What a great story!

Thanks for sharing that with us. I was happy to be there to add to the fun.


So he does have legs!   So I faked another one. It loses quality when I shrink it down.

Thanks for the nice words man!  :wave:

Yep C O D Y is a good guy. I did not think he was for real at first but he is the the real thing,.. a rightious man! Never had anyone offer to let me paint my car in his shop and barely knew me.  Let me sit in his gazillion dollar viper and learn alot about ebody's from his judge book. Pretty cool self made man and he is 1 month older than I am. May the blessings of life continue in your family.

I'm so lucky!  :bananasmi



So happy to see how much fun youve had with Flat Cody- cars, friends, girls youve taken good care of him and that means a lot to me! What I understand is that yall want to know where Flat Cody came from well, Im just the person to tell you!

But first, I have to start with the real Cody; you see, Codys a special guy, my favorite, in fact; ambitious, intelligent, handsome, my best friend since we were kids and have always been together. And last year, with his 40th birthday looming (March 2013), I knew I wanted to do something out of the ordinary for this great guy. One little problem though, Cody told me well in advance that he didnt want a party or gifts- he said he had everything he could ever dream of. While thats exactly what a wife wants to hear, I wasnt satisfied and couldnt leave well enough alone. So, I thought back to the gifts he appreciated most and realized they happen to be the ones I carefully crafted, the ones I couldnt just buy. But, what would be meaningful to Cody that I hadnt already done?

Through the years and all his interests, hes always had a passion for cars, helping others, accomplishing things others would never even try and good, true friends. How on earth can I put these things together in one meaningful package? Then, it came to me for his birthday, I wanted to have Cody visit (without his knowledge) as many good people that hes met through his passion/interests as possible, regardless of their geography for the purpose of compiling his travels in a book that would serve as a gift.

After many failed tests with actual photos, I knew I needed to hire a really good artist to draw Cody- that was the only way to get the perspective right in a photograph. I found the perfect artist in Quebec and I was over-the-moon with his rendition of Flat Cody! I sent 2 versions (large & small) of Flat Cody, along with detailed instructions on how to take photos with Flat Cody, to as many people as I could find (thanks again Neil for putting me in contact with Dave Witt!) with the following guidance: take at least one, but as many pictures as you want; consider taking a picture sharing a drink at your favorite pub, showing him your garage, overlooking your favorite hiking spot or cityscape. Share what makes you you, with Cody. I was surprised and delighted at the pictures that were flooding into my Inbox.  :woohoo:

On Codys birthday, he opened the photo book and, man, I wish I had a camera recording his reaction- he was puzzled and stunned and really, really grateful. He wanted to know all about the book- how on earth did all this come together? How did I get so many great people to contribute? Every few hours, he would ask me another question about the book, still trying to put it all together. So, to all those who contributed on this forum, thanks again; you helped my wonderful husband have what he says was the best birthday thus far and thats pretty darn great, if you ask me.   :ylsuper:

Skip forward several months and we find out Dave brought Flat Cody to the best car Mopar show/swap meet on the planet! I want you to know seeing Flat Cody at Carlisle with you all made Codys month and mine too; you guys are the BEST!  :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Flat Cody gets around!  I bet he makes an appearance at the Mopar Nationals this year!  lol.  Couple more weeks . . . . . .   I just hope he doesn't get arrested or anything!   Cops will ask him questions and he will just smile at them . . . .
