    That is super cool! Great idea and way to keep the family involved!
    I just had a question. I'm about to put a seatbelt and carseat in the back of my '56 Pontiac.....I may have missed it, but what are the seatbelts bolted to? Is it just the sheetmetal for the floor? If so will that be strong enough in case of trouble? Not picking, just looking for ideas myself!

    Typical Neal Jennings craftsmanship.:)

    Exquisitely done, beautiful and functional. Almost be a shame to cover the quality of your work with paint.

    But it's gonna be beautiful when it's painted, too.

  23. Neat idea and very well done!
     
  24. Outstanding. Brilliant mind and craftsman!!
     
  25. It may not be "traditional", but it may become the new traditional! Your craftmanship is a benchmark for the rest of us to set our sights on.
    Those little critters grinning in the back is what is the most important. They will remember fondly the rides in "Dad's Hotrod".
    Great job!!!!
