    I had to work yesterday and this morning. I brought down the ole shop truck/push truck which is sitting by the Singlefinger station. Look for the orange bubble on top. ;) not a show truck just a truck we use to haul stuff in,ect. My son and I are taking off from Jackson in the next 15 min. I have to stop by Larry's house to drop off the trailer and then onto to Cobo. I am hoping to meet a lot of you this weekend and see some really cool builds. This weekend is all about our favorite things-hot rods,engines,ect. Looking forward to finally getting this New Year into motion.

    Congrats Mark, another dream come true for you. The Beast looks great in the line up.
  17. thanks Bob...we would have looked alot better but i had decided to make a run at getting Lil Beast to where it could DRIVE IN....but Jegs screwed up and sent the wrong master cylinder for the i never got around to installing the glass, nor did i re-install all the parts that i had to take off to pull the motor trans to double check the clutch setup......

    all in all it was still a great time!!!!!!!!!!

    I kept stopping by the car to meet you but never ran into you.

    The topo is looking great.

    Looking forward to seeing you getting her finished up.

  20. i had the wife and her grandson saturday in tow.

    ..we ll get together this summer...I'm hopeful to be driving the fiat to sins of steel...check my build thread to see how I'm tracking thru the next couple of Weeks
  21. Sorry I didn't get your name on the caption, couldn't see your placard. Some folks like anonymity. I would be happy to add your name if you like.
  22. Bill i'ld be honored to have my name added..the wife a asked why i didn't fill out my card for the show
    ...honestly i just forgot

  23. That would be killer to see that roll through the gates of Sins under its own power!
  24. Please spell out your first/last name. We can get them wrong if you let us. We're gifted that way.
  25. I have been wondering if anyone else brought home a rotten cold from the Autorama like Myles and I did ? My doctor said I have a viral infection and have been under the weather since returning home. One hell of a way to finish off an amazing time at the show and thanks to all that made it so memorable...
