Oh jeez.... just when I've accepted the fact that it'll be quite a while before I can purchase a kit, I make the mistake of logging into the roadsters forum and I see a car like this... and I'm back to thinking about buying pantyhose to put on my head and visit some banks to finance this monster.

Your first pic of the car inside the covered bridge is amazing. Do you have high res so I can put it on my desktop and live vicariously through you? Please? Pretty pretty please?
