    Awesome, lot of cool stuff going on with that car,

    I love seeing old customs with a history so close to where I live now. Chauffers-Paterson NJ

  3. A rare bird with fat fenders and quads that actually work together. I'd love to hear that Y rumble too. Sweet car and cool story.

    I use a Mac to counter my lack of skills. I went back and added spaces so you were right on point. Thanks again for the heads up.

    WOW!!!! What a story and the real thing to back it up. Wonder if Garlits bent his ear about donating it to the museum or made him an offer to buy it. That would be a good place for it to be dislayed as a few thousnd people a year would get to see it.

    As poverty said...WOW! If the paint is 20 coats of lacquer it could get buffed and probably come back to life. Great story.

    Rodder's Journal NEEDS to cover this!
    Custom guys, here is your blueprint!
    If it's a fresh coat of paint and some polish he wants, I can see that.
    I don't look down on the Hirohata Merc for fresh paint!
     
  29. Dig the car!! Do you mind str8 6 str8 edge if I use your pictures in a story i wrote about it on Kustomrama?
