One of Vallejo's Rod Hickory Pits Originals. Rest on my friend. I remember you coming to the pit back in the late late 90s just to sit and have a drink with the crew. You always had a good story of yesteryear and always had us going. Thank you for serving 45 years! Thank you for the drinks. We all bought rounds. Those were great times.
