You know Ray, there are lots of folks who dream of building their 'dream car'. Some have even started (like me) but there are DAMN FEW that get it finished. Good on ya! Tremendous accomplishment!

You did it! A really marvellous creation, Ray. This is a defining moment - finishing out your dream - in detail, and to the end. Bravo! So few can do this. This is for that rare category of person and you achieved it!

So i entered my car in the Forest Grove concours here in Oregon a couple weeks ago. They had a " hand built sports car class" Out of 5 cars entered i did not even place. All the others were glass. Should have been called a replica kit car class. The volunteer judges walked by the car very confused as what was going on. Ray

Congratulations. Finished work is a rarity these days, and it is also done extremely well.

So, each judge is a schmuck I guess.

Awards given to glass painters and not to a craftsman.
