Congrats guy. Looks good. I bet you enjoy that one alot.
It's not about the final destination, it's about the trip getting there.
The road isn't for making good time. It's for having a good time.

     Congrats to you and your car.  And thanks to Jeff for making you finally bring it to the Nats.  I had the privelege of parking next to it every night at the Drury. Sweet car.  I like it, a lot!
