    I finally finished my car, a little late for a 2013 test drive but I'm ready for this year. It will be shown in Toronto at MegaSpeed at the end of March....glad to be finished! Thanks to those involved. HRD.

    Outstanding! You did an amazing job. And that's just about how clean you got your garage. The car looks great too!

    Super job. Something about those '57 post cars in the gasser style looks like it was just meant to be. That rear wheelwell treatment carrying the character line over the arch is the kind of detail that sets some apart. Sweet.

    Awesome Don, It sure looks like it was worth all the blood sweat and tears. I can hardly wait to see it at Mega Speed. See you on move in day, I have to take another car down there for a customer. Larry

    Very Cool! I have been building a 57 Fairlane 500 Club Sedan for the last 3 years and it will never be as nice as yours.
    Mine had so much rust that I am just saving it from the crusher and building a Gasser with what I had.

    Good Job.

    I've never driven it yet, but as soon as the snow is gone and the streets are clean....I'm driven. I have a Speedway front axle, it comes complete with everything you need including disc brakes, not a bad price.
