I discovered this board a few days ago, and the workbench photos that you all have posted are outstanding! I've been building for about 5 years, real name is John Vaillancourt (friends call me JV), located in Massachusetts.

Here's a '57 Ford I just finished. The side trim was modified and the vent windows were removed. It's been lowered, and the wheels are narrowed 19" Hellas with Phantom Vickie tires. The engine has the supercharger from the kit and the air intake is from an Acura.

Ever notice how "subtle changes" isn't interchangeable with "minor changes"?

You made some major subtle changes there, and dadgummit, I really love the color combination. Nice, clean and crisp work!!

Hey JV good to see you! I was starting to wonder if the 1:1 show season had swallowed you whole! Excellent work as usual!
