Yes, I agree. The victims in Vegas deserve a post in recognition here.

Man, Tom Petty's death hit me hard as a life-long fan. Between that and the tragedy in Vegas it was a rough day.

Peter Botwright. The man behind Wested Leather and the Indy jacket. His work has been a big part of my life for a long time. Thanks Peter.

We lost a pillar of our hobby and he will be missed by many. Condolences to his friends and family.

Wow. Never saw that episode before! I used to watch re-runs of "Gomer Pyle" religiously every day after school at 4:30 and don't remember this at all. Gomer doing Don Quixote?!? Gotta love it. That's Jim's singing voice, for sure, but funny how he doesn't belt this one out with Pyle's southern accent!

He was also great in the Saturday morning, Sid & Marty Krofft show, "The Lost Saucer" with Ruth Buzzi. Good memories.

Speaking of memories, how about him singing "Back Home Again in Indiana" at all the openings of the Indy 500? Here he is in 1977 (the year of "Star Wars"):
