Looks nice, John! but is it just my eyes or does that front end "T" with the brake lines look like you wouldn't be available to turn the front wheels left or right? if it was a real car.. or am I just seeing things? I'm alittle tired right now.

A question just popped in my feeble brain.
Does the pics you take help with the detail
or drive you into the "got to fix that" black hole.
Thanks John..

always awe inspired ..

I am enjoying watching this one come together. I have seen quite a few of your completed builds at shows and being new to this forum it is a first watching one of your masterpieces being built. Thank you for sharing and inspiring those of us without your incredible skills.
