Hi Rudy....AND Hi Dad! I love your car, but most of all I love how it's a "family" thing. There is nothing like having a good father/son relationship. 'Course it's nice having a good mechanic for a Dad either. Anyway, you two look like you get along like we're all supposed to. I only wish it were like that for me and my son. It's good, but not quite as good as you and your Dad. On another note, it looks like you've built your five seven pretty much "old school" and that is THE best!

Oh, by the way, hope to meet up with you someday or other, since we don't live THAT far apart. We're in SoCal, just south of Santa Ana. Let us know when you travel to any shows or races or whatever and we'll attempt to do the same. We've gone to Bakersfield, Famoso a couple of times and enjoyed it a lot. Being close to you, I'll bet you've been there too. Well, keep on keepin' on, and be well.
