The car is really looking beautiful.  You are going to create a masterpiece so nice that you are going to be afraid to drive it.  I have been down that road with a 66 mustang convertible.

Your car has turned out to be absolutely a gorgeous car.  You have worked so hard and it shows.  Everyone in the Netherlands will be staring at you when you are cruising by them.

today my son and I went for a drive, mainly in Germany (cheap gas) Although the car is not 100% finished Wink  Yes, it is an eyecatcher, wether a 10 y/o girl or a 70+ senior, they all looked at the car. Funny how much friends on FB wrote to me that they saw me driving today. LOL! It was a Sunny day, however, the pictures are shot just before sunset.
