    Wow. That is a great story. I feel bad for Tyler, what a raw deal, but how much love he has experienced is totally awesome.

    I sent his story to Jay Leno (Jay Leno's Garage) and Stacey David (Gearz). Hopefully the car can be finished quickly and Tyler will get a chance to drive and enjoy it.
