    Man, that thing is clean. You guys could just wash and wax it, then spend the rest of the time drinking beer.Then claim to have spend hundreds of hours getting it ready to go and no one would be the wiser. Just my 2 cents.  ;)

    Very cool guys!!!! What a neat machine!

    Not sure if it would be a good idea for me to be there....I would be like a kid in a candy story and drooling on the treasures around Dirtman's palace  ;) And making tracks with his rear engine machines  ;D So what I am getting at is I would probably not be much help  :D

    Hey Milt, I am really digging that 71 Charger!!!! Another machine on my list to get some year!

    I am in Duluth.  You probably have the engine work covered but If you need any help, I know that 297 JLO very well.  Happy to donate my time to freshen up the old one lunger.

    To all of you charity volunteers I truly respect your creativity and efforts! My following thoughts are of deepest respect to all of the great minds that surround this website and please hear me out.
    The old sled manufactures produced not only commercial sleds , but also hand built factory racers. One could say the factory racers had the most current performance tricks incorporated into them . I would love to see all of your great minds collaborate on a vintage customer for the Charity build . The sled would have a racer theme , an old school design , and all of this groups twist on style.
    We all have cherished custom hot rods , chopped bikes , and factory muscle sleds think of what could be created from this group! Sure 2016 is underway but what would this group produce if this was embraced for 2017?
    Just food for thought.
    Judging by ebay
    everything  I
    have is very rare

    show up early, stay late? show up later, whenever you can make it guys!     ;)   tear down is not gonna take long, then the deciding who wants to do what, when, where.   painting, chroming ideas.  IT'S ALL ABOUT THE GATHERING OF VINTAGE SLED HEADS!    8)   oh did i mention BS?  stories that will turn into legends that carry on for centuries!    ;D
