    Of all the things that will influence that kid from now until he is grown you guys might just have been involved in the most positive one. good on everyone who was involved and be sure to keep us updated as the car is worked on.

    such a cool story.

    javier, i can't get into your albums either. i wonder if there is just too much traffic for the hamb servers to keep up or something.
     
  12. Great story!! Started my day out right.
    Thanks.

    That looks like a pretty good start.

    I just finished doing the 'aerostar springs' lowering trick on my shoebox this weekend. Looks a LOT better to me, but I can't get the pictures off my camera this morning...

    (here's the aerostar springs post... http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/showthread.php?t=260795 )

    just an idea to think about

    Cool I can see them now! It looks like you've got a pretty good platform to work with overall. Are you going to teach Jack to weld and fabricate?

    Damn I'm out of the loop. Greg, Rick, Javier...awesome. Just awesome.
    Sometimes I wish my oldest was interested in helping me with cars...but we'll see.

    Good luck Jack...you've already got a bunch of support.

    And I have a spare welder when you need it.
