    Thanks guys. Cyclone Kevin in Ca made the heads and intake. He also made me one of the old Cyclone club plaques. They were beautiful.. he puts out incredible stuff. He gave me permission too to have the logo painted on the car.

    Zach Suhr did the lettering.. I believe it's an off white/almond color. If you message him he'll know.

    The dark red paint is a custom mix that I did trying to get close to the color on the Navarro roadster. I got some red and some black and kept mixing until I thought it was right. The staggered style louver pattern is a tribute to the Ray Brown roadster. The seat and acid etched tag that I made is a tribute to my grand pop who was a WW2 vet from Philadelphia.. Near the Navy Yard. Gas tank is two of the old stainless oxygen tanks tig'd together with a filler neck.

    I built it to do some racing and hope to have some fun with it next spring.

    Thanks Mark And Belated Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

    Jerry kept me up on the build, It was very Kool seeing the progress.

    He saw one of the Cyclones plaques that we made for our club back in 1997 Hanging on Zach's rafter in his shop,he asked about it so I shipped him one off and he put it on the car, so he as well as Zach S. are east coast members of the club. ;).

    Jerry, The car as I've said before is stellar.... Just a work of art!!!!!! I know it's winter now, but drive the wheels off of the AV8 and Make Tracks to the GNRS..... It would be nice to see the car there.
    Great to see it on the HAMB.

    That wiring and whatnot gave me an issue there for a bit, and a couple late nights , but so well worth it. More exposure for the sax-man ! Sucks about the clutch b.s. keeping it from making it to TROG :( . Next year , dude ! (Hopefully the Penny Pincher Shoebox will make the trip too)
