    Exclamation Hello!

    Hi everyone!

    I just want to introduce myself! I'm one of the Cool Rides Online creators/administrators and am very excited that this website has finally launched.

    I first got into "rides" while I was serving as a helicopter mechanic for the US Marines in Okinawa. After work, we used to bring our cars close to the hangar and work on them. I mostly worked on the body (fiberglass, sheet metal & composites). We had an Innova (Honda car, not the bike), several Skylines, a Sylvia and my best friend's MR2. Also had my eye on a Supra but that never came about.

    This isn't the exact car, but similar. We added intake scoops that hugged the corners, very nice!

    After the service I started working for Gold Eagle Co. and through them, got a chance to travel to a lot of car shows where the "fire" started tingling to get involved a little deeper into collector cars, before I was mostly into imports and Tuners but now my I tend to appreciate most makes & models.

    I'll be keeping a close eye on the Swap Meet waiting for the right car to call to me (maybe 70~72 Chevelle... Ahhh) But we'll see!

    Anyway, that's me in a nutshell! Please feel free to "friend" me and I hope to get to know as many of you as possible both on the site, and while traveling the Car Show circuit! (Next up, 2011 Hot Rod Power Tour!)

    Cheers!

    Hey everyone!
    My name Is Jon Lewman, but most know me as Rooster.
    I race Lawn Mowers in the Sta-Bil Lawn and Garden Mower Racing Series with the United States Lawn Mower Racing Association. I am the Presideent of the Coffeyville Kansas based USLMRA Affiliate club ; The American Heartland Lawn Mower Racers.
    I am the son of an auto mechanic, when most kids had those little wooden benches with plastic tools, I had a briggs mower engine and a set of Snap-On wrenches. Literally been messing with engines longer than I have been walking!
    I started racing Q-midgets when I was 7 or 8 and have pretty much never quit racing something. From H/O scale slot cars, to west coast mods, even ran a couple of Island Rally races in Okinawa Japan when I was in the USMC. (Marcel...we seem to have a theme going here)
    I love performance and custom vehicles and can't wait to see some of the members stuff.
