    Yeah...forgot to bring that up on the HAMB! Thanks Kev....everyone should go out and get this mag Its mostly bobbers and choppers, but its a great little mag and you should always support the little guys. They have a website if you cant find it at your local newstand.

    I'm impressed...looks like you've got quite a bit done since I was out. I never really thought I would like a gold engine, but somehow you made it look good.
    Guess I better book my plane ticket soon for that ride.....

    I guess nobody else has noticed those kinks in the end of your rear spring. This "old school"(should read old fool) style of dropping a car also negates the spring as a working part of the suspension since the spring leaves can no longer slide back and forth on each other.
    You might think about changing this hiccup.
    Car looks good except for the rear spring.
