        I have met Herb several times at the New Orleans Mopar Show he is a regular there. Great guy, very approachable and loves car talk. Drives his GENIII Hemi powered 57chrysler 300c convertible. Great post.

            For future reference, you just open with any media application, rotate it, then save it again.

            True legends! Very cool stuff.

              Those cars were trick, so trick Herb told me (with a smile) when his car went thru tech....he would never be anywhere near it.

              Wonder what he meant by that????

              Back in the 90s while Herb was still around he walked me thru a W2 engine build.
              I had never heard of some of the vendors he told me to contact... Norris rockers .. Tubular Auto headers..
              What a nice guy ! Said something about him being involved in the W2 developement.
