    Very cool..the best thing about this for you is you will know EVERYTHING about your ride..plus all the invaluable skills and experience you will have gained. Keep it up. That's what makes this country great.

    Man this is crazy. I've gotta model a too. If I see you at show, I'm gonna feel like a poser. I built my car, but I didn't BUILD my car. LOL damn!

  9. Wow, you got some crazy skills. I plan on becoming a metal fabricator (working hard on it now) any advice you could give me? You are one hell of a talented guy. Don't see to much of this anymore people would rather go buy some p.o.s. Toyota off a used car lot. Don't see to much work like this anymore. I really enjoyed reading the post. Man if you don't produce these and start a company that is pretty sad. You have the talent to start an amazing buisness and make some big hay and have fun while doing it. I know a lot of people who would want one of these deals just think about it. You could just make bodies, quarters, cowls, roofs, etc. You could make a killing.:cool:

    Don’t tell anyone, but he is researching the trilamination of the tiny spheres with selected metals and their subjection to a magnetic field and current destabilizer’s and orderliness of the proton and how the heavier atom reacts with the individual layers of metal, in order to re-establish a fractal set of pure kinetic energy in hopes of developing a continuum trans-functioner, in an inductive or capacitive load.

    good motivation. Very skilled metal working. Grew up on Long Island, NY and know firsthand how brutal that cold is and how it will stop you in your tracks even if you have a shop (with a space heater). Good to see "young guns" doing things the right way- the old school way. I have nothing but respect for you and your work.
