Check in to the Chevy Asylum
Photos above by Thomas Graf(AKA "Pork Pie")

Ray was an inspiration to many, and loved by all. The Asylum was the reason THIS web site exists.
Ray and I exchanged emails and phone calls through all of life's trials and victories (on both ends of the line),
over a period of almost 20 years.
He was my good friend, and I will miss him a lot.

I am not alone, however, and Ray's family has graciously allowed me to upload his web site so others can share this amazing body of work. Ray, I know you would approve of having the web site continue in your absence. If anyone finds links that need to be updated, please email me. The site may not be fully functional for a while, but I promise I'll do my best to drill down through it and make it as functional as I can.
