  1. WOW! That is some good looking machinery there. I’ve had convertibles in the past and have moved on so that tempers my desire somewhat, but there is a little twinge lurking there.

  2. “[…] and Carrol Shelby signed the dash.”
    LOL, he signed anything they put in front of him, didn’t him?

    Great project nevertheless.
