  2. Here's a pic of the Eldorados letters gettin moved around a bit by various people and the start of our beer bottles next to the car and my award at the show a framed Weesner prints which is oh so nice now back at home on the wall

  24. Had a chat to your hammer bitch thru the week, even droped in and visited the red head bearded people as well. Everyone had a ball. Sorry about Corey but he's not my fault.

    Well done Des and all the guy's involved. Car looked cool inside in the show.

    But the street shoots are where the ride really shines. Still not sure about the beards thought.
