ID:	1759628Well, she is finally put back together....and had her first "wash job" since the new paint...finally becoming proud of my "problem child" after many frustrating problems....I think Jim Spivey would be happy....don't ever ask me how much money I've spent on her 'cause I ain't going to tell you....and if I did?....the family would have me committed to a mental institution........probably with just cause....

        Very nice! BP
        We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

        Ayn Rand:
        "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

        G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

          A very appropriate color for that body style. Well done!

                Lou,
                Who cares how much it cost when the end result is so stunning? It becomes immaterial and you probably don't want to know the answer nor the amount of hours of labor to get it to this level.
                Drive it and be proud.
                Bill

                    Congratulations, on getting her finished up, and on the road. Now, you need to look for a NEW project!

                        So long as it makes you happy, damn the costs. I spent way more than is justified for my 1962 GT Hawk and yet I feel as dandy as the average financier during the 1920s.

                          "So long as it makes you happy, damn the costs." I agree. I am a little "Under Water" on my Hawk also, but I didn't build it to resell, for a profit. The overages will be written off as entertainment, as I enjoy driving it.

                            What color is that?
                            I would bet that it is Bordeaux Red, but it appears darker being that the visible side of the car is shaded from the sun.
                            Lou, find your self a nice backdrop and photograph the car with the sun behind your back. Then send it to Turning Wheels for a cover photo!
