    I have to say that this is one of the nicer modern bubble tops I've seen.
    Awesome job...:D
    There have been quite a few in the past few years.
    I was a kid in the 60's during the bubble top show rod thing and it was super cool back then, especially to a grade school kid!
    Like I said before the Mysterion takes the cake for me. I don't care if the frame did fall apart. The new copy that was built fixed that problem. Does anyone know who bought that Mysterion copy at the Peterson auction just recently??

    I have come to the conclusion that if I am ever gonna complete all the car build ideas I have rattling around in my head, I need to win the lotto, and lock myself in the shop for the rest of my life to get them finished.

    I'd never seen that car, What's the engine in it? How many cars does that bring you up to now?
