CONGRATS!  Wow that is one beautiful car!  The first photo looks like a plastic car model.  So perfect!

Naaah, not perfect, you just learn how to hide the bad stuff!  ;) ;D

You still gonna make the Bandit Run?

Incredible car - definitely a labor of love, and we're ALL lovin' it!
Congrats Dave.

The familiar theme music plays, the clock and big eye fly by, & Rod Serling's voice chimes in - "Enter one ordinary man: artist, husband and father. A full-fledged member in the sorority of dreamers who's been driven to the very brink of The Trans Am Zone

Somehow I managed to meet David a couple years ago at Bristol... but i've never met his SE... looking forward to seeing it in person sometime!

Congrats David!

Hey, Jeri, I had forgotten that we met at Bristol!  I did remember meeting you at the Nats in '08.  Let's do it again this year!

LOL, yeah, some of my drag racing fans refer to me as "Dougzilla". (I really don't know how that pic got into the mix, maybe Doug is a TA fan.  If he's not, he should be.  :D)

Oh, no!  That pic was taken at an Air and Car Show at Virginia International Raceway in 2008.  The stunt pilot (Rob Holland) gave an award, and picked my car because he has always loved the black and gold TA's.  Gotta like his taste!
