    Correct, a year gives me some planning time to see what I really want to do with the 210.

    Here it is in its current state.

    Seems a shame to even think about touching such a beautiful car BUT as we've seen, there AIN'T no stopping the "bam"!

    OH and I doubt you could go a year without YOUR hands in the mix. It's too much in your blood!

    I (we all) wish you the best going forward regardless!

    Henry,

    Thanks for the comments on the 210 being beautiful, but its not a shame to touch it, its simply hotroddering. At least thats what I tell my wife when she ask why I can't leave it alone.lol I say "Babe you knew I was a rodder when you married me".

    That guy isn't leaning against your fender is he? That would be a good excuse to use your tazer.

    OMG LEN!

    My EXACT thoughts when I opened the link!

    Back in our day, that was one of the biggest NO NO's!

    And you, "bam", stand up tall and suck in all those compliments you worked SO long and HARD to get to!

    Happy For YOU!!!

    Nope he is not leaning on the truck its the camera angle. That guy is a amazing builder and has too much respect for the work involved to do such a thing. Stop being trouble makers.lol

    We're not being trouble makers man, just we saw something that looked like a person leaning on what we all watched you sweat over and that was our initial reaction.

    Don't forget, you were there while we only see a picture and we would obviously protect you, 'bam'.

    Hey, forgot to mention, that's a good looking black 55 next to your truck. You must feel SO good being PART OF THE SHOWS this year. Wish I could be there to see your face.

    Happy for you, again!

    Henry

    PS: Listen, we most likely will never meet but you have quite a LARGE FAN CLUB RIGHT HERE!

    Thanks man and yes I will take care of her but I'm not going to be nuts about it. I'm happy with the dyno numbers its way more than enough power to push that truck down the road and have fun while doing it. Thanks man
