That's great to see it moving. I have a couple of questions. Are the stickers still on the rear tires? If not, were they removed the boring or fun way?

Y'all earned a break after the marathon you put in during the first 6 months of this year. Just don't let it sit for another 22 years before you get fired up again. We'll have to get Mike to give you a little pep talk like you gave him. Sure seems to work. :lol: I might need a dose, too, after I get my garage built. :roll:

I think I saw a picture of it on a Comet FB page. It was pulled behind a 65? Ford truck with a hauler that was kind of rusty like Rusty is. Was that you guys?

Maroon truck? It was on Mercury Cyclone, Comet and Montego Owners page. Here is the text.

I know a lot of guys aren’t into the patina car/rat rod thing but had to share this from Instagram. Perfection.
