    Great job.
    Probably lost 400lbs in bondo. Why oh why???!!!
     
  3. Ok, I'm back. Few updates to add...
    The Ranchero in the '78 Street Rodder is not the same car, Rod Powell built that car and knows of its whereabouts.
    When Jeff replaced the roof on the car none of the existing glass was used. It was all replaced by Bair's Glass Co. in Winfield, KS.
    @Jebo did the pinstiping Monday! Jeff baked it in the booth for a bit and we literally loaded it up and headed out.

    I got to see the car/truck. Was real nice. I really liked the head lights. Looks stock like it would come from the factory. Crazy to think they are something you can buy. Looks great. Me and tranny john really dig them. Congrats I seen the smile with the award.
     
  11. Wonderful end to a story! Will you bring the car to Salina?

  17. Very cool @Sancho! Neat to see "Jolly Rancher '57 Ranchero by Myers and Carter" on the cover of a big magazine! Couldn't happen to a nicer pair of guys!
    As great as the coverage will be to see in the magazine, it couldn't compare to seeing it in person, or see it dragging through the park like it was in Salina last month.
    Here's a few pictures I took of the '57 at the host hotel on Friday night. Such a cool Ranch! E

  19. I didn't get to visit with Jeff (@finkd) like in years past, but he was very busy doing his magic on the chopping work going on in the park. Here's a few pictures of Jeff and the crew hard at work. E
