Yes...take lots of pics and save them for him, but show us in the meantime! :D :D

BTW -- you don't need another son do you?  I've always wanted to wrench on true HO TA... :-\ :-\

Sorry you look too tall so you can't fit in the trunk to remove bumper bolts, and if your arms are to fat to get to all the hard to get nuts & bolts I can't use you. I'm sure my son Kurt eat less then you! ;)
Thanks!
Pat

For those of you that don't know Pat.  He has an amazing talent at making great looking, great perfoming cars.  You guys really have to see his '68 Charger.  it is the best looking car I have ever seen.  Great attention to detail!!

Those snowflake wheels look great on that car.
