    Hey everyone, Rodder's Journal 54 should be on the news stands for a little while longer, but 55 is coming soon. Make sure you get a copy before they are gone.

    Stunning work and dedication to a cause. I latched onto this thread after being directed to it by the TRJ opening paragraph. Now to read the article!

    Enjoy driving your hard work!

    Finally working on the seats. Got the passenger seat down 1" - 1.5" and it makes a huge difference. Gonna bolt that in and get started on the driver's seat soon.

    I also fixed the front turn signal wiring and resealed the transmission pan. Hopefully no more drips!

    The car will be at SEMA, please come say hi if any of you go.

    I just got off the phone with Vintage Air, and I'll be installing a Mark IV underdash A/C unit before SEMA. The car will be on the ramp by Ford, come check it out.

    Hey guys, Speedhunters just put up a feature on the car with some really nice pics and a pretty thorough article. Check it out and please leave a comment on the Speedhunters site at the bottom of the article. The more interest people show in a certain type of car, the more they will feature them. I think its awesome to expose people to real hot rods and kustoms on a mainstream automotive site.

    Thanks for posting here and replying there LN7.

    I got some interesting coverage at SEMA, Eastwood did an interview, eBay Motors wrote about it on their blog, and lots of other people posted on Facebook where I got more likes than I have ever gotten on my personal account. Guess that's the power of the internet and marketing. It was definitely a different and diverse crowd at SEMA. The best part was that nearly every major builder was there so I could show them my car in person. Also Gene got to see the car finished for the first time, which was very cool.
     
  16. Cool ain't a big enough word for it!
    Congrats man!

    when I saw it was a 4 door I said to myself "how cool could this look?"

    when I saw the chop and coupe I said to myself "how cool will this look?"

    when I saw the paint and chrome and attention to minutia I said to myself "holy **** that thing is cool"

    mindblowing. and uses a modern chassis to boot, what a great project.

    Just wanted to tell you that I love your car and you have done an amazing job on it and if I could I would marry your car!

    I met the guys from Eastwood at SEMA and they were really interested in the car. They did an interview with me and made a YouTube video. It shows a lot of details on the car and they did a really nice job editing.

  28. Great video. I never get tired of checking out your car.
