That's my Boy

Mark Hubbard needed a drummer for his act, James Junior picked up the sticks and rocked the rumble in ramona into the night, good times, Sam Hitz couldn't resist the call of rock.

On Day Two, We drove out with the goth chopper, Coco's mercury and Reuban's maiden voyage in his 52, 3 roadside stops and 1 on the return trip but she made it

the van

My old man bought this van new back in 1978, bare bones, he carpet kitted the inside, fender flares, keystone raiders, wood burnt with a propane torch running boards, sunroof and mushroom window, hooker headers, cb radio, bed in the back, carpet everywhere, this baby was really happening.

We drove from upstate New York to California in this baby, back to New York and ultimately back to san diego in the early 80's. He lost the van to his second wife along with a hair dryer in that divorce. I'm always looking for the right canidate to recreate this piece of my childhood, soon I think, very soon.
