Medics heal people. Sometimes they heal soilders on both sides. You should ask yourself how many innocent middle-eastern people has Corey saved.

Lets get one of the local tv station(s) to do a documentary on this restoration and maybe pick up a couple of sponsors along the way.The Fat Rat crew just might make it into prime time TV. The auto shows on tv are good,but it would nice to see some local coverage on some the talented and creative mechanics from our community.

Great idea. At least someone is taking care of our soldiers, our elected representatives don't seem to be.

Just another great example of why we should support locally owned businesses! They, in turn, support the people of our community!!! Great story!

Derka Allah I have 3 things for you
#1 If you don't support our troops please stand in front of them!!
#2 If you don't like the USA....THEN LEAVE!! We are not holding you hostage.
#3 And as a matter of fact, Corey has taken care of several middle eastern people,one that comes to mind is a critically injured child (thanks to an IED.) BTW IEDs are not American made.

“If your reading this thank a teacher! If your reading this in English without fear of prosecution then thank a VETERAN, if it where not for this young man and all those who have gone before him and all those who will go after him you would not have the freedom to open your mouth and sound Jackass!”
nice

That is awesome. I wish there were more people out there in the community that cared as much for our soldiers as we do. They risk their lives everyday away from home to keep us safe here. There is nothing more honorable than that.
