The Meyer Bros. stopped by the shop for a little last minute inspecting before they go at it. Blue Austin is on the rack checking rear tire clearance, and the orange Tyco VW is getting the frontend checked. I don't know how this story will end...RM

Smooth 57

Here's a clean up job that came in last week. I try and keep a little work lined up for the the boys. The high price of gas has slowed things down a little at the shop. The boys had done a little work on this Tyco 57 a few years back. This was a blue flamed Tyco 57. The blue flames have been removed, some chrome foil added, a little detail paint work added, just a smooth, clean, ride...RM
