well, astro, primah-donah (with son kyle) and myself visited with frank and karen today to check out the progress on no. 9. i will let frank update all on his progress, but it was nice to be able to spend the better part of a day with some very nice people. special thanks to frank for suggesting and john ? buying us some outstanding burgers and fries at stanleys.
no. 9 is coming along very handsomely. i truly appreciate the time it takes to envision and execute the endless tricks present in this build. i know what it is like to spend hours circling and thinking about the in's and out's of a particular system and how it will blend into a particular build. i like what i see.
again, thanks for the warm welcome! don't forget about astro's party and our offer to land here anytime. best regards. john

It iis all ways great to see members that live in a certain area get together.
From the stance it really looks like Franks vision of having a van that handles drives, performs like a Vette is materializing.
Astro is the shortest vanner in the group and he can see over the roof.
Looking forward to the first event that this van rolls into.
