Lupe,

Just met you and saw your car at the car show. Looks fantastic in person! My kids aren't into car shows (except my daughter, go figure), but all three agreed they loved your car.

First thing my wife asked when we headed out was "when are you going to do the doors?" So I guess I know where next years bonus is going

Lupe -

All of the work you have done on Sweetness is an inspiration to all of us. Your "I can do it" attitude is infectious. And for anyone that longs for a new ride, this is the money shot. Looks incredible - just like liquid glass. The red and black "pop" and all the body mods scream "this is THE car to own - a Camaro".

P.S. It was great hanging with you at C5FestII at the host hotel. Sweetness lit up the night then too.

thx Bruce, it was awesome to put faces to usernames. thx for the words, when someone says something negative, we blow it off and say it doesnt matter. When someone say something nice we love it. i think all the comments we get "matter" . thank you very much see you again soon

But then again - is this the daughter that paints those wicked pics ?

If so she is a little more talented than the norm...

Nice mod thought. Post the pics of the finished product when done !!
