Who would have thought you could fit an entire car into a 16' U-Haul truck? The next hurdle was squeezing 8,000 pieces of TC into my already messy garage. Once it was in, my dad and I couldn't wait to go for a drive...

At least the steering wheel is on the proper side.

Hi Steve,

If your garage is messy then mine is a disaster for sure.

I thought I was bad when I did the GT6 but you are the winner on picking projects.

So will it be ready for the New Years Day run..... :D .....
