Hello Jeff- I wanted to extend a VERY special shout out and THANK YOU, for when you first laid eyes on my bucket O bolts so many years ago! It really was because of your input that helped me set this whole thing in motion. Thanks my friend... Hope all is well with you and yours!!! ;)

That Bubble Copter was /is apparently like the one in MASH I was told. Thats some scary machinery, I would not want to be more then 10 feet off the ground in that contraption. :-\

Thanks, just ask the military wounded if they enjoyed the helicopter ride to the field hospital.  They provide a lot of necessary uses that can only be done them.  When your Shelby leaves the road and rolls up into a ball, the helicopter ride with the EMTs to medical help will seem heavenly

You've went ALot more on your sleeping Beauty than I did on mine. (Sleeping since 70  71)
Still, I think it would be great for them to meet someday!
You did a great job.

Looking Good!

Is that a slanted grille on your car '427Heaven'?   
It seems a bit late for you VIN number.

Any engine photos?

Thanks to all that have helped me along the way, the compliments, well wishes, and the few that had some not so positive things to say in its looong journey back again. I have a soft spot for cars/people that have been neglected, overlooked, and kicked to the curb, I just cant help myself, There is an accomplishment that many overlook as a real P O S, even the wife has told me over the years..... OH no not another one, :-[ then when they begin to be whole again I get that OH thats Beautiful was that the one you brought home in boxes? ;D. More pictures to follow.
