    Bass. The "A" won't look the same when you are done with it ! My only other comment would be "WOW . . .WOW . . . wow . . . wow . . . . . . " !

    Man dude, this thing is awesome! I like all the little detail work, and LOVE the I-beam rear spring hangers. You are one awesome fabricator!

    All the carbs are going to open at the same time....no pussy progressive linkage here. :)

    Hey Brian, very nice linkage and carb work. I especially like the shaft mount, but Hey! Show some respect for the Elders in the group who have 8-97's on their Chrysler that may have "Pussy progressive" linkage. They might just come on down to Texas and give you a little bit of "Throttle response" Hah..Hah..Ha....:D
    Let me know if you need something a little more "Exotic" to light those things off.

    This build is truly an inspiration my proverbial hat is off to you Mr. Bass.

    We all know you work primarily alone on this project which a lot of us can identify with. The build thread is amazing but to comprehend just how much work went into this project i have to ask one question.

    Just on the rolling chassis alone approximately how long did it take you from start to finish?

    Man that is some nice work, I really enjoyed seeing it come together pic by pic.
    Doing it like building your own, Just a flat out awesome frame! Good job just dont seem to be good enough for what you did! "Excellence" from the start suits it better.

    I registered on this forum solely to tell you Dr. Brian Bass that you have blown my mind.

    Mind = blown. It's all over the walls...

    I have paid my respects and shall now await future updates like a possessed creature of automotive inspiration.
