    As you may recall, we’ve been an advocator of DW for Prime Minister for some time, although it now appears he’s directing his candidacy toward the Ministry of Finance.

    What better way than a nation wide, economic study based on the labor rates of Hot Rod shops.

    We are pleased to contribute to your study.

    Dream Machines Ltd. is currently billing out at $75.00 per straight time man hour.

    Best of luck with your endeavors,

    John Edwards
