    I just verified it in the dictionary - took a look for the word badass and yep.... there was a picture of your car there!

    Can't wait to see the next set showing the final details and assembly.

    Mykk, I've been following along on this build. I don't see anything "Rat" about it. It looks to be an excellent build to me, in fact I 've got a feeling it's gonna show up in a magazine article in the future. Great job, very different concept. Carry on.

    Crikey, when I saw that you'd welded the steering shaft I just couldn't believe it!
    That's a definite NO -NO here in New Zealand.
    Your rules and regulations must be far easier to work with than what we have to contend with.

    Having said that: I still admire the car...she's a bloody pearler!

    Hey Mykk, It's looking great. I have a couple of questions about your build 1)Why haven't you fixed your front spring u-bolt configuration? 2) Why haven't we heard this thing running in a video?

    That is really different. Yours is the kind of car I love seeing at a show. There's lines of the usual chevys, fords, mopars, not that they aren't awesome but we have all seen them before. So it looks like it runs, how is it?

    I love your problem solving in the first one lol, Wow that thing sounds healthy, that's the best feeling firing it up for the first time!

    That thing looks wild! Must be a kick to drive. I love seeing anything other than a small block chevy or ford in a hot rod.
