    Hey now,... I think that's a great idea !!!!! Would sure a make a nice picture.

    Ol Duece, The head fairing looks perfect, your guy did a great job. And you should consider doing an exhibition run if you bring her to bonneville. They let people do it if they have a historic car and keep it under 65 mph. You'll have to get someone to film it. Let me know when and if your going to Bonnevile. I'll try to set it up.

    :)This is cool, Thanks for all the support on this project! It's really close
    and even to drive it will blow me away!
    Rex did a great Job. A run down the course at 65 would be perfect
    Spring is coming ~ Look out salt ~ I will post photos next

    Great post just now read the whole post, I hope the faring arvives safe and let me know if it needs any changes. I have never sat in the tank at the shop but after reading your thread i think i want to just sit in the darn thing to see how it would have felt to run it on the salt. It would be great to see your tank out there.

    If you are looking at the salt Snake it was a Motorcycle and had a motorcycle type of shifter. Isn't the running on the salt car Bobs "Stay In School" roadster?

    The loss of Cliff was very hard on Jack, they became very close during
    the build of this car. That is Cliff in the car,what a cool person. I am
    glad I was able to get to know Him also.........Ol Deuce
