Even though I saw this stunning build in person a couple of weeks ago in Tampa, I still drool over it in these pics.

Outstanding job as usual, Dave!

This car is more realistic than my daily driver and I'm sure that it's a lot faster than mine too!!!

The attention to detail on this thing is simply mind blowing.

I had not looked at this one because it was a funny car and not really interested in them that much (although I do have the Mongoose 57 Chev Funny car). I'm glad that I did now.

Time to quit rambling and get on with improving my skills. I think I may be this good given a couple more lifetimes to practice. :lol:

Excellent craftsmanship...your attention to detail is fantastic
aren't modern funnycars fun to build, exhausting though - I was totally "pooped" after building Ron Capps Brute Special

I really enjoy following your builds on the forum...they are an inspiration and a benchmark to use as I "pa-diddle" with this hobby...looking forward to seein' what builds you have in the future

thanx
