Thanks to a donor, who will remain nameless, here's a shot of the Can-Am muscle hunk Tom Flex as a young man. Can-Am lists his stats as 6'0" and 204#. This is a photograph of him sometime before (I assume) his Can-Am days, which stretched from 1992 to 1997, approximately--roughly the period of my moderate-to-heavy addiction to Can-Am products (and to Flex, Perris, Stone, Dean, Conlin, etc.). At Can-Am, Flex had a somewhat gaunter face, with cheekbones and a jawline that could cut through cardboard. I liked and still do like his look back then, and yet here, with a fuller, fleshier face, he looks disarmingly fresh and innocent. Recently Can-Am released DVD versions of many of Flex's early VHS releases.
