Hey Weeds, you were close last time I was up to visit, see you got the window regulators worked out. Beautiful job you and the boys did. What's next????
I sold my Pitts S1D and the Wag-A-Bond this summer and am turning the hanger into an auto shop.
Nice work neighbor.

George, Yakima, Denny, Pete & Big Tee, you guys are too kind. I have over 350 miles on it and the interior is still unfinished. It looks a lot better in the pictures than it actually does. I am still waiting on a steering wheel from Summit so I can wire up the horn. I am going to have to do something with the front sway bar. It ended up only about 3 inches off the ground and it scrapes on any little bump. Also I am getting under 10 MPG. Maybe you guys could go to the new Crash Box forum and give me some advice?

Congratulations Denny on selling your airplanes, Mine are all sold too. The Rearwin went to DeKalb and the Speedster went to Holland MI. Flying was good but driving this Sub to shows and cruises is great. The people I meet are great also and I find we have a lot in common.

I hope to finish the interior this winter and I am not going to put it away until the snow flies. I will try to put up more pictures.

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.

You need to move your question out of the welcome thread as its own post. Its getting lost where it is.

Your Suburban does look great in the photos!


Its true, I really don't do anything but browse the Internet looking for trouble...
