    Just saw your car in a magazine last night, but don't remember which. Got three new mags yesterday, so it was either in Streetscene, Street Rodder, or Fine Homebuilding.

    Dave, While your doing all the body work anyways, put some lincoln quads in her, shes beggin for them.. Kirt says dont be afraid of the metalflake on her eithier.. Cant wait to see it done..maybe i can come down sometime and help you on a wednsday night or something... Nate
     
  16. That POS isn't beatup until it's been run through a few Michigan winters Dave.Just pack it up and send it out here and I'll do it up right fer ya!
    BTW Jerry Bennett(the guy who built my 57 Safari)called last night and wanted his car back(yeah right).He's living over in back of Sonny Pasternak's shop in Hamilton now.I told him to go harass Sonny for awhile.Jerry had a pig valve installed in his ticker so he's housebound for awhile.
    Maybe if my wife gets hungry enough for a Hilltop steak or a couple of lobsters,we'll sneak out for a couple days.TTYL

    Your car has one of my favorite chops....

    Shiny black Mercs look like this when finished. My buddie Brad at the HAMB Drags last year. The pic does not do it justice.
