Our son Randon came very close to being named "Reedy". It was on the short list of names at the time.
last time I talked to Mike was probably a nice 20 minute conversation about 235mm pan cars of all things... about how ridiculous the speeds were back in the day, and that's what lead to demise of 235mm cars way back then. "can't be more than 7 people worldwide that can drive them accurately".
Wish I'd have had a few more opportunitys to chat him up.
