Excellent work everybody!

So once again, we find that evil of the past seeps into the present like salad dressing through cheap wax paper, mixing memory and desire.

Grats errbody.  :applaud: :applaud: :applaud: :applaud:


Builders take 2013 off because OND says that time machine thingy he's been working on will be done.  :blank:

Pretty sure they'll create a new award for that cab. The Ondy.

Man, will my cab EVER be finished?
