I look forward to the completion and all the steps in between. As a former bodyman at a restoration shop, I can appreciate the work you are doing. You seem to have a vast knowledge of mechanics also, and you seem to be doing an amazing job. Keep up the good work!
A rare focus

I'm not into muscle cars and like I said before if I wasn't in the right place at the right time this car would not exist and I would be building up a 964 911 instead.

If I would have had the money at the time I might even have been driving around in a Lancia integrale evo right now as I passed on one for sale in New York. I heard they are a pain to keep running though.

The people who know what is will appreciate it, the people who don't will wonder
