Congratulations Jeff!  The recognition of your hard work is well deserved!  Long time coming with this old girl... almost a hopeless case... well, not almost... she was being sold as a parts car... and probably rightfully so... what a disaster of rust, about a billion tack weld metal patches over rust... there wasn't much body left to save... but you did it... you did it.  Alot of literal blood, sweat... and i'll rat you out... some tears... thousands of %$#!!!! later...  She stole your heart early on... but then became the ball and chain in the end... You have had more sanded off fingerprints and gashes in your head... remember the "Enter Sandman" picture?  You were covered completely with black... That girl was often a curse for you I know. 

But you fought the good fight... and you won... the work and detail down to stickers and redoing the spare... every nut and bolt redone... you did crazy stuff that no one will ever see because it's the right thing to do... like refurbishing the seat springs and frame... she probably didn't look that good coming off the showroom floor.  Thank you for giving it a try and for doing it well.  She's beautiful and i'm looking forward to sharing the incredible work you did at the Nats in August.
