Dr,

What can I say!  Nothing... words will not express the beauty and skill applied in the making of this.  Very nice job on the wheel. 

Oh... I think I have a bit of your music here.  Let's see MP3, no... CD, no... oh over here, excuse the dust, cassette tape, hmm, no... wait here's the reel to reel, darn, what else...  8 track in the old 76 XJS.  Let me run out to look in the cubby.  Yes there it is!  Audio nirvana soon.  Buggers I'm out of beer!

ya know one of the great things about this forum are the little link-ups.....last night when I posted that mention about the band reunion we had I got a PM from a forum member.....he casually mentions a friend of his....who turns out to be one of my all-time favorite guitar players Adrian Belew....

" ah steering wheel Schmeering wheel..you mean to say ....YOU KNOW , HIM! shocked shocked" so this morning I've been sitting here listening to some of his efforts thinking " small world huh?"

.....btw Geo after Friday night the mere mention of beer made me shudder... evil the evening did not pass unrefreshed rolleyes the reunion was brought on by the wedding tonight of the drummer ...he and the bass player both live in Brisbane ( 1000 miles away) now......me gets the feeling tonight could be , well , a little untidy...........

Hey Doc I think I could handle drinking beer out of that size mug tongue .

I like the interior of the building and it looks like everyone was enjoying themselves.  Hope I get to hear something when I get over there.

So we you haven't heard from Goggles for a while, it is because he is off in Europe looking at museums and old land speed stuff.

....Hear ye hear ye......after a not so brief hiatus...we get back out to the shed this weekend . I imagine the first session back with the car will involve some serious staring at it...then a bit of looking at each other " is this the car?" ....."yeah" ....."where do we start?"....."dunno".....there will no doubt be a serious amount of catching up to do .....I'll be back with some photo's of the small amount of progress this year and our slightly curtailed plans for world domination....or at least domination of our own back yards ..........

Hey , come on people , you've gotta have dreams, even if it's all you've got.......

The Reverend is back on the block.

Been locked away for a year with a project with little time/access to email but now online again.

Looking forward to posting further reports on progress... and seeing sunlight.

Larry , they put him in jail for a litany of crimes, liking old English cars was the main brief, the federal crime of mutiple transmission of pictures of old buses, strange trucks and clapped out race trailers to
his Bellytank build partners,mentioning that he was considering building an electric vehicle and finally ,wearing hippie hats. evil

I'll let him describe the real reason he's been incommunicado , me? I've been studying , working and then I went overseas( I was worried that I had too much money saved up to spend on the car......) Now we have all pretty much run out of excuses.....except of course Grumm who's just gone and bought a sh**** old truck ..I mean a '41 Chev Pick-up.So, on Saturday I put some juice in the bellytank and fired her up....to quote Jon she shot ducks for a little while and then hummed away happily.....We're halfway through our new aluminium seat , the body needs to be painted , the extra fire systems need to be finalised , the chute system nailed ,we have to get the second hand trailer we bought roadworthy and registered and then we're prettymuch ready to go ...that should be easy ..... rolleyes rolleyes

Been up at the farm for a month (2.5 hours east of Melbourne) planting trees. It's volcanic country and so every spade hits an old rock. The neighbour digs holes with dynamite. I'd get him to do it but I might not have any windows left...

Prior to that I was working on a adult stop motion animation feature which will be released next year. I'll definately publish more details closer to release as we are mighty proud of it.

Back to designing theatre sets for the rich now...
