    Thanks for the kudo's I am lucky to get some real cool projects, next is the restore of the Ala Kart, Gotta love it
  6. For me, it'd be a toss up between Sam's merc and the Hirohata merc. I'm not sure which one is my favorite. I lean more towards Sam's. Darryl, I'm looking forward to seeing more of this project. Beautiful.
  7. Are you kidding us, the Ala Kart next!!!!!! WOW

    i just read in the rodders journal that it might make the roundup, thought that I missed it. I never would have forgave myself if I missed it. I really hope to more soon.

    I thought the Ala-Kart was already under restoration at some shop maybe 5 years ago? Didn't it burn in a fire? What's the real story. Would love to hear more about that, one of the best hotrods ever built.

    Merc looks nice too. Any pics of that back in the day? Not sure that I've ever seen it before.

    Any info on the Ala Kart? I remember seeing some pics of the original some time ago. I thought at that time, someone was starting the restoration.
