What does the term God’s country conjure up for you?  I usually think of a beautiful sunset, a beautiful mountain vista or maybe the majestic redwoods of Big Sur.  Sometimes it is  patriotic vision of the United States of America.  Shelton turns my notion on its head, and I believe truly captures the meaning better than I ever could.

So now, the big question is, where does this leave an exhaust technology company?
