This is the only place, except China, you will get to see the amazing fish Duane put together for our hood ornament. (Thanks for encouraging him Micki.) The fish has a mouth that opens and closes using a coontrol rod from the drivers seat! Kinetics?

And here are ALMOST all of our sponsors as they show up on the machine. We have to put the Konaboldt Coffee stickers on in China...

Here are the last few photos, we'll have some better ones once we return in November...

And last, but not least, Duane added all of "the builders" names on top of the rear bumper so we will always get the proper credit for building this fabulous machine!
