Thank you, I have been working on it off and on since 1971, as these things can't be rushed. I did most of the body and paint work when I was 14/15 years old, though I did final paint 12 years ago and yes in the spirit of my youth I painted it out of spray cans. As far as how fast, with the 4 HP engine, on a good day and a hefty dose of fearlessness it will run about 45 MPH. But at that speed the citizens could never soak it the coolness of it all.
