Hi all! I'm a new member to the board, but I've been watching from afar for years now! My moniker EXJL is exactly that, I'm an ex JL employee, struck down by the corporate takeover. I was the Director of Marketing and Product Development for the last 2 years of PM JL. I had the pleasure of bossing around the legends of JL, Jeff Koch, Art, Tony, Mike G.,even Mac and Al. Though I didn't always agree with some of the comments and suggestions that were put out onto the board, I always liked reading it. I feel I know a lot of you just from reading your comments. I found that you all are very perceptive and passionate about die-cast collecting and I learned a lot from you all on how to make great collectible cars! You always kept us on our toes, the common line around JL was, "make it right or the board will let us have it". Thanks for making my hair gray! I look forward to seeing and meeting many of you at Lightning Fest! :wave:

I can't figure out this logic? You worked so hard at JL, toiling over work and aggravation for years and years, Graying your hair do due giving 150% effort to your job. Working so much that you couldn't even find time to join the Hobby Talk Club, Learning every aspect of the company's style, professionalism, and business manners.

What was the reward? New Company takes over and tells you to have a nice life?

Welcome to the Club, I'm sure you will get more respect here than other places, Keep posting, and Good Luck.

:lol:

'Bout time you hop on board. By the way, I had one hell of a day...I worked through lunch so I left 45 minutes early.

Perhaps you know already, but Creepsters are selling well! :thumbsup:

Time for a thread about CCC.

Thank you for joining in here when you finally were able to, and thanks for taking note of what was discussed here when you were in a position of authority. It's a shame that in the merger there was no place for your talents, in RC2's eyes, and I'm sure we all here wish you the best. Once again, we are forced to ask, "was this merger really a good thing for everyone?"... you and the many who fell before you (seems like everyone anyone here ever knew at PM) paid the price for one man's "right" to do what he pleased, regardless of who it hurt.... sad.
