Howie’s Crawlers on Nostalgia Road #116

This week we grabbed the man behind the curtain on a lot of the work we have talked about on previous podcasts.

While Jacob has never officially wheeled with our club, hes worked on a good few of the rigs in it, and had a two door xj wayyy back before the club's time. What was planned as a eulogy episode to the old "Howie's Auto" Garage he recently closed, twists into a nostalgia trip back to our beginnings of plunging into this lifestyle choice.
