    Hey Guys just wanted to share this past weekends outing with you. A couple weeks ago they announced that the Texas State Fair was cancelled because of the COVID 19 pandemic. Well that meant that a State Fair staple wouldn't be had, but Fletcher's Corny Dogs decided they would do pop-up sites throughout the metro-plex so we could still get our corny dog fix. [​IMG]

    This past Saturday Gas Monkey Garage was hosting the event so we loaded up the wagon and took a drive out to get a corny dog and possibly take a few photos. Low and behold Richard Rawlings, the owner and star of the Fast and Loud show, came out from his private party to take a look at the wagon and even offered to purchase it. He was a real nice guy and even posed for a few photos with my son and I. Granted the guy is in the business of buying and selling cars, but I thought it was cool that he came out to take a look and ask questions about my wagon's history. [​IMG]

    Here are few photos:

    That is awesome. You've got a great looking wagon, he knows his stuff, it's no wonder he came over to have a look.
