First: All due respect to the quality of cars in this thread. Further cudos to those that have the talent to perform 100% of the work needed to build these great rides.
Second: I'm ate up with jealousy, because I wish I had the talent, the garage, the tools, or the time to spend on my project and do 100% of the work.
Third: While my elky was done (mostly done) when I bought it, at least I'm getting to build my first big block. But I can't claim 100% on that either. Machine work was done by Butch Kernodle, and I rely heavily on my brother David (he's got talent and "the touch") during each step of the build.
OD: Like most of you I love cars, I've been into them since 5th grade, worked on my 57 Ford (trans repair) when I was 14, and have sold some of the best cars ever that I should have kept (Chevelle, Camaro, GTO, Corvette).
