Ducati Detroit - Horizontal

    As some of you may know, about a year ago Angie and I moved to New Haven, MI - about 30 miles northeast of Detroit. In the past year, we've met a lot of great neighbors and one of them has a very unique story. The couple who live across the street from us have a son named Elliott who is battling two extremely rare conditions. First, he has what's called "FPIES" which essentially means he has an allergic reaction any time he ingests proteins found in food. Problem is - the protein is found in almost everything so he's really limited on what he could theoretically eat. But the suckerpunch is the poor guy also has what's called Mast Cell Activation which means that as if FPIES wasn't enough, everything else that's protein free and he should be able to eat ... he has an allergic reaction to as well.

    For you parents out there, imagine if your child was allergic to virtually everything he puts in his mouth. Earlier in the year, Elliott picked a little piece of paper up off the floor and ate it - his reaction was so severe they had to call the ambulance to rush him to the hospital. The only thing he CAN "eat" is water and breastmilk - and even then, his mom has to be on a strict diet to ensure the milk is safe for him.

    While our previous charities are no doubt deserving, I believe the International FPIES Foundation really needs our support this year. They're trying to raise $150,000 this year and I really think we can help get them there -- even if it's only a little bit. I'll be doing what I can to try and drum up more opportunities to raise money at the 2017 Meet & Greet, so please be sure and bring your wallets and credit cards!

    To hear more about Elliott's story, here's a <5 minute segment which aired last night on WDIV last night. I warn you though - at least for me - it will choke you up.

    11 years ago today our little chunk of the internet was born. Y'all know I'm a sentimental emotional guy, and this website has admittedly been one of my proudest achievements. What we have here means a lot to me - it's why I'm so passionate when it comes to trying to maintain the peace and kumbaya. This site is our spot to shoot the shit with fellow Camaro and Firebird cruisers and to get help and advice - whether it's on their car or personal lives. I know we rag on eachother a bit here and there, but at the end of the day I think we always come together and can make great things happen - like when we have supported eachother with the loss of loved ones, the way you all supported Angie and I when we lost our first baby. I always say it, going to say it again - anyone can throw a website forum up on the internet, but y'all make this site what it is today. For that I'm eternally thankful that we have such a great group of people here and folks that I really do consider part of my extended family.



    Happy BDay MiFBody!

    Alright guys,

    With the crappy weather, other priotities, etc I have done a piss poor job of promoting the sale of these shirts. At the end of the day, the shirts at cost were $15. The shirts were over $3,000 out of my own pocket, minus what we sold at the M&G. Now that we purchased a new house, I need to get rid of these shirts ... and fast!


    So here's the fire sale deal!

    LOCAL PICKUP - $10
    SHIPPED - $15 flat

    We have sizes from Small to XXL.

    You can use the following link to purchase the shirts -- this will ensure that our stock levels stay intact.

    The shirts come in **SPORT GREY** only.
