I feel your pain! It took 2-1/2 years to frame off and extreme mod a 66 corvette that orginally was going to take 6 to 8 months. I said I would never do that again, now I have a 2010 Camaro that has been in the shop way more than I've had it. It was and will be worth the wait but when you hear the word "soon" it could be a month or a year...............
Hope to see it at the next fest for sure. I was like you. I made the fest but the car didn't.

Don't get me wrong - the guys have done great work, it's just when there are many projects going on simultaenously the calendar time multiplies.


A FEW extra hundred???

I am truly speechless....

I can't wait to see you light'em up!

It will be worth it. Any ETA for completion ? You always do such excellent work so I am sure it still has some time left.

Andy,

I've never had the pleasure of meeting you, but I know of the great work you guys do, and I've recommended your shop to several friends in the OK and North Tx area...

This TT project shows why... That's some amazing work going on... Can't wait to see the end result...
