    I really liked Jon on the podcast. But is it just me or does he sound a bit like Carlos Lago?

  • Jonathon Klein

    I sound like Carlos? Really? Never thought of that.

  • Josh Jund

    Probably just in my head, but I hear it a bit.

    Hey the guy that put the 69 Chevelle body on a Nascar chassis is from Canada not New Zealand and that would be me...just sayin.
