Jeff Miller ROCKS

Hi guys
It has been a busy spring for us here in PA, a lot of traveling, Brendan is cranking in the shop. Now I finally have a moment to breath before we head to VIR for hyperfest with John Georges Coupe.
I do owe Jeff Miller a shout out. A few weeks ago bob-stl and myself flew in southern Cal. to pick up his newly painted Coupe from Millers paint shop.
Jeff was kind enough to let us use his assembly bay to prep the coupe for the long drive home to St. Louis.
Jeff went way above and beyond making sure the coupe was ready for the trip.
this made my Job easy. Bob and I spent the first evening lusting over the paint, and dining with Jeff and His family. Thanks for dinner Bob.
Good god Jeff can lay down some great paint why I dont live near him I do not know.
Next day Bob and I decided to expand the pass footbox to make the trip home more comfy.
Well worth the day. Jeff jumped in again and provided some aluminum, and the tools to do the job.
afterwards we participated in the
Hilborn tour
Davids BBQ
and the Hunt show.

It was great having a shop to base out of for the weekend.
So thanks again Jeff.

Yep, and we're going to hang him in Henry's trailer (cause he sure ain't sleeping with me...unless you're in the middle).

Good job Mark. I got to see Bob's car and it looks great, still haven't gone for a ride yet. Not sure how you and Jeff manage all the stuff you do. Still haven't finished the 'kit from hell' I'm doing.
It's running, but real tuning issues. Zero help from the vendor who sold me the the fuel and ignition system. The manufacturer, Borla, has been great. Together with FAST, they found a tuner close by to help, taking it there soon.
Jeff when you get caught up, and need another car to paint, let me know.

It was 100% my pleasure guys The "epic journey" to the west coast, Huntington Beach, Bat Cave (hole) and back home all woven together as part of "Bob's Coupe Story" is priceless. Personally I think you're NUTS. See ya in a few weeks.......Maui Carl....don't count us out just yet....da Bat

Drink me handsome and take me home....Bartender, I'd like to buy the little lady a drink...better make it a double.

One of the great things about our hobby are the fantastic folks in it! People like da Bat, Ken Pike, Mark D.,Wayne Presley, Mark at Breeze, Jeff at Whitby and many more that have been working in this business should be burnt out by this time helping so many others on their cobra journey but they treat every one like its day one, with the same enthusiasm they felt when they started. This is a great family of wonderful folks, very diverse but all with a common love of a great American Icon! You just gotta love that!
