2211 hours of work 99% complete

Photo Recap:
July 2, 1014


July 1, 2015



July 3, 2016



July 24, 2017




Get this : July 2, 2014 to April 8, 2018 is 1376 days.

Here is where the story gets good!
Today April 8, 2018, this was my first "Looking Through the windshield" photo on its way to the Food Loin AutoFair.
Yes, The Truck went to its first Car Show today.
The Show numbers boast 150,000 people over 4 days.
There are 10,000 assigned spots for people to sale parts.
There are around 1,000 cars on display everything from movie cars, Rat Rod to brand new Cars. Keep this in mind for about whats next to come.





The truck Won BEST OF SHOW with the Car Club that I go with. This was at noon today.
This meant I got to drive through winner circle and get photos taken.
This photo was it waiting to go in.



Strange thing, once I got a photo taken they pulled me to the side and told me to go to the back of the line. This was at 2:15pm today
I was like Huh? Here it is waiting to go back through again.
It this point I still had no idea why I was back in line.




The Truck Placed second over all the cars that entered the Auto Fair! Yes, second over all cars entered.

I try to never put people in the email thread but this case I had to, this is Me.



I ended up 2nd place out of a 1000ish cars. Iíll take it.



now to finish up I like about 40 hours left.

It takes patience, skill, and $$ to produce a winner. You have obviously brought these ingredients together in just the right amounts. Congratulations! You can be very proud of what you have accomplished!!

Many start this journey but few finish. And of those that finish, even fewer have the talent and perseverance to build an award winner. I can only guess where you need to spend an additional 1% to complete your achievement. Perhaps itís the final coat of polish that will capture your glowing smile in the surface reflection.

Thanks for sharing your work of art with us.
