    Dude, I saw you out here in Moab Friday night. Jeep/Ram truck head of design, Mark Allen and I were tooling around in that completely stock maroon/tan '49 Willys Wagon and passed by you just as you were pulling out of your parking spot 'bout an hour before it got dark. We turned around but you were already gone.
