Well, the roadster's flames are gone. . . sort of. I had Gilson Body & Paint in Reno take it down to bare aluminum---you knew the hood was aluminum, right?!---and start over. Now it's ghost flames over Motorsport stripes. . . . I think I'll take the car to Monterey for the Central Cal Chapter's West Coast Concours. Display only: I ain't buyin' no Q-Tips. Then I guess I'll have to go find another Waffle House.
