    I heard rumor's (emails that were forwarded) that the Rudy 1940 Mercury coupe was making it's debut @ the Motorama and I can't find any pictures of it. I have been watching this on Rudy's website get built over the last couple (?) of years. This car looks like it is going to be raising the bar for a while.

    Just wondering if it was there........or is it a different color now?

    I saw the car in his shop a few months ago and was sure it would be done by now. That show would have been perfect for it. I am starting to think it won't be shown.

    I have a few images of the car that were sent to me, but I don't have permission to post. I'll see if I can't get that permission... Rudy is on another level... So damned talented.

    These were on Google image search, so I guess they are fair game.

    Rudy was a stop on the 1940 Ford club tour of shops. No one was taking photos that I saw. His shop is like a clean room at a computer factory.

  18. That's it, I might as well just stop building cars altogether. The bar has been raised and then sent to the moon.

    Maybe I'll try pottery?
