yes, I am very happy and looking back thru the years, what a job it was . Thinking a year maybe or 2 at the most , but when there are no parts to be found or takes years to put all the parts togeather , time got way out of hand, but got to do it right , so the long resto. is what happened . will see how it does at the Street Machine Natl. Show . Wish me luck..... SCya.............D.Wilder

Jeff , sorry it was to late when I got this email from ya, I was there, had a great time fri. and sat till the rain came late in the afternoon on sat. Sun was the long drive home . hope you had fun as you can see it is a great show, but the weather did slow down a lot of what was going to happen at all the hotels, most of the fun and wild fun is all over the hotel, where most stay at, burn out contest and wild girls , this year was the 1st time back for the show in years , so im sure as the years go it will get back to the wild show that it was all well know for , trust me seen a lot there thru the years . .

Dan, sorry we didnt get a chance to meet up. We had a great time at the show, and we both got sunburned even with repeated applications of sunscreen. We left on Saturday around 3:30 when the dark clouds started to roll in. We had a pretty good drive home (425 miles) with only spotty rain in the morning. Not too many FOX Tbirds there, as you know. We got lots of "cool Tbird" comments from quite a few people.

Sorry that I did not meet up with ya, did you happen to see my Pace car there ?? So many cars there , I did not see your car there , but we walked so far and then stopped, cant see it all in a day so we went back to our car area to rest up, yup we all got the sun burn too, went home Sun. and ran into some rain , not much but the car was inside my trailer . That was the 1st time back for this show in 18 years, but this year to me was about half the size and will grow , last time we were here , last show in 94 was about 3 thousand cars, this year my guess was about half that .
