  1. S P R I N G ?!?!?!
    How am I going to wait that long? I'm past blue and on the verge of keeling over.
    I figure I'll pass out soon and miss the holidays altogether. If I'm lucky I will regain consciousness just in time to get drunk on St patty's day then it will 4th of July before I sober up enough to get drunk again for my birthday. I'll probably miss it won't I ?

    Okay, I think we'd all be good for that, ha ha ha.
    Anything, even random shots from different angles posted up every week or so, just to let us know it still exists.
     
  4. Marvin, I would like to drop by and see this beast next time i'm out your way. We spoke at the Jalopy Jam Up.

  10. horse shit!
    Someone who's actually waiting patiently does feel the need to say "patiently waiting" - they just wait.


    I bet if you fired it up the snow would melt faster :)

    AWESOME! YOU DID A GREAT JOB, I hope the candy striped stick is only temporary, the work on the car deserves better. Not being critical just a suggestion.

  23. Agreed, with cheater slicks hiding under them.
    Damn nice job! I hope it handles ok enough to enjoy it, but crap, I'd have zero issues having fun with it no matter how it handles.
    Is this gonna be one of those cars where you need a plexiglass floorboard to see through when the nose is up for a 1/4 mile?

    Soo? Did it light up the tires? 10 hour roadtrip?

    It looks purdy! Nice mill and everything looks so good. Maybe it needs to go a little nose down, and mess a hole lot with suspension, to make it handle as good as it looks!!
     
  25. My hats off to you. This is the most stealth street sleeper I've ever witnessed.
