no, i haven't abandoned the mike hill '69 camaro. hopefully i'll be able to get back to it soon. in the mean time i started this roadster. it will be a salt flat car. it may not be 100% correct. it's mostly a fun kinda build.

 

i already started the motor. it's an ardun headed v-12 w/ a 16-71 roots blower.

wow!

 

edit to add: after seeing this i went back and revisited my thread asking about the ardun v-12 and realized it was  you who posted those pics of the fantastic motor. great to see what its going in and that brass chassis ought to be something when its done!

thanks for the comments guys!

 

joe, i have a large metal cabinet with sliding glass doors (it's not as nice as it may sound) in my basement. i keep them in that.

 

two of my cars and one engine were built specifically for very good friends of mine.
