I have been hanging for updates, Seret has some wicked talent. I have a 50s inspired sports car I have in the planning stages and Seret's build has definitely been an inspiration.

Matt sucks but his skills certainly don't! That's one of my most anticipated cars coming out. I'm going to offer him a song and a dance for it once it's finished

Unfortunately Matt injured the tendons in his arm several months ago being all manly and rolling those huge aluminum panels by himself. Per doctors orders he's taking a break from that car, but he is rolling on a full road race roadster that requires less english-wheeling. I've discussed the roadster with him several times and we've stared at it throwing out ideas. This past weekend though, he showed me a bitchin sketch of the current direction. It will be badass!

In my opinion matt is in the top ten working in the field of hot rods and customs. The guy has an unrelenting work ethic, amazing fab skills and a great eye for design as well. I'm glad you made this post jay.

So what hope have the rest of us mere mortals got? Talented man, right up there with the best of them by the look of his work. Great to see this in finished form.

Thanks Jay and the rest of you guys, It means allot to me that you like it. It’s the motivation I need To keep going on it. Nate top 10 might be a stretch Im not that good, maybe top 10000
Like Kirk stated I did hurt my arm rolling out the back panels. I went to the doctor and I was told to take it easy or it could take 12 months plus to heal. So the bodywork is back on hold till my elbow gets better. In the meantime Im getting the Olds engine together.
or should I say Im saving up to have Tony at Ross Racing build it!

Matt's is awsome! Elpolacko has been gathering all the stuff to do a similar build, and I for one can't wait to see it get to the body makin' process... I have a feeling I'll be learning allot.

More than one of us have mentioned that!

Seret, killer car, get well soon. I have nursed some bad injuries myself. I fear I will need surgury on both hands in the future for torn tendons.

Woah, wait, races that go around corners? Good as any reason to get the Plymouth up again and out of Elpolacko's shop!!

This is one of my favorite builds on the HAMB - already a jaw dropper, and I can't wait to see it done!
