Hello from SW WI, my name is Galen Govier and I just signed up to this site.

Yeah, the OP made a career documenting rare cars but it isn't as if he did it for free. He was paid for his work, as he should be.

stiffed a bunch of people too.. he isn't the type needed here in my opinion..
There have been several people say that he has been seen at car shows opening hoods of cars (without permission) to look at fender tags. It has also been said that he has moved items from dashboards to see VIN tags, opened doors to see VIN tags....

yup, have heard that from many different people over the years.. pure entitlement.
