as I said before John you have the ability to turn plastic into art. are my eyes decieving me here, is that a ford motor under that hood. glad you did not go the traditional way and put a chevy motor in there. Now I hope I did not offend any chevy fanatics out there, just saying its nice to a ford motor-vated by ford power. and for the record I love chevies.

John I am amazed to see the speed with which you get things done on the models you work on. I get on a roll some days and get a lot of stuff accomplished, but you're like a madman...

I agree with Ramfins. The speed at which you get things done is as impressive as your builds. The rolling dyno truck you built would have taken me 5 years.

Nice work btw. Look forward to the end.

Hold on to your hats ladies and gentlemen, the artist is at it again. I am excited, I learn new techniques every time you make a model. Awesome work keep it up. At this rate will be done before christmas.
