    Wicked fresh wasn't good for me. Tried it once. Too much money probably for what it was. I find much better deals somehow. Probably would go to Burger King there instead.

    Can't believe the Cog would just up and tow someone that day without a permit. Certain someone on duty? perhaps. More baggage to the story? I bet. I know people and many cry " I'm innocent" but...

    They probably took it down. The last one lasted 30yrs and this one made by the same guy probably will too. They don't fool around.
