Yup, that guy, the hooligan.

Looking great, Brian. Yes, the 67 color is much nicer than 68, 69, 70 dark greens.

Thanks Jeff ;)

This is so much less stressful just "doing it for myself"! Glad I'll not be selling this baby..

The engine work and the paint are equally beautiful. I do like that shade of green also. Nice!
