    It's not on the cover, but I'm not complaining about a 14 page article in TRJ for my first build. :D

    The Dan Webb built So-Cal Streamliner and Johnson's Hot Rod Shop '32 definitely deserve the cover more than the Kaiser.

    This is so huge! You gotta know how many people feel a lot of pride on your behalf... kinda like watching your kids raise their kids from afar. We're just so damned proud of you (wiping tear)... :D

    Hey Frenchy! I have a lot of ideas in my head, I need to pick one and get going on it. I want to meet up with you guys again, any plans for a show or Pavillions soon?

    Headed to Pavillions tonight, hope to see some HAMBers there.

    Also planning on the Goodguys show in a few weeks at Westworld in Scottsdale. Hoping to hit more shows once the boy grows up a bit and we are up to it as a family.

    I would strongly disagree with that statement. Your Dragon has vision there's do not.

    I have to agree with my father there are only so many ways a 32 can be done.

    Saw your car at the Pavilions last weekend. It was by far one of the sweetest rides we saw out there. I am on about page 5 of your build thread, and I am blown away at all the work you did to this car. I just had to stop by and say Job VERY Well Done. Hope to see you in person some time since we are semi local.

    J-Man, wish we could have said hi, but we were not near the car most of the night. We met some friends and then had dinner at YC's. I moved the car over there and we sat at the outside tables and watched people check out the car. It was quite strange to sit there and look at my car finished. :)

    Thanks for the compliments, hope to see you out there next time.

    Pickup Rodder Journal at the swap meet. What a great write up. Neat story and a great build. Car looks great, I hope you were able to get copies of some of the mag shots. Congrats!
    Nobody told you, you couldn't do it.

    Thanks Jett, I was very pleased with the article. I got my subscription issue this week and will be leaving it in the plastic, since I already have an early release issue that I can read and show people.

    It sure was, and I literally could not have done it without your support. Glad you finally got to read the article. Those pictures really show off the brightwork huh? The front end shot shows how absolutely straight the grille bars and bumper are. Put a straightedge on that page, I dare ya! :)
