    Awesome Paul! Haven't got started on my build yet. Spent the spring and summer on honey do projects that needed to be done. Our back yard was overgrown when we bought our place, my grandson cleared 400' of fence row this summer. Couldn't see the chain link fence, gained 15' of yard all the way around. .

    Haven't purchased a body yet, after looking at Don's Bantam I've decided to go that route instead of a Bucket.

    Ive posted pics of my progress here and there, but no build thread - I will try to organize some of my pics and start one......that way I can stop Hijacking this one (even though Don said it was OK)

    I've just read this entire thread today. What happened? finish it? make some runs? sell it? did I miss something somewhere? It was looking pretty good. If I'm out of line, I apologize, just wondering.

    What happened to this project? What Happened to Don? No activity on here since 4/29 - thought of this because of Roothawg's Altered Organization Thread

    Don was building a late model Mustang for a daily driver before he dropped out of sight. He was also on another board I frequent, nothing from him on there in a long time either. I think he is in his 70's, so I hope nothing happened to him, but you never know.

    mav i think i may have his number in a bucket buddies list, if i remember i'll check. i do know he has been here since being at the other site. i did pm him a couple times but never heard anything from him. that is why i never looked for his number, and really don't want to bother him.

    Thank you 26T, hope everything is ok with him. I know about life getting in the way. I was gathering parts to start a build inspired by Don and Pnevells altered. My wife had a stroke a few years ago and everything has been on hold since then. Hopefully I will get back on track this spring.
