    Love it. Good work man. I've always been a big fan of your work ever since I saw one of your trucks up at a Hagerman show. Keep it up.

    Nice blue. Lotsa nice subtle touches on the car. Bodywork & paint came out very nice. I'm not feelin' the chop too much though... Needs a bit more of a crown over the rear side glass area of the roof but overall, it's a killer car and much better than most I've seen :)

    WOW, I've not been a big fan of that style of chop but you nailed it. That car is the whole package and everything flows together great. That shade of blue is perfect for it too.

    This is pretty much the exact car that I want to be in my garage some day.

    Did you have access to an english wheel, to form the rear roof pieces or was it a hand and knee thing??

    Fantastic rake on the roof! Nice sail panel work too. That is a tough spot to pull off well and I think you nailed it.
    Sweet ride. You and your pals should be proud of a job well done.

    I formed the metal by bending it over my dogs back. He was the perfect size. Just kidding I have an english wheel.
