Just some random things I’ve done in the past year or so , some full sized paint and a little vinyl design as well. 

First is a 24"x48" vinyl lighted sign I created for a good friends home shop...

Next was a speed shop jacket for me...

Thanks guys,probably not the place to continue this thread but it follows nicely. This is proof that time does not do old cars any good, fast forward 42 ish years later,

Scott finds the car in this condition, he's determined it has to be saved because it truly is a K code 289 1966 Mustang GT and he's just started his career path

as a body guy... Found a nice rust free 6 cylinder coupe to be a donor shell, pulled and rebuilt my drivetrain and the 200 inline six is the current powertrain in

my daughters old 1982 Mercedes 300, win win...

Now it is complete..

And apparently ,it didn't scare him off, he's now opened his own restoration shop called Running Horse Restorations in Trenton and has decided to tackle another fastback save for his folks this time..

 No sh!t on the can do attitude bud. My get up and go left awhile back, lol and every once in awhile you run into one of the young guy's with it anymore.  Where was the bottle plant in Cambellford Chris for the cream soda, I don't remember, ??.  Good mustang story bud, a lot of guy's don't know your pedigree, lol. When you had it as a pup is about the same era i lived there for awhile when I was a broker on Durham Transport. Thats a big change with the k/w.   Good for you.
