    Unless there's another that looks like that it was at the Auburn In. auction Labor Day week-end. I have no idea if it sold or not

    I have seen it before.. I believe it has always been that color. Perhaps he had it built for an owner that does not like to show it that much. I think I have seen it at a sort of concours type show a couple of years ago. I never cared much for its color.

    I don't think Rick has ever claimed to be a builder... As far as I know, he is more of a general contractor.

    I was not trying to be a dick, I just never seen this car before and was wondering about it, usually Rick takes the new cars around to the shows to get more work!

    Hope he's found better builders in the last few years. The Tangerine Dream '36 Ford was an amazing looking car. The lines were perfect and the whole thing just flowed so well.... but it as never built to be off a trailer. Body flex galore. We spent months sorting out the wiring and suspension problems.

    Rick has always put out nice eye candy. You're right this one has kept a low profile.

    I am with you John.... I have kinda followed Rick and his different cars, or rather just been in the usual places for 20 or so years. I, also, have never seen that one either...
