Jim, your wife needs to mass produce these covers/floor mats...they are great.

How does Leanne feel about a new career? ;D

Or sell the rights and patterns to some prospective buyer in Indonesia who will in turn get them make locally for a low cost, then export to the US and mark up at least 300 percent and sell to the hungry crowd of Hurricane buyers... ;D

Isn't that the WalMart formula? And after they've sucked the life out of the Indonesian suppliers, move on to the next lower cost impoverished nation and start all over again!

Jim,  "Your wife's got talent"    ;)

I agree with the others, she should start making the boots and floor mats. I know many of us Hurricane Lemmings would snap them up pronto.

I still enjoy seeing the photos of your really beautiful cobra...it's one of the best.

The trouble with people is not that they don't know , but that they know so much that ain't so.

Thanks guys. LeAnne is a master with a sewing machine. She just spent $14K on a new embroidery machine. Her "hobby room" has much cooler stuff than my shop.

Fantastic build. I helped unload it from the transporter and watched the build. Now, I need to move this car approximately 250' west into my garage, what do you say Jim, you like the corvettes anyhow?
