    That T is rad! Cant wait to see it on the beach Mr. Model T!
     
  11. that's kinda like comparing a 76 chevy truck 160Hp 350 to a 350HP 327 vette motor. They're both small blocks, right?

    Having seen what he's got in store for you guys....well... you better bring some big sticks...
     
  12. I've got a bucket of sand right here. My plan is to spread it out on the back patio, break out the kiddie pool, and play with my hot wheels.
