I Sincerely Thank You All !! JK
SPECIAL NOTICE: I want to publicly thank those in the Rod & Custom Publication Industry that have been so generous and supportive of both the "Hall Of Fame Legends" Series WebSite, and, my efforts to put it together and produce it.
SO, as to give fair "thanks" to all involved, I'll put them in Alphabetical Order. The list includes: Tim Bernsau (Rod & Custom); Brian Brennan (Street Rodder); Christopher Campbell (Hot Rod); Geno DiPol (OSR/CKD); Eddie "T-Bird" Donato (OSR/CKD); Luke Karosi (Kustoms Illustrated); Rob Kinnan (Hot Rod); Alan Mayes (OSR/CKD); Jim Rizzo (Street Rodder); Jerry & DeVona Titus (KKOA Trendsetter). My sincere thanks to each and everyone of you ! And, it goes without saying, a constant thanks to Darryl & Donna Starbird for their help, support, and, friendship. (Links to ALL of the above mags can be found on the "Visit Some Of Our Friends" Page.)
I think we all know that our Industry/Hobby brings us together, not just as friends, but more like an extended "family". And, although this Site went through a "start-up" stage in July,2007, it wasn't officially launched until September 10th of that year. The response WorldWide since that time has been not only heartwarming...it's FANTASTIC !
HOWEVER, it could not have been done without the help of all the above named individuals, as well as each and every Legend/Hall Of Famer that is listed, been Interviewed, and given so generously of their time, as they understood my concept for the Series, and, the need for documenting their personal histories. PLUS, my thanks for the "word of mouth" that each of you visiting here has helped pass on to others so that they can log onto the Site.

IN RETROSPECT, that's one of the reasons I named my company The WorldWide Broadcasting Company...the reach of the www is just tremendous. And, to be able to share the stories of these Pioneers of the Industry with those all across the Universe is a feat that would have been unheard of only 10-12 years ago.
I constantly strive to upgrade the entire Site. The "visuals" are tweaked and added-to as necessary, as well as the audio, to showcase each of these Legends with the respect and importance that they deserve. And, again, many thanks for all of your eMails ! I read each one, and thank you for taking the time to send them.
Be watching for more Legends News, Interviews, and, Special Pages to be added soon...for both your listening & viewing enjoyment. With the constant help and support of each of you, the World of Rods & Customs will power through this new Millenium and into the next ! More importantly, the "The Hall Of Fame Legends" Series will continue to be heard all over the World...and their histories and voices will continue to inspire a new generation.
With sincere thanks...Jonnie King
