Thanks for the kind words, Charlie.  I feel the same way when I see the photos and post 'em on the website.  The guys who are building the liner are, in my eyes, fine artists who just happen to be using race car materials to create their art. 

I know Freud will convey your nice comments to Jim, Jason and Dave...and everybody else who's had a hand in the construction.

Charlie and all the others.....................

I generally go to Hume's on Tuesday and stop  before I get there for our "Board Meeting" that I
share with some gear heads. When I get to Hume's place I look at the car to see what has changed.
Sometimes there seems like a lot to shoot. Other times the progress is slow and I have to search
for a story.
Right now Jason has small tasks that he is doing and Dave is removing parts that will go to be
powder coated. With the tanks out of the chassis, it opens up areas that haven't seen light for a few years. This gives me the opportunity to show views from the past. I'll go to the powder coaters with the parts before long.
Jim was working on the fire extinguisher access doors for the back engine. They have been anodized, reassembled and reinstalled.
Marlo will be up from Oregon today. I'll go back to Hume's with him this AM. So our post this week will include the fasteners for the wheel covers, the coupler on the segmented driveshaft, the belt drive for power from the drive shaft to the center section, and modifications to the torque tube.

We want to THANK all of you for your interest in the project. On www.target550.com, in a month we have viewers in 25 - 27 countries. Since January of this year we have had 900,000 hits on the site. Apparently, the effort on this end and the magnificent guidance and assistance from Ray the Rat is being noticed.

THANX again,

FREUD

The Rat and Marlo made this a marvelous day for me.

They delivered Rufus.

Go to the news section of www.target550.com to meet Rufus.

My wife is no where as excited about Rufus as am I.

There's a little bit of news on the Official Press Vehicle for the Target 500 team.  I'm in Seattle and...well, you could sorta say that Marlo and I have been conspiring to provide a surprise for Freud.  We pulled it off today.  I flew in (and boy are my arms...oh, never mind) and met Marlo and Dick Milne who had ol Rufus, my Model A pickup on a trailer...and things just worked out so that we were at Freud's place with it when he drove up.  You might say that he was caught off guard:



Then he sorta came unglued when he saw Rufus with the official team lettering on it:



After the hootin and hollerin settled down to a mild roar, we took a bit of a trip to Jim Hume's shop where we caught Hume along with Dave and Jason hard at work.  We put a screechin halt to that.  I got a lotta photos...and also got totally exhausted.  But I lived to tell about it and after a little work on Doc's computer, I'm headin for bed.

It was a pretty kool day.

Ray,

How cool is that? Very cool indeed. Has Freud's feet touched the ground yet? Or is he still on cloud 550?
Glad you and Marlo with the help of Dick could pull a fast one on the Master.

Congratulations to all involved.

Asking questions is one's only way of getting answers. As a young boy I was always taught that there is no such thing as a stupid question. It suggests that the quest for knowledge includes failure, and that just because one person may know less than others they should not be afraid to ask rather than pretend they already know. In many cases multiple people may not know but are too afraid to ask the "stupid question"; the one who asks the question may in fact be doing a service to those around them.

I think I detected some ocular moisture -- which would be real unusual for the old fart.

Doc,

What happened to the Moon Discs that were on Rufus?

Tom G.

I still got 'em.  They were a gift from a very special (deceased) friend (Ken Boyd, for any Aston Martin fanatics who might know the name.)  I can't bring myself to give 'em up.

Doc came to visit me at my motel since I gotta leave early...very early.  I can't begin to express my thanks to him for his tutelage in photography as well as his ever-to-be-cherished friendship.  Brett Kepner put it very well at tho 2010 NW Reunion: "Bonneville means Love."  Simple as that.  

I know this is a repeat, but I feel very, very blessed to have such wonderful friends in my life.  Besides...it's not everyday that ya get to hug a dear friend as he's sobbing with joy and emotion.  Made me pretty damned misty-eyed, too.

Ray the (sentimental) Rat

ps.  Spent most of the day at the Museum of Flight.  Toadly Ossum.  I've got some photos that are going on FaceBook but I'll preview a couple here.

First a MIG-17, then an overhead shot of the WWII fighter exhibit (hand-held at 1/2 second shutter speed) then a German dive-bomber (I think it's a Messerschmitt) and a Goodyear (!?!) FG-1D Corsair...all shot hand-held with available light.  I never would have been able to get these shots without Freud's mentoring.

Believe me, the Rat is eminentally capable of shooting those images w/o my advice.

All I said was, "You don't have much time. Look at the airplanes, not the women."
