    I have followed the build from the start, and you have done a great job so far. I'm anxious to see it finished up!

    Spring Fever

    Well now that all the snow has melted off Four Peaks, time to get to the garage and get some work done..

    First off, the original block is looking great. All nice and clean. needs to be detailed cleaned before the cam bearings go back in.



    Its really nice when parts are so clean, that you can almost not tell they are there..







    Some detail that is sometimes over looked, but not here.





    The Hard work just keeps rolling on..

    John,
    It's hard to come up with more accolades for the work you have performed. It is truly an amazing accomplishment on a very rare car.
    Cheers, Bill

    I cannot think of a better advertisement for the upcoming Pacific Southwest Zone meet in 2020 than to see the Whistler.

    I was fortunate enough to go to Phoenix Saturday thanks to my neighbor, Shawn Miller. Met some faces that I'd seen before at the La Palma meets & a few new faces too! Hearing now George Krem was there & not meeting him is a bummer but the highlight of the day for me after the meet was going to John's place & seeing the Whistler in person! It looks terrific! All the work that's gone into it is nothing short of top notch. Thanks John for the tour of your place. It capped off a great day & I'm looking forward to going down there again.

    Jim, I know, I will order a set before early May (from Towel City I think) when I take Ed's loaners back (to SB). So I have less stuff setting around...his are still on the car, but jacked up so they are not touching the ground in the heated garage (had to add that to make Ed know I am taking care of the old stock loaners)

    You need a pair of pie crusts for the rear.

    Thanks for the update. I was a bit afraid I had discouraged you a bit with rushing and having my car lettered at the MCACN. I think your car and its history is more impressive and I admire what you have done and hope you get it to MCACN next year. I am starting to think that restoring a Stude period drag car is about as "cool" as it can be.

    It's nice to see an update, and the carburetor looks like a piece of art! Hope to see the Whistler complete this year.

    Wholly Cow!

    SO,

    I cant believe I have not posted anything in a while. It took a Grand Canyon meeting at the Martin museum to kick me into gear..

    Was surprised to see George Krem at the meet as well. I showed up late, so I didn't get many photos of the cars, but it was a nice turn out.

    When I finally did arrive, I handed John the restored Carburetor for the Whistler..

    Not much for a post but hope you enjoy and know its in the works..
