Walt,

You called me but I haven't got MY check yet! ;)

Drive the snot out of it!

Maybe see you at Sebring Vintage next year, planning on attending.

Good luck Walt. Looking forward to seeing more pictures off the car.

Rick, is anything being planned this summer in the US? I was very excited about Watkins Glen last year.

Gd day Walt. Did CAV countersink the screws around the lights and side windows. I did on the vents, no problem but risky on the plastic. Did you consider hinging the nostril ? Mine may be tight if I hinge on the rear, not sure I want them on the front side, I'v seen a few.
 
Walt, sounds good! Glad you are not the "burnout leaving a show" type of guy! We had a moron at Cars and Coffee here in a Dodge Demon with Fl. dealer plates that used the line lock and did a big burnout...….in the aisle at the show! Needless to say he was "invited" to never return. He finished with a 120 MPH run down the street in front of the location. And people wonder why we can't get show/cruise locations...…………...
 
MR BILL,
THE PLEXI SCREWS ARE NOT COUNTER SUNK... DID NOT KNOW THE MK1'S WERE HINGED ? I PROBABLY WON'T CHANGE MINE (IF IS NO BROKE, LEAVE IT ALONE)

RICK,

BURN OUTS ARE THE FASTEST WAY TO SHUT DOWN A CAR SHOW... AND I WOULD NEVER THINK ABOUT GOING 120 MPH, IT IS AGAINST THE LAW :)

THANK YOU JP... STOP BY WHEN YOU ARE IN THE AREA... FREE RIDES FOR YOU ANYTIME MY FRIEND.

There have been about a half dozen cruises/shows shut down within 100-or-so miles of my place as the direct result of similar idiotic goings-on.

'No excuse for it...
