A Dino in any color, please!

In my own personal opinion, The Ferrari Dino is by far one of the most beautiful classic sports cars out there. Maybe even one of the most beautiful cars Ferrari ever produced, even! Named after Enzo Ferrari's son, Alfred "Dino" Ferrari, who died of Muscular Dystrophy in 1956, the car was produced from 1968 to 1976 and was offered in a V6 and V8 model. The car was put in place by Ferrari as an "affordable" sports car to run with the Porsche 911.

Whatever the color, I would certainly be stoked to own one of these! Well... Maybe not the purple one. HAHA!

Progress... Yet still so much to do

So close, yet so far away! Getting there! I think I counted something like 46 more fabrication tasks for the body alone, not including prep and paint. OUCH! But, it's getting there.
