    Hi Keke,
    I really like the look.
    Can I ask you how you did/what you used for the satin bumpers?...Looks really good against the gloss red.
    Thanks for posting it,

    Hi Gregg,
    I'm posting my conversion of the Scion Xb dashboard to left-hand drive. I'm also posting a shot of the back which shows some of the work/changes behind.
    The conversion isn't perfect (or finished) but will get me past my aversion to right hand drive. (with the exception of replicating race cars.)
    Would enjoy seeing more conversions, as there must be more out there.

    Hi Tom,
    I love the builds, well done. I especially love the under-hood slant-six...so glad you didn't glue the hood closed. My first car was a Dart with that same mighty mill, and it kinda' looked just like that.
    Thanks for posting,
    Brian.

    Oh, and great angles with the photography...makes it really fun to view.
    Thanks for posting it James.

    Hi Harry,
    That is a pretty build, but I am especially taken with the design and execution of the woodwork.
    But it is all so pretty really, and so crisp and clean!
    A pleasure to see, thanks for posting it Harry.

    ps I just have to tell you that I smile every time I read your Groucho quote.

    Hi Ferby,
    Now, that is nicely done!
    I really like the profile. I like the coves at each wheel. I like the paint and scallops...I like it all.
    Did I say I really like the profile?
    Nice build Ferby, thanks for posting it.

    Hi Tom,
    That is so cool. Didn't know that you were into that sort of thing, and I find that cool as well.
    I really enjoy your appreciation of the period materials,styling, craft, and workmanship...it couldn't be in more approving hands.
    Thanks for showing it Tom.

    Hi Dann,
    That is a beautiful build, and I just love the under-hood view...it makes me want to keep looking at it.
    I also like the look of the rivets, but I can't get my head around their installation.("photo etched parts from Model Car Garage that are placed on there individually.) Zounds.
    Really nicely done Dann, thanks for posting it.
