Henry's Son ,

Doug, great show but are more coming??

Seems like it’s been quite a while Doug, some fresh ones coming along? Hope so!

Great show

Another excellent podcast, from Doug. I think the next venture could be one about all the classic Ford muscle vehicles, under one banner. Muscle trucks,Ford, Mercury and Lincoln vehicles could be included.
