Neil,

It certainly adds greater meaning to "Built by hand".
If there was an award, other than the finished product for excellence, you should receive it.

Neil,

The progression is amazing. I've been watching your build from the start, and every time I check in I am floored. You are a gifted metal worker. I wish you were in the states would love to come over and visit and learn from the master.

Andy

Absolutely mind-boggling, Neil. What will we do when the talent you and others like you possess moves on!

I think I remember that car for sale on CT craigslist about 5 yrs ago. Crazy to see it made its way to OZ, and to a very good home! What a lucky car...
