So I figured I'd give an update for anyone who really cares...................

Trike manufacturer says that the expected shipping date is 12-21. If there is any delay, they will notify me.

So since that will involve the Christmas Holiday, I'll be lucky to see that part this year !!!!!

It is what it is.

I thought the world was going to end on 12-21 ? You shouldn't have paid in advance.

The finished product, a shameless plug, and a corny phrase on the sign. But the sign does get noticed. Customers comment on it all the time !!!!!

I am more than a pretty face you know............. :nana: :funny: :shh:


If you are impressed by this. Just wait until I finish up the Mach 1!!!!!!


Customer called today. He is bringing back the heater core case so I can finally start working on getting it back together and out the friggin door......

Now I just have to start searching for all the pics I took of it. I think I have them on 2 for sure but possibly 3 laptops. But pics will not really do it justice. Had a salesperson in the shop today telling me about the Barrett Jackson auctions. Then I showed her the Mustang and told her to take all the pics she wanted and to then go back and compare them to the pics she took at BJ. Then come back and tell me where I am any different.

Am I proud of the job we did. YOUR DAMN RIGHT !!!!! Hey Dennis, stop by near the end of the week or beginning of next week and see the finished product.

Anyone wanting to see it, feel free to stop by. If only I had the time, I'd take a run up I-81 to go to Marathon, NY ....................
