And they even used a lot of ZZ's pics! Talk about sticking the knife in!

It took me two days but I got through the build. You sir, have mad skills.
(Now I've got to get a thumper cam for my engine). Very inspiring.

Mr ZZ. Do you still go to AZ ? I'm in Phoenix it would be great to meet you and pick your brain.

I have fiberglass panels for a 1936 Packard V-12 roadster. You have a great eye for slicing and dicing these things.

That could make a cool ride - looks like just a bare shell so there's lots of bracing and structure work to do there, but what's a project without a challenge....
Here's a couple pics of a 37 Packard I saw in Yuma a couple years ago, a really nice fibreglas repro body made by the owner of Gibbon fibreglas, not sure if any others were made. Many of the hardware pieces, trim etc., are genuine including the frame - 350/350 SBC power. Probably not the direction you want to go, but it shows what can be done with a 'glas body.

ZZ, I found a Packard for you to drool over. Figured you might get a kick out of it!

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.

That's a real looker, Troy and HHR sure turn out some impressive cars. The only thing I would change is to use a genuine Packard V12 instead of that Lincoln V12 but that's just nit picking on my part...

Yeah, for some reason I wasn't keen on the Lincoln V12 either. Yeah, HHR builds some fine rides!
