This feature is just what I needed to inspire my 66 Canso build.  Your car is one of my favorite color combo's and is truly one of a kind build. Thank you for all your efforts in posting this build because it is a testament to the patience and conviction necessary to complete such a project.  I really like the power seat, the controls are beautiful and just jump right out at you when the door is opened.  That is the one item I may copy from your car.  I'm limiting myself to one item, out of respect for your efforts.   Of course, my car did have a fawn interior and seeing your car reminded me how much I like that look.

Drive and enjoy it, job well done.

Norm 


 Thanks Norm! Feel free to use anything you can from my build. It is what this hobby is all about, car guys helping/sharing with car guys.   It is more of an honor than insult when someone uses your idea and improves it. Hope your cars off the market so I can fallow your build.wink   Jim

And another very worthy feature car. Will be a great month seeing it at the top every day. Beautiful job Jim, your car will be the inspiration for the build of my 67 for my daughter.

All that work and decision making has come together into one fine looking car. You have every right to be proud of it.

You've combined the look of the old with upgrades of this century quite successfully. I'll bet it really moves yet it is good on fuel. Congrats on being ride of the month.

Congrats on car of the month! Sorry I didn't put two and two together or I would have congratulated you in person tonight at coffee. Very nice. Well deserving. Too bad you weren't able to bring it on your road trip.

66's had such great lines and yours is surely one of the best.
