    I got to see Her Mink and meet Matt at the Indy World of Wheels this weekend. Matt has built a beautiful Hot Rod, and it will be driven a lot and soon. Thanks Matt good to meet you.

    Ahh man, I wish - and I will try to in the future but right now my resources (or vacation time, money, and truck/trailer lol) are pretty limited.

    Some of these guys do them all and I just don’t see how they get the time and money to make it happen.

I definitely didn’t sit out to build a show car, but it’s a fresh build so it’s still shiny.

    I had a great time, people loved the car. I actually brought home the only 2 ‘choice/pick’ awards that they even have, The Hi-Winders Pick and the Evan Mason Memorial Award. I think those ones mean a lot more to me than the ‘judged’ points award (But I did get 2nd in Traditional Hot Rod!)

    That was a fun weekend, thanks to everyone who followed along. The car is a running, driving and stopping vehicle now but they are never finished. I currently have a polished hood, custom grill, and a couple of other things in the works. So, I will continue to post my updates here...

    Great job! Good thing it doesn't have bumpers or you couldn't shut the garage door! :cool: I do the same thing, show them while they are fresh and they go have fun making them dirty. Enjoy! BB

    Just a little update; car is driving great - had to iron out a few small things. Still have a couple more things to run to just get the speedo and tach working.
