Hi Steve,

Tonneau looks great. The headrests look good and functional. Just hope you never need them.

And that looks to be a good buy on the trailer. Only complaint I would have is there is no wheel on the tongue. With a 2X6 floor it might be a bit heavy to move by yourself. Would be for me but I'm old. Like the length of the tongue. Helps when you back up.

Cheers!


I can always put one on, they aren’t very popular anymore. I’ve had to put them on the last couple trailers. This weighs 800lbs. Should move around pretty easy. Give me a couple years I’ll pull the wood and put on diamond plate. The bifold door added a couple hundred and spare tire I ordered.

Yeah, that tonneau cover looks excellent.

Cheers,

Ready for knoxville again this year. The tow system is in place. Took it for a spin on the highway. Awesome. I’ll take pics and keep you posted.

Looks good Steve. Better fit than mine. My nose cone hangs over the front a little.

Cheers

In Green Bay we have a very loosely organized car club called the Garage Session. So once a month on the 3rd Thursday they have a session. I signed up in March for July. So I hosted a session. Was pretty fun. They were really enamored with the 7. Kinda funny with all their cool hand built cars. We’re all bit by the same bug that’s for sure. These were some of the cars. I had about 45 guys here.

Cool bunch of autos!

My trailer is 12' X 6'. My car may be longer than yours. Had to cut the rail away in front.

The only 2 pics I have from the weekend. We ran the Dragon and the Cherohala Skyway and some others. The car was defiantly put to the test following a 911 all weekend. Other than the straights I was able to hang with him. He’s not a slack driver either, knows these roads and knows the car. I think we had an average speed of 35-40 mph on the Dragon. That is something else. I got to know the car and really feel when the tires where hot and not. Very important feeling in the seat of the pants. Good times. If you get the chance to run these roads don’t pass it up. The Cherohala can handle speeds up to 80 and corners at 55 on the tighter ones and 60 or so on the longer sweeps. I had my buddy playing a little ketch up on this one. Kinda funny.

Very cool. Thanks for posting the pictures. Your car has a really nice stance on the road

Cheers,
