    I'm one of those people who have a fear of the dentist, but this is one i would make an exception for. Looks bad ass!

    it'd be awesome if your dentist tools were disguised as actual tools, like a ratchet, screwdriver or an actual drill lol, etc.

    If I had teeth that's where I would take them.
  5. Thank you again guys! I sure appreciate the kind words. I posted it here on the HAMB knowing that this the crowd that would actually "get" it. This post seems to be the jumping point from where the other folks are posting it around. This afternoon I got a call from Edmunds.com wanting to do an interview after they saw it on the Top Gear site (who picked it up from here). Now if I could only realize my dream and see myself in Rodder's Journal.... LOL. I don't think Steve Coonan would be able to get that great sunset light he is so good at to come inside and really make this stuff pop, so I guess to make that dream come true I'll actually have to build a car. LOL

    Wow. There are no words that could adequately express how cool that office really is. Just, wow.

    Just saw the thread for the first time- HOLY COW!!! That is just way too cool. You'll probably get a few people interested in the hobby who weren't before. Good job.

    AWESOME! I bet you actually enjoy going to the office everyday. I may have to fly out there when my little newborn girl gets some teeth. Nice work.

    I took the tour last month. You can't believe how much kooler it is to see in person.
    Pictures do not do it justice. Dave did a fantastic job rebuilding the car parts and
    all of the details. Next time I'm bringing the Merc so I can park in front of the building.

    Happy Trails, Mick

    that is possibly the coolest thing i've ever seen..amazing job!
  23. Haha! You guys all crack me up! :) The real funny thing is how far this has started to travel from this little HAMB post I did to show my buddies the finished project. I got 2 emails and 3 phone calls this week from folks who got emails about it. All of them were connected someway to the construction industry, so I guess it is somehow making the rounds through there. No one really "gets it" though, so far as the traditional hot rod stuff, but you guys. :D

    It is truly astounding and actually, quite humbling, to me how well it has been accepted and appreciated. I built it based on stuff out of my life and my own goofy interests. Having never been a "cool kid" and still not considering myself a "cool kid," it is quite amazing to me that is has had the broader appeal that it has.

    Had not seen this until now. Most unique, to say the least. Actually, "over the top" probably describes YOUR vision and accomplishment. Really nicely and tastefully done. DD

    Nice job. The respect you have for your dad in the way you talk about him says alot about him and the good job he did with you. The life connection of stories and the execution makes it even better accomplishment. Well done my friend. Thanks for sharing.
