    You can't imagine how much I appreciate all of the kind words...especially hearing them from my idols and friends on here...you know who you are! ;)

    This has been my absolute favorite project and it's great to be cruzin in a custom again...it's the only way to fly!:D

    Bill, I think the old man has lost his edge! haha
    In his defense, the clear was just a little older than a couple of months old...try a year old, but he busted his ass and turned a shitty story good, make that great!

    Did you say something?????????? haha

    Please, Dan, "Holy cows" needs to be saved for your project. The level you've set the high bar for quality is untouchable by hackers like me!

    Nice save on the cool paint. That little Chevy is so fine I am lost for words worthy of praise for it. Your touches are so dead on correct and tasty.Great to see such an overlooked and rare body style. This is a classic example of H.A.M.B. goals shared by most of us. Congratulations on the restraint and lack of gee-gaws on this timeless beauty. Knocked-out!! ~Sololobo~

    That was the original plan, Jay, but something came up that won't let it happen this year. Hopefully next year!

    Hate is such a strong word...but then again, I've heard that way too many times by better people than you! :D

    I forgot to spam Dave's shop when I posted the update, sorry sweetie!
    If you need a shop on the east coast that can do it all, check out Dave...he does "it all"!!

    Even your wife...awesome!! ;)
    It's a late 60's Mercedes dark red.

    Hey Thomas, it's great to hear from you, been a long time...thanks for the kind words, it means alot coming from you. Your car was always a lot of inspiration for me, and all that help you gave me on the suspension made my job a ton easier. I've got a bunch of miles on it already and I don't think I'd change a thing the way it drives and handles...thanks again!! :D
