  7. I always look forward to the Monday updates....A few questions. In an average week, how many hours are you able to put towards the wagon?

    Have you thought about what your going to do with all your spare time when it's complete? :D

  9. Cody , this build is out of this world ! The SU carbs are great , I ran them on some knucks in the 70's . Very easy to start and dependable . Love your wagon and cant wait to start on my wife's . Blue

    In bare metal and in pieces this car was freaking bad ass. Now in paint and more and more pieces making their way on to the car it just keeps getting better and better. Your fit and finish looks incredible in the pictures. Well done man!

    I have been watching this build since the beginning, and it just gets better and better. This car is quickly rising to my top ten list of favorite cars of all time. I know by the end that it will be in my top 5. I truly hope I can see it in person one day.
    Beautiful and inspiring work sir!

    Damn Cody! I know you've been told all throughout this thread, but, you have some crazy mad skills! Not only one of the finest wagons around, but one of the best customs I've seen here on the HAMB IMHO! It looks like it could have been purchased that way in 1959! Top notch buddy!
