PC: Re: "Penn Central Spectacular!"


I agree, the text was like "tell me something I don't already know"! But the
pictures made up for it. Plus being on the short end of the stick for so
long, its nice to see a cover story done with PC Alco's on the cover! Also
ther are PC photos in the magazine that are not part of the article.All I
can say is gimme more!
