    I can't say anything that hasn't been said already other than; "I love it!"
    Simple and perfect.

    Hope to run into you somewhere some day, I'd love to meet the two of you.

    What a great project and the end result is right on the money. Real nice job!
    And you really think that this will be your last build ..... I doubt it. ;)

    I just picked up the Oct. 1955 Issue of Hot Rod Magazine on Ebay as well. That was the first magazine the Lightning Bug was in. I am anxious to see what all it says about the car. Great build! Just great!!!

    It's been two months since my last update so I thought i would do a quick one.Did get the stripping done by my old buddy Ron Meyer's.Most of my time has been spent working out the bug's,Like no brakes,bent harmonic balancer,brake line's leaking and rear shock's hitting the frame after the rear spring settled. Got them all fixed,now waiting on the painter to put the flames on and i've got to build the cover for the front spring perch.
    My goal was to have the car ready for the Tulsa Starbirds show in mid Feburary. I think I'm going to make it. Thanks for looking and have a wonderful Xmas.
