  3. Ron,
    Great story dude....I really like the shit eating grin on the 15 year old boy's face....Like I got me a deuce and it is all mine.....The overlay is very kool also. Plus it is the same shit eating grin on your face. I think you should take another one when you get it home after all these years.

    Ron, That has to be one of the best "lost and found" stories I have ever read on the HAMB!
    I am so very happy for you!
    All the best with your new old car!

    very cool indeed. awesome story. awesome photo overlay. how many people have a story that cool? is that a crease in the beltline? i think id leave that. gives it character. kind of a birthmark.

    All I can say is, that has got to be, hands down, the coolest "lost & found" story I've ever heard!! Clearly, it was meant to be!
    And, that second picture you morphed tells it all...Well done, RON!! Your story made my day!

    Eric

    PS: Now THIS tale would make a great story for a magazine, eh?

    Incredible story -- what's the plan? ...put it back the way you had it or build it the way you always wanted?
