    Thanks guys. Weather was great today so I rolled it outside for a few more pics. Really like these black & whites! wish my house was a little more period looking.

    Man, this car was one of my three favorites at the GNRS. I couldn't get enough of it. I really appreciate these outdoor b&w shots. Your execution on that chop is flat amazing as is the stainless and the bodywork. WOW. Congrats to all involved.

    Those are some really nice near sun set photos you took Kevan.

    The car looks so absolutely stunning in the photos... and it looks even better in real live.
    Thank you for your hospitality a week or two ago. It was so great to walk around at your place and look at all the great stuff you have and fantastic work you do.

    And the high light for me of course was to see the Kirkegaard Merc in natural light. The first time I saw it was at night several minutes before the gates closed at the GNRS in Pomona. And after that at the show. But there is nothing like seeing a new custom in its natural habitat. With the reflections of the road, the sky and the trees around it.
    What a great custom, you and Adam did a fantastic job.


    This is one photo I took when you drove the car up to the photo shoot for Gasoline magazine. I took many more photos of it, but I promised per Webb to wait showing them until after his article has appeared.

    And here is the sign I made for the car when it debuted at the GNRS at the end of Jan 2013.

    Thanks Chopit
    We arrange Euronats this year
    If everythings goes well, the car will be at Euronats
    Looking forward to see you there
    Remenber to have your entrance tickets soon, you can order at Billetnet, there will be plenty of camping, but the hotel is soon sold out
    It is less money if you preorder too :)

    I've got a hunch that Kevan is going to find it hard to give this one up.
