    Haha. Sadly, no. We'll have to settle for a virtual cattle prod instead.
     
  7. Dude, you are soooo lucky that you got back on track! I got people there that were on call about coming to set you straight. Also, I am planning on a week long trip to see the families and I will come find you!

    I absolutely love your car and everything that you have done. You are one of the most talented dudes here on the HAMB. When you get that car done you will be well respected by the entire car community not just us.

    Keep it up!

    BTW...what kind of beer do you want me to bring you?
