All of this just makes me smile Allan. You have done a great job with this interview series using Floyd for the introduction not to mention the green screen effects!

Man I was shocked to hear that they started out with a drag race with these cars, glad they stopped that.

This brings back some memories from 1964 (I was 11 years old) my father loved cars, on his meger pay as a soldier somehow he was able to purchase a brand new 1965 Ford Galaxie. He was always excited to be one of the first to get a new car when it came out. I will never forget the first ride in that car…he said “it only cost a nickel to go first class” Now that saying came from the fact that at the time you could mail a letter first class with a nickel stamp. I was watching TAGS at the time he bought this car, but I don’t think I realized for sure this was one of the models actually used as a squad car on the show, it just looked so much different without the red light and the b&w body with the star and whip antenna.

Now Allan, I have got to say this….you do such a great job of impersonating Floyd that sometimes I have to sit in amazemtent and wonder…..is Allan impersonating Floyd the Barber or is Floyd impersonation Allan Newsome. You’r good Allan. Enjoy all of this stuff for sure.
