Congratulations, Frank! That's still one of the best looking Cherokees I've ever seen, and it's amazing that you've done so much of the fab work yourself.

I guess the Supra wing really helped out, luckily I landed in a lake and my wheels were spinning so fastz that I scrambled across it like those crazy scandanavians with their 4x4s that walk on wata. I go off of the lake just in time to hit a dirt field right before my flux capacitor quite.

It's in the driveway, gotta pull the motor and rebuild it. He should be ready to submit it for C.O.T.M. in a few years too.
