Chris is a great guy, helped me out a ton with my gauge setup especially, and is just a cool guy to talk with. Thanks for all your help with my car Chris, and congratulations on getting car of the month buddy.. You deserve it, it's a good looking car.

Thanks Everyone for all the kind words.  This has really made me get on the ball to get my car on the road.  My block it at the machine shop and should be back in a couple weeks.  I can't wait. 

Thanks again everyone!

Great Choice :)  Love those white guage faces... and the blue led's would go great with my disco ball!  For a guy that's always gone working... you sure have made alot of progress on that TA... very nice!

Haha It makes for long nights.  Keep in mind it has taken me a long time to get here.  I just want to get her back on the road again.  I can't wait.

It's great to hear how Spotlighting someones "project car" take inspiration from the Spotlight to get their cars done.   

Man, I love my job.  ;D 

Thanks for the inspiration.  Haha. I needed it.  I still can't believe my car made the spotlight.  Thanks everyone!

Thanks CT Bird Fan for the complaments!  That chassis took me many many hours on my back to get to look like that, haha.  But well worth it in the end.  Now I just need people to get down on there hands and knees so all the work didn't go to waste.  haha
