Very Nice Firebird. I saw pictures, on a few other Boards, of all your Hard work it took you to get her that way. I know it took a lot but it sure came out GREAT.

Doug,



Congrats on the 2nd place award. The car is a Number 1 in my book just based on the all the hard work, time and skill that you put into the car. That holds a lot more weight than a 99 point car that was bought completely finished by its owner.



Great job with such a high level of competition at this level at the Trans Am Nationals.
