:police: umm,that is mike's 68' #^~! bbat
You are correct sir. Mike did an excellent job on the car and we plan to keep it that way. It is first class all the way and many Kudos go to Mike and Lakeville Auto Body. I had been looking for a tube chassis car for almost two years and when I heard about this one being available I decided to persue it. I am very picking about what I like and I have never bought a T/K car before like this. Anyone who has seen my cars knows I am pretty particular about their appearance and performance. For me to buy it says tons about the quality of the car and the components used. Yes I plan to enjoy it...Must have missed my post on the other board about getting the car.....
