    My grandfather and his brothers would meet the rum runners down on the Gulf Coast and transport the Rum back up to north central Mississippi where it was distributed nationwide

    My son-in-law is designing a guitar to go along with the 33. He hasn't finished the concept yet but this is the start. I am very proud of this.

    Nice! I'm an audiophyle in that I restore old analog stereo components from speakers, turntables, tape decks to vintage marantz pioneer, ect.. receivers.
    I recently saw a pair of speakers that were designed in Switzerland using the concept of a guitar and how tones are generated, here is a review of those speakers with a few pictures, just thought they were so cool and interesting Soundkaos 40 loudspeakers

    Getting on towards the final buffing. Ran the car with the hood closed at idle for an hour with no air flowing and it cooled fine, no heat problems at all.

    Pulled the trigger on a Coverking Satin Stretch Indoor Car Cover recently. I chose the British Racing Green.

    We've all made the wrong assumption that the iron you see is his.. It's not. It belongs to the shop his car is at. Other customer cars and projects.

    Sigh... sadly! roflmao 8-)

    No I haven't used them. Of all the companies, they were one of the few that offered the specific Factory Five variant of the 33. They provided covers for FFR at SEMA. Most notably they claim credit for the one that looks like an expat view of a FFR 33. My needs are more for indoor protection from dust and dings. I chose their satin stretch figuring it would be lighter and the stretch fit would not tend to vibrate against the paint due to breezes or other things that cause vibrations. I like working with them, they sent me color swatches of the material outer layer. I chose the British Racing Green. I wish they had an embroidery option like other vendors but since they don't, I will have the guy that did my interior follow up on that. Here are the material swatches against he car.

    I like the tan myself.. I know you didn't ask! ROTFLMAO!

    Good to hear a company wants to work with their customers.

    I don't disagree, had I seen the Tan before I pulled the trigger I might have gone with it. As it stands, I may have the car name, ETHYL embroidered in the Tan. It looks almost gold BTW

    I think the green is a good call. The tan covers show dirt/dust to easily and look terrible after a while. What's it like to need a cover to store one? I've almost forgotten.

    It has taken over a year to get this thing done to the level it is. I've been looking at a C-10 to play with

    It's hard to pass up a good C10. What year group?
