Quote from: Reverend Hedgash
We have decided after more than two years of weekends of hard work and a desperate escalation in work rate over the past few months to achieve a runner for 2006 that it will be not in the interests of the sport or us to rush the completion of this project.............


Sorry to hear that, but I fully understand.  I think you guys are making the right decision. I've finally started to realize in my old age that the process should be as much fun as the result.  It took me about a year longer to build my house than anticipated, but it got done and didn't totally kill me doing it.  I'm trying to stay focused on my lakester and make steady progress, but it will get done when it gets done.  I'm having a lot of fun building it and don't want to turn that process into a chore.  It would be great to run at one of the meets this year, but that most likely won't happen cry , but I'll live through it Cheesy .

Go to the salt and have fun and keep plugging away on the car it is only about 13 months before it will have to be done to run in 2007 and that can go by pretty quickly Cheesy .

c ya one of these days,

It'll probably mean a tinnie to the back of the head at the meet this year, but I though you might enjoy some winner shots of these two nutters, taken at Speed Week 04. Put a face to the frenetic build diary: that's The Rev in grandiose wide angle at Lake Gairdner, and Dr. Goggles in his Birthday Suit.

I'm a buddy, also building a car (2 years and counting, run in 07 - for sure!)  and like The Doc and The Rev, recently started a transport truck re-build.

Annus Mirabilis 2010… ah, scandalous times. The pics seemed to fall off the server during a nasty storm a few years ago.
Lost forever… maybe... probably for the best

Hey Doc when you come over here I think you ought to forget about B'ville and go straight to the Burning Man Festival at Black Rock evil .

The pictures were very inspirational and touched many hearts.
 Just this afternoon we have raised over $12k American and after I deduct my
usual fees we have enough left to get both of you in new clothing.
 Not any of that second hand stuff.
 We are going to put it with one of your regularly scheduled air drops every 3 months.
 We just missed the big Christmas deal but the first 1/4 will really go fast.
We hope that will help, actually we are really counting on it.
Jack wink

OBTW: BBB was a little concerned that it looks like you don't eat too good.
 Maybe if you don't spit out all the flies.

our politicians start out in a suit and end up naked.
The big difference is they are all much bigger in the end and the belly button is quite a distance from the backbone.
It looks like you are spending all your lunch money on the car again.

Uh-oh, that Pith Helmut, new for this year, will be doing more than simply shading the dome.

Actually maybe not enough or the choice is wrong.
Be particularly careful when dating out of your species, sometimes they want a long term commitment. wink

........OK.OK ,OK... I've had a haircut , and this year I'm gonna wear a full burka , are you all happy?....and yeah I've got form with sheep , but I never REALLY loved one......work and romance never are a good mix......

 If things go as planned we'll be taking an old Vespa with a heaven and hell scene on the back (in 3D all over the guards ) and Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden on the front , it has a crucifix backrest and we're making a sidecar for it. Make no mistake it will be a dangerous concern , standard brakes and the real possibility of being run over by anything following that is capable of over 10mph......I plan to mount a pair of Super-soakers( one for water and one for the Jammo's) and it will of course have room for an Esky...

Ok Jack , let it roll...............................

That Marriage Mobile sounds like you have given it a lot of thought.
 I see your business really booming.
 The only thing I might suggest is a small trailer suitable for vending.
 You don't want to let the crowd go away wanting. wink

Ah, the smell of a two-stroke hair dryer in the morning, you're tugging at my heart strings now. Me and Animal will be elbowing each other at the front of the Celebrant queue.

You tease, getting even for the photo post no doubt.

It's Mr. Q to you darl's

Our seat for the tank is a front wheel guard from an HZ Holden. Just reposting photos. Called a Vaughn seat after the inventor.
