Charles.

The body is in very nice shape; she's looking sharp!  You have been working! 

Jeff's car (C/PRO Firebird) will not be ready to run this weekend for Maxton so it looks like June for us here in north country.

Warmest regards.
John.

Ralt, thanks,,,,

The Glass front end came in Friday as I was leaving for Maxton... Looks good.... The 4 link and all rear suspension stuff came in as well, so if I can get some time set aside, Larry (with some help from me) can get started on the chassis now...

B'Ville,  we are working towards having the car ready for Maxton in Sept and Oct... had thought about Loring in August,, but we got behind on time and $$$$... Maxton in Sept looks doable...

I am crossing my fingers !!!!  more cash or a sponsor would make the job go faster....

Charles, can you tell us a little about the shop where you build the cars. I don't believe that's either of your shops at home is it?

PJ,  you are correct the pics of the Stude are not at either of my two back yard shops ..

The actual "real work"  is done at a shop called  "Rod Crafters"  in Welcome, NC. (4 miles from my house)
