    Wow, it is so close. Great job by a bunch of hot rod history loving people. This thread will be read and enjoyed many many times in the future.
    Hey you HAMB artists, how about a theme FAS on the Moonlighter and some of the folks who are putting it back together. I can see some panels in my head, but my ability only lets me draw stick people.

    Charlie Tyre is doing the lettering. He is a local artist that is unbelievable at laying down stripes/letters! Charlie is a great guy and I am stoked that he's the one doing the Moonlighter. We spoke this morning but I couldn't get to Anderson to make some photos for him. Hopefully John Glenn (Anderson Auto Glass) will take a ton! (Hint hint John)

    Charlie will be at Steel In Motion this weekend.

    Wow, the lettering looks picture perfect. I wonder if Gene left a couple of subtle clues yeras ago.
    Like the car number 468 (cubic inches?), and the "F" in Ford Powered has a little curly que on it like "FE"? . --- Steve ---

    First delivery of shirts will be tonight. Shipments will go out tomorrow and local picks can be made at Gene's tomorrow. Remember visit GeneCromersMoonlighter.com, order instructions are available on the site. Lots of good pictures there as well.

    Thanks for the response on the shirts. We will continue to have shirts at least through the event on the 25th. Depending on the response we may continue longer.

    No pics of the deck lid. I read back in the thread where it had "Genes Speed Shop" on it.
