Coming along very nicely John. It is so nice to have another one of your builds to follow.

just caught wind of this one and browsed through it. Your ability to pick interesting subjects is unrivaled. Great progress so far. Looks like you changed your plan on the engine cover hinges.

John are you winging the suspension on this one or do you have some pics or drawings you are working from?

As always, inspiring work.

Guess I've been hiding under a rock 'cause i just discovered this with the help of MasterCaster, who pointed me in the right direction.

John - you definitely don't disappoint. This is such a stellar build so far. What a unique and interesting subject matter.

Although it was used to haul to races in Europe, it was used in the US from 1960 to 67. I think when it was ordered scraped that was done in Florida.

The carrier portion of the Blue Wonder narrows significantly. Are there hidden ramps/plates to put in there to get a car on or off?
