Looks fun. I did a MKIII into a 20 footer years ago. It was a blast to drive, but the late model seats are were too big and the padded dash really interfered with my knees. On the other hand, I'm afraid that the 1275 in it might have ruined the Bugeye's 948 for me.

That really looks great, and as a 10 footer he won't be afraid to drive it to the Piggly-Wiggly!

At that price, he needs to get all the paint off that chrome & get the area below it painted black.

Not a great photo; but, here's mine:

Yep, brit cars are out of his system.

He only has three mustangs and a studabaker truck and a chevy under restoration at the moment.

He seems to be able to buy cheep, fix up for the most part and sell high.

Intresting old guy.

Oh yea, usually all but one are up in Crestview where he pays a guy that does the real work, paint and such.

He just messes mostly but tells good stories, gets me out of the house, and enjoys life.
