Saw your coupe at the open house, and you explained the build plans. It's going to be a killer HOT ROD! I guess the black modified frame that was sitting next to your coupe is a hint about your front suspension. I think it's a very good idea, and should work real well. Hope it starts a trend.

It would be nice if we could get an update on the modified too....tell Jo.

A boner, I'm glad you got a chance to get to the open house. It was a great time and another good opportunity to meet more HAMB members. That modified is going to be pretty cool for sure.

Ghost, my Hilborn was converted to EFI when I got it. Can't help you much on the how-to. Sorry man.

I've got to remember to keep the shop door locked when I'm not there. At least I know where that deck lid is if I ever need it.

I followed your build Terry. I love your car and your choice of color.

Mine is going to be a rather nice shade of BLACK!

Purely sinister, shiny black...

Hey Rich, I missed seeing you this summer. You need to make over to lunch sometime. Frank and some of the other guys meet for lunch every Friday. It would be great if you could make it some time.

Pincher - long time no see. I hope all is well. The stripper is down in Indy. Don't know of anyone local.

Weekend update...

Cowls lip is done:





Rear quarter lips started. Made patterns and dies to form replacements on a Pull-max:



Cut out the damaged parts:





Start with the patches while the new lips are being formed. Ryan Schon, our paint and body guy, made it in from Cincy to pitch in.

A well-deserved plug for Jo...



The new shirts featuring Willy's roadster came out great.
