Arrow Pumpkin [COTW 12/5/11]

You have to start some where. How about where it all began. June 29th 2009 when I first layed my eyes on Pumpkin.

I peeled off the shipping tape and removed the plastic from the drivers seat, bolted on my plate and drove Pumpkin back to the dealer from train yard.

June 30th 2009 the Happy Day. Pumpkin lost in the in-famous Area 51 for 59 days. Became one of the final four in Area 51.

Myshelf and my Daughter Alisha for delivery at my Dealer Preston Chev Langley BC.
