Mike surprised me today by presenting me with a model he made of my Mach 1 as it sits right now.

He's got it right down to the faded grabber blue exterior, stripped engine compartment, bare rear quarter extensions and front fender extensions, black valences, black hood, black NOS left front fender, blue original right front fender, missing taillights and rear trim, and many other parts. The new rear wing and louvers are there. He even went as far as painting the inside floors the original medium blue metallic, and duplicating the scratches on the doors and rear quarter. The gas tank is removed, just like our Mach, as we are prepping the trunk area.

I wonder if he is trying to tell me something...

That's wild. And I thought I was pretty good with the 65 Rivy model I did a couple years ago to look like the one I was driving when my wife and I met.

I laughed the whole time I made it. I thought I was going mad for a while there!

Thats cool, I never thought of something like that. I use to take my Dad's hot iron and put dents in 'em though. When all my car started looking that way my Dad quit buying them for me. Oh man this made me remember something. I went to my friends house when I was younger. My friends Dad brought him a new bike. My friend and I had watched a Stock car race on tv. Anyways he and I got hammers and beat the dog out of then new bike. I wasn't allowed over for a month.

That's too cool!

But... if he has THAT much time on his hands; put him to work on the 1:1 scale version!

My brother has given me nothing but wedgies...I'd rather have the 'stang...
It is very nice. One can only hope he adds the appropriate parts as the real one gets closer to completion.
