Gerry! It's gorgeous! It has come a long way since I saw it as a 'Frankenstein' project a couple of months (no, not that long) ago! Echo, the WOW, and toss a few in myself! Nice colour!

Strange? It's hosted on the TDIClub pic server. Try going to to pics.tdiclub.com, login with your TDIClub username and password, then refresh this page. Maybe that will help.

Whoever took this picture did a great job in photo shop. Look at the antenna, the whip is still there, but not the base. At first I thought the whip was a branch or something off the tree. Also the house and yard behind it a re a little messed up.

EDIT: Never mind, I see it is a photo shop for Mark Smyth and his next possible creation kit car. My bad.

What are you going to call it? Jettruck or PickaJett.
You told me you were going to build this, I guess you weren't kidding. Very nice.

Time for someone to step in and speak for Curmudgeons-R-Us...

How many pounds of snow can you carry in the back?
