    Sea blue just pops, take a few more outside before you turn it loose!

    Not in a hurry……kinda like Paul Masson…will sell no wine before it’s time….lol!

    I’ll wait for you to give me the green light on shipping….and I’ll have the shipper work with you on when it’s convenient for you as to when they come…Hey, they work for us, right?!

    Happy Easter!!!

    Toto, I've a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore!

    I guess I shoulda called her the “Love Bug” cause I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE looking at the pictures AND the video!!!!

    Like I’ve said before, this is one incredible effort and I can’t begin to tell ya how much I appreciate all the hard work that went into making this happen.  I think you guys hit the mark and went beyond in making Sunny the best car in my collection.  I’ve never had anyone build a car for me, was something that just came together when I talked to you guys – Just about borrowing some wheels to get her on the trailer…lol!

    It’s been really cool watching a 40 year “vision” of a Sea Blue ’66 come together for I think everyone that’s been watching….friends, family, and especially my Mom! (Who at 94 is patiently waiting for her “ride”…lol!)  I never owned a metal Sunroof car, have had a number of ’66s….always liked ’em.

    The pictures DO look fantastic against that Colorado sky!!!!  Hopefully we can bring a little bit of that cool air down to sunny FL and keep us out of “hot burning hell” for maybe another few days until summer kicks in…..

    Tom I found the PERFECT license light bracket out on an old decklid.. slides under the light mount👍🏻👍🏻  No holes required.  And I got a nice jack with handle 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

    Tom..,  your done!!!!   Trunk liner and wiring cover …. I can’t think of anything else to do but enjoy it!👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻🙏

    Tom has been stuck in that limbo spot where I am trying to get him out the Thursday Club but there are still a few small time consuming stuff.  I’m trying to stop billing him, trying to juggle another customer into the Thursday club..  and then a Race came up 😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁
