If I didn't have half a dozen unfinished projects I would have been there hours ago...

I hope someone picks it up and finishes it, those are pretty nice when done.

Slightly off topic location but all of a sudden some unusual ane unusually low priced kit cars have been hitting the market locally... including a trike kit (http://seattle.craigslist.org/see/pts/4486328618.html).

This is what chocked my glockenspiel today. With all that overhang it might hide the V6/091 combination I have sitting here doing nothing.

I'm Shocked, Rob... I know we could find a trailer to get it to your house...

I need to come see the Thing sometime... before you start messing with it too much. I'd Probably customize the hell out of it... Somthing like this... I know you have a rivet gun.

I somewhat feel sorry for the guy giving the car away. Bet he is getting all kind of dreamers calling him.
The Amante design sure was nice looking.
