    Good eyes Rich, yes they are motorcycle headlights a friend gave me so I could run H4 bulbs without having a crystal clear lens.

    I am pretty sure that if Kaiser had had you on board in the 50s, they'd still be in business! Awesome car, any way you want to measure it!

    " Having Gene Winfield paint the car, and Jay Leno driving and interviewing you..." WTF ? Dude !!! You are blessed in so many ways. I am certain that you understand how significant this is. Much respect, so happy that you have been recognized for your talent.
    Carry on, make us proud.

  15. Watching that build was inspiring, the results are spectacular. Kaiser had that beautiful simple grille and beautiful lines. Very clean.

    Great video, I saw it a couple of days ago. You know, I had never even heard of a kaiser before watching that you tube clip, which is weird as I know a lot about American cars!

    Your mods were great by the way, good use if an old caprice cop car chassis as well :)

    Damn I had one stock but same ride height like 10 plus years ago, had to sell it because I had no money. This is REALLY making me regret that decision!!!!

    Congratulations! As cool as I thought the car was after seeing it in Scottsdale and GNRS and in Rodder's Journal, I am even more impressed after seeing this and hearing what all went into it. This video really brought it and your skills to life. An amazing car building adventure.

    Fantastic workmanship! Outstanding paintwork! Beautiful interior! Reminds me of JF Launier's Kaiser he did a few years back (desertspeedshop.com). Did you get any inspiration from that car? You should be plenty proud. What's next?

    Congrats! That's what I love about this site, seeing the outstanding builds. So many skilled craftsmen on here.

    Really amazes me how you guys take a rusty piece of scrap headed for the crusher and turn them into works of art.
