Still sounds like a car that most of us can only dream of, and I'm sure you will love it. For absolute performance, I think there's other starting points that we can all agree would be better than a G (of course, none of us would agree which starting point is "Best"), but between the type of work you are doing, the quality standard it will be done to, and the story of the car, this will be an amazing build that I know I'm looking forward to.

Someday I'd love to be able to drop that kind of money on a car, but for pretty much all of us here, I doubt that's in the cards right now.

Hi Hunter,

Thanks for the positive encouragement. The car will be very pretty when done, and your correct. I’m still very fortunate to have the resources to finish the build too a fairly high level. Age does have a couple benefits, time and a little money to play with. laugh

Regards,
Ron

Looks like fun. Will you add Miracle-Gro to your frame (couldn't resist!)

TQ on that motor: the curve looks flat and broad, always a good sign. You're well beyond a 50% torque bandwidth.

This week the frame comes in and the car moves to the shop where the rotisserie resides. Won't be long and we can see how pretty I can make her again. cool
