    Saw the original at the Porsche effect at the Peterson in LA. The amount of time involved in recreating that car is amazing! Awesome metalwork.

    Owner said it took him 21 sheets of aluminum to make it, all gas welded and planished.  The seams are slightly visible to the eye because they’re a different color, if you look for them, otherwise you can find no evidence that panels have been welded.  It’s unbelievably smooth,   Apparently this guy is much sought after in Porsche circles for the super-rare restos like 550 Spyders and whatnot.

    Man a guy goes out in the desert camping for a week, and it’s hard to catch up with everything. Hope all goes well Franz . I busted my left foot skydiving.

    I got confused… he just said hesperia.. He meant california, I thought colorado… 😎  opps… 😎  I was for sure Jeff had bought something else!!!! 😎

    weather is sooooooo nice out!!!!!!!!!!!

    Yesterday Pat and I got to talking…   KCW has gotten bussier.  Volkswagens have gotten more popular.  There are fewer and fewer people who know what they are really doing on this old stuff…  Fewer shops than ever…    I think in an effort to serve our already existing customers, it’s going to be hard to find time to take in NEW customers…. 😎  If your already in the family… Your a lucky person…. 😎 😎  You can always get work done here…. 😎

    Shoot, everybody has an Instagram shop these days.

    I’d say the hobby in general has grown 25% in the last 10 years. Especially with the popularity(value) of buses.

    The Brit’s are buying junk halfway around the world.

    instagram…. Insta shop…. Insta success…. Insta badd ass…. Funny…   Thats why I still maintain my OWN website.    When instagram has gone to the way side…. I’ll still have my own shit…  I try to funnel people to the website…  Hell… I haven’t posted a working picture in forever… 😎  I want people to know this is much more than a job… Much more than a hobby…   Life style… 😎  What I and we do…  18 years of consistent, predictable, reliable service!!!  In the same place, and never to move… 😎  a compound… where everything can happen under one roof… 😎

    Been slow and quite around here…  Same ol same though… Working on what ever is next… getting projects done and making people smile. 😎

    The ankle is healing. Getting better everyday. I’m a dumbass. I could have avoided all this.

    …but I don’t want to live like that. For the one time I got bit, I’ve had 100 high-fives to my soul…you know that feeling when you perfectly nail a ski line, or get a good 1/4 mile pass, or get 300 likes on an Instagram(haha)? Riding jumps is just like that. Doing a sick whip or table and pumping into the landing perfectly. Nothing like it. As soon as I’m strong enough I’ll be right back hitting that same jump for redemption.

    I agree. I used to use social media a lot more and it is a time suck. I’d rather spend time on sites like this interacting with people that I see in real life. Id rather build the real relationships.

    Social media is causing a lot of depression and suicides in people my age and younger. Social media can be good, but it causes a lot of pain too.
