Beautiful work on the details John; especially the steering wheel. And, as usual, your metalizing is as good as it gets.

Inspired work !

John....What's up with the Transmission?....In post 38 you show a 4 speed, with very nice detail by the way, and now you are adding a dipstick for an Automatic Transmission....This is not right....You knew that though, didn't you?....

John, do yourself a favor and do a little research on the differences between manual and automatic transmissions .......... manuals like in this build do not have filler tubes nor cooler lines going to the rad. Also would not have Park Neutral 1st 2nd 3rd on the shifter knob. Come one man, in this day and age with how EASY it is to research stuff like this ........... Thought you might have learned from the same blunder on the 68 Larson Camaro ,

John,

Any occasional lapse in accuracy or continuity doesn't diminish the inspiration your control over texture, color and contruction detail provides to me and, I'm sure, many others.

Keep on keepin' on,
B.

Well, this thread took a sour turn. :(

I had already poked at John about his transmission details, when there was no response I let it go...

Can we just let this go and enjoy John's work when he puts it here?

Thanks, Harry.

Just another example of why this board is head-and-shoulders above most.
