I wish that with what that car has on it for specials, one offs and beyond top shelf, you could duplicate that build. You don't have to like all of what Boyd's guys did, they usually did have good pieces in a car. Some day I'll get brave and figure out what mine cost to build - and I might find that I exceeded even that figure on my '31 killmyretirementfundmobile.

And that current photo at the top of my header - shows the contrasting colors
