any racing with us.Larkin and Betty have always been like family to me.All I have to do is call and my entire family rceives family credentials.He gave me one of Allens very nicely reissued Gibsons.I had taken a Paul Reed Smith Corvette edition guitar for his grandson Trevor one year.One day Fed Ex pulls up to my shop and the guy gives me a box from Gibson.Allens reissue.Betty gave me Allens school yearbooks and report cards,just tons of stuff.I never sell this treasure,onlystuff I buy or trade.I just sold Ronnies bomber jacket I got from Craig Reed.You can see Gene wearing it after 30 years in that song Ballad of Gene Odom.I do not understand what went wrong with those folks.Well I still talk too much but it sure is good to know you are on here.Please lets talk by phone.I miss all you folks.This site is great and I will do anything to help it.I hate to throw up what I did for people as others have done more.I have never taken anything from anyone and it hurts me in my heart for people to put me with trashy goings on.Folks only know what they see or hear.

I got screwed by Gene myself.Johnny let Gene and I have his tee-shirt business for the brickyard rd.tour.Gene called me up and had the tour dates and told me all the shows were sold out.He told me if I put up the money and things went well we had a shot at Skynyrd's tee-shirt business.I had put a couple shows on up in Maryland to raise money for Gene and they were very profitable for Gene and the shirt's we had made up for the shows sold out, as did the shows.I took the bait and put the money up.What a big mistake I made.The tour did not do well and I lost my ass.I had to bring my wife out with me the last week to help me recover some of the lost.Gene had bolted on me and left me with hundreds of shirts.Sister told me to be careful but he talked me into it.Johnny,Donnie and I joke about it everytime we talk.We start our conversation with SOLD OUT in reference to my Brickyard rd.screwing.He did give me some nice Skynyrd stuff so it makes up for some of the pain.We had a falling out over the 55 chevy because I sided with Lacy in court and we have not talked since.I would like to talk to him because he got really close to my daughter and now she is married with 3 kids.Gene and I had a lot of fun times and I don't hold anything against him.
