As I looks to see who is on with me today I find Daniel Peterson and Mr. Can Am Garage. Man is it gonna be a great day now. Actually I feel that way about everyone here. There are so many of the great ones in my book here and it makes me happy for being with you all again on the same board. Keep the great builds going and maybe some day my skills will catch up with ya.

Oh, stop it Charlie...Greatness? Me and John?! You really got game when it comes to this stuff, and I admire the work you do...uh, particularly the TBolt stuff. I can't speak for John, but I'm willing to bet he doesn't think you're outclassed even a little bit.

Now, if I could just build something so people around here don't start to accuse me of being a kit collector or an armchair hobbyist. Hmmm...maybe a big block Ford of some type. Perhaps something in a Fairlane.

And it would help to buy the T-Bolt kits so you can finish that project too!

:D :lol:

That, my friend is not the problem with about 5 sitting around...I need to buy the time to sit down and git 'em done!

And of course, I have three major site installations to manage through Labor Day...it isn't looking good for summer.

I would like to get as far as painting the bodies though while the weather is cooperating.

Trust me, nobody wants these blankety-blank things done more than I do.

Maybe you could just build a big-block ENGINE? Not the whole car, just an engine--maybe on a stand.

If you're blocked, start with something small.

I know what you're doing, fella! You're trying to trick me into completing something!

Sorry I didn't comment eariler Charlie. I had to eat and get to work.

I don't know why so many people think I'm great 'cause I'm just a ordinary joe just like you who puts his pants on one leg at a time.

As for Mr. Peterson, to parphrase Adam Savage of The Mythbuster's "I don't consider Dan to be a great modeler. I don't think he's great nor do I think he's a modeler".

Sorry Dan. That's what you get when I watch The Mythbuster's and spend the morning baking my brains while herding a Deere around.

To tell the truth, I think Dan is one of many around here who are great and include yourself in that list Charlie.
