            Tell her thats awesome that she's got it done. That's something that she will hold in her heart forever. My hat is off to you for being a dad like that to make a dream come true for your child. Be proud my friend as so many dads and mom's never get a chance do you what you have just done. My hat is also tipping for your wife for the support and backing you and her. Give your wife a big hug from all of us from fbbo for mother's day. Now maybe she can take mom out for mother's day in the new ride you can tag along to pay. Really something to see. Thanks, Barry

                Try the direct link to google drive... or click the box and arrow in the upper right corner of the video box that will take you to google drive directly.

                Apparently like father like daughter..... almost a 500 mile round trip long weekend for a show in the mountains. Duster: Best Chrysler Product; Coronet: Best Paint and Body.... (don't agree but I was not the judge)

                  Congrats. I hadn’t seen the duster finished, turned out awesome. Congrats to your daughter (and you) on a great car. I bet you’re a proud dad.

                            No she is..... only she wants MORE power than the Duster.... She has a choice from the guy we got the Duster from.... '71 Demon 340 4 speed (yes she can drive a stick), '68 Dart with GT trim, '68 Barracuda couple or, if we can convince him to sell it, '68 Barracuda convertible. The all need a complete restoration but that is what I apparently do......

                                Did she learn sticks by driving a VW? Lol, so very easy! You couldn’t stall them things! Vote is for GT if it gets to that. Love the round markers,natch.

                                Quick story- high school classmate of mine went on Phoenix golf outing, went into clubhouse and bartender was son of our classmate. Serendipity indeed.
