    That is a very nice car! There sure isn't much room in them. I'd still pry in one any chance I got though.

    Wow, that thing is beautiful. Looking at you in the Vette reminds me of Tom Selek in Magnum P.I. with his Ferrari. His head was above the windshield too

    I've never seen The Adams Family so I had to google who Lerch was. Your right, I'd say Tom Selek is more of a compliment

    it was my banker. we have been friends for over 30 years. really enjoyed the build but it was in really bad shape with a tremendous amount of damage. not many quality body parts then so it was all repaired

    Beautiful resto. The comments about you being so tall is like a friend of mine; he's 6' 6", and because of his financial situation, he has long had a penchant to buy small (little) cars. Seeing him in a Geo Metro was funny, because he had to lean his head over to the side to see out.

    I have a good friend here in NZ that has a complete unrestored 1960 Corvette that he purchased in California on one of his working holidays that somebody had removed the small block and manual gearbox from. It was a reasonable conditioned complete car apart form the missing engine etc so he had to have it. I have photo's of it at his home here in NZ but they are on my cellphone and for some unknown reason, I'm having trouble transferring them for the phone to the laptop but I will continue trying as you guys am enjoy seeing what he has in it now, 354 cu.in. hemi.
    I maybe a little crazy but it stops me going insane.
