Talking way back in the day!!! My two older brothers were pretty tight with Tommy back in the 70's. IIRC, they had partnered with Tommy there at Signature. I hear them talk about Tommy a lot.

Miami Beach, now renamed: Aventura, Florida really cool stuff. i can't beleave no one have made a cool movie on all the old cocaine cowboys. I think it would be a awesome movie.

They have tried but Hollywood always screw's it up. Just look at the last Miami Vice move, most of the boat scenes were cut out.

Can anyone help Fast Shafts scan that picture in post 28? I would love to have that! Here as another question for some one I found this add, is this from a company that bought the molds and wanted to keep the name??
