Jim:

Paid a visit to Mr_Bruce's "skunk works" this past Saturday. He was hard at it. There's lots of interesting stuff going on with your project for sure...It will definitely be a one-of-a-kind FFR!

- Allen.

I think a lot of us are exited and looking forward to see a 'Mr Bruce' custom cobra. It is very, very interesting! It makes me contemplate robbing my childrens college fund.

Bruce indicated he uses rocks to type with so I am a sending him some SD cards to take pictures. Then I'll get the cards in the mail and share.

When I first reached out to Bruce about the opportunity I had no idea he had these options available to the extent he does. Top, flares, fiberglass boxes, trunk pan, etc. I'm really excited to see how this turns out. One of the things I'm looking forward to is getting the car done then bringing it up there so Bruce can see it.

Allen, please bring Bruce coffee. It's cold in Florida so I know it's brutal up there.
