    Mike-

    Another high quality and beautiful build! I always admire your work!

    I don't admire that snow on the ground though...

    Nice job Mike, and thanks for sharing some pics with us.

    Regards,

    Steve

    Great looking car, and perfect color, but of course, I’m prejudiced ... btw, what tires are those?

    Do you like the Mickey Thompson tires? I am looking to replace my tires with probably Cooper cobra tires but ran across the Mickey Thompson's as well, I was wondering what you thought about them and how long you've had them on your car? Do you pick up a lot of gravel and rocks that are thrown into your car from the sticky composite on the tires
