    Nick's Garage finished his life dream, the Kawalski Challenger Build. Duplicating the white Challenger from the movie Vanishing Point.

    He just uploaded the first road cruise with it today on you tube.

                      I like the idea behind his vids , But they can drag on a bit and jump around too much.
                      If he could just stay focused on one subject per episode.

                        I've done buckets with off shelf generic body type repo buns.
                        It's hard and that seat back looks better than what I've done.
                        (Mine was more complex.)
                        It's hard.
                        But something doesn't look right.

                        Yes I watched it yesterday turned out great. The seats are wrong. Had to say it. Should be salt n pepper. Hounds tooth. If he wanted to replicate. And VP Challenger just had AM radio. Just saying.
