Pictures from today!
I know it looks like I am going backwards here, but it is all part of the process.
I have been making steady progress and can see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Project will be completed within the next month!

I am back on the couch, enjoying a glass of red, while raving up the CK Forum.
Spent the entire day in the shop working on that dumb "Tub".........way to carried away here.
KISS for the next one for sure.

Brian, you are approaching Pur Sang and Singer quality. Luckily it does not make me feel intimidated, but instead challenged. ;-)

The intimidation factor needs to be considered IMHO. Some can cope, some ignore, some challenged, some go away.

Yes indeed Rhys,
A man would need to be very comfortable with his own masculinity to park his plywood box next to this masterpiece! Of course a woman would probably not give a rip and just have fun.

Is that a subtle criticism of wooden box cars Brian?

I hope that most people will be able to appreciate Brian's Miller for what it truly is.
Which is an example, not of what a cyclekart necessarily should be, but what one can be if the builder
has the means, and the desire to go this distance. It will be a real showpiece, and certain to get plenty of
well deserved accolades. But only a percentage of us would build one that way, even if we could. For many,
the simplicity of the more basic kart doesn't reflect it's inferiority. For them, the more bare bones approach
IS the truest expression of the breed. I guess my preference falls somewhere in the middle. I'd hate to see things swing too far either way. I really enjoy all the variety.

As is usual Dave , a very well considered response. Woody's Miller will be a work of art. I think there will be some opportunity to have a number of Miller CKs together. At least 2 that I know are almost museum pieces that could be almost too good to use!

Knowing Woody, this one won't suffer the indignity of being any pampered garage queen.

I'm cornfused now???? One day guys are getting a knock for posting what they are doing
with the knowledge from decades of experience and shop building and the next day someone
is asking for more of it. Which is it? Do you want pictures and dialog posted about what we're
building and what you are building in order to build in a more professional way or not?
I don't understand why someone who has worked his whole life should hide the skills
or be ashamed of that they worked hard to hone them.
If you don't want to improve you skill level fine, continue building in the same way, but
I think you should quite knocking those that have raised the bar a notch or two.
