You know, I never could quite take a liking to the Stag.
I knew that there was nothing wrong with them, and I wanted to like it. But still I just didn't see one in my future.
Gary's car has changed all that.
What a wonderful looking car.
No gaudy body mods, just a bunch of well thought out revisions. Along with some excellent craftsmanship, that really work well together.
Very nicely done Gary.

Cheers
Fred

I liked the work you've done, very nice looking car. It looks like you've used copper line on the front brake hookup. I hope that you didn't. Copper isn't up to the pressure in a modern brake system. John
