Ah yes, what would racing be without a little trash talk? Seriously though, Dennis B., I love your kart and the ingenuity of using the hood for body panels. I obviously also have a soft spot in my heart for any car which has the word "Special" in the name! Very cool CyckeKart buddy.

TomThanks for the kind words re: my CK. But dude your car is off the charts I saw Dennis Thomas video of all your detail including blueing the header pipe. Your car lines are what I had envisioned when I started but the again I just sliced and diced the Chevy truck hoods and when welded together itwas what it was. Starting to spank out two more Stevenson chassis cars and then will Maybe try something more high soot like Karl , Josh or Mike Soldanos framesBut once again thanks for the encouragement comming from you that is high praiseRegardsF

Dennis, the Burd has plenty of soot and is truly more finished than the Chrysler will ever be. Great job on a quick kart.
